After months of debating I finally gave artfire a try. Artfire is a handmade shopping community quite similar to Etsy. While I like etsy and all of my customer base is there, I really have fallen in love with Artfire. I really like that I don't have to pay transaction fees, and having a sale is a easy as checking a box. My favorite thing of all is that I can create my listing on 1 page. There aren't several pages to go through. Right now we are on the basic plan, which has limited features, but is free for listing and trans fees. I would love to eventually move my entire clientelle to Artfire and upgrade to pro ($16 a month, but still no additional listing or trans fees) because the features are just awesome there. In the meantime I am just trying to put more focus on my artfire shop and waiting for growth. If you have been thinking of trying it out, you should, it's free for goodness sake!
