ARTFIRE Versus ETSY
Sunday November 30 th
ArtFire - Buy Handmade - Sell Handmade

The Buzz is on ..

A New Artisan Market Place has opened its BETA version .... "ARTFIRE" and it has people talking .....

~ BETA means it is still being finetuned ...the official release will be next year ....once all the little niggles have been smoothed out ..once people have test driven the system and it has been optimized ...

~ The reward for those who are happy to work as part of this emerging Seller Community at the BETA stage as "TESTERS" is sweet
~Artfire offers right now ( until December 25th ) the Artisan Stimulus Package... " A $7 per month flat rate sellers account ...no commision charges , no listing charges, nothing else to pay EVER! So wether I sell one artwork or 1000 ... I can build the business at my own speed ... ...after that the ALL INCLUSIVE Monthly Rate is $20 /month ..which is still and excellent deal worth considering

~ they have a Comparison Chart Etsys versus Artfire here

~ Personally I have always struggled a little with Etsy , never being able to get much service over there... yes I have been impressed with the attention of ARTFIRE so far..I fired a few emails at them and got answers within 24 hours
~ they have a great forum where sellers can exchange ideas, ask for help etc ...so a real community feel to it .. I have a real good feeling about this one ...

Artist Date DRAW
Sunday November 30 th

Details for the November Artist Date Draw can be found here
November Artist Date Draw -- closing DAte for all entries is December 5th ( I am addingl add a few extra days due to people having celebrated Thanksgiving over at the US :-))
