  • Selling Bead Bracelets

    Hi everyone.

    Ive been making simple beaded bracelet sets with charms, I ve put some on ebay, but because of the overwhelming amount of items on there, they aren't selling. Does anyone know of any other websites that will sell my items for me. I dont mind if they take a cut, as ebay do that anyway.
    Looking for some guidance. Thanks.

    I gave up on eBay for my jewellery about 18 months ago when they put their shop prices up massively (though I still have a Beads & Findings ebay shop). How about Etsy, Folksy & Misi? I haven't sold on them myself but lots of people here do. Or have a go at your own website? You can buy a DIY website from Mr Site for a reasonable price (I have 2) and they are fairly easy to set up. The only thing is to get yourself promoted, which is where Twitter, Facebook and Myspace come in handy!

            I tried to sell ready made bracelets on eBay too only to find that I didnt sell anything!

            I have tried again recently (dropped the prices right down) and these are selling but have mainly stuck to the findings and supplies as I see that a lot of people prefer to make their own.

            Thanks

              I would not recommend ebay. I have some info about selling your jewellery in my free guide. But for more help you could take a look at www.ibeadmag.com This month there is an article about how a lady got an order for 30,000 units of earrings she made, and she did this online.

              She did ofcourse target the wholesale market, but there is some good advice and info to be got there.

                i am thinking of trying ebid.co.uk

                since they improved their layout
                they say it is the second biggest marketplace in the UK
                anybody has had experience with them?
                thank you

                  I have shops on Misi, Folksy and Etsy with the most success on Folksy. There are a lot of jewellery makers out there so it can be hard to get your name out there, but give it a go. good luck!

                      I tried ebid for a while. I got a few sales (beads, not crafts), but I didn't put enough time into it to make it a success. (It's not so easy to keep a separate stock of beads for a site like this).

                      It is slower than ebay, but I found it a nicer place to be. I joined ebid when the banks were crashing, and I haven't done anything on it for about a year, so it may have changed.

                        Promoting you website is a completely different kettle of fish. But why not set up as many avenues as possible to sell them. BT Tradespace allow you to set up a profile and contact details, display your images and allow you to sell them via paypal, might be worth looking into.
