So, I found out yesterday that Amazon has launched, and is in the process of expanding its own new program Amazon Handmade. I think it could have a distinct advantage over Etsy because it’s new and Amazon of course has millions of daily visitors. With everyone starting off fresh; it’s a chance to get in on the ground floor of an amazing opportunity.
I signed up for an invitation. I was surprised they didn’t ask for pictures due to the nature of the questions they ask. The whole form takes maybe 10 minutes to fill out and asks about your main product, how many items you sell, if you make them completely yourself or if you have employees etc. For now they are opening up for only a few categories, but plan to expand. I hope that I will be invited as it would be a great way to keep selling my products once the craft show season ends for me next month.
I already use Amazon’s sellers account for other items, so this should be easy enough to do.
