I have been looking for an easy and inexpensive way to expose my
product to the Internet. The best thing I have found so far is:
where for $39/mo I can get up to eight pages of photos and a listing
about me and my company. They also have 850+ craftsmen, artist, etc.
They only deal with artists or companies that make handmade products.
The 10,000 retailers who have signed up, pay nothing, but must
qualify re: credit, etc.
The description page about the artist, their company, etc. is
extremely easy to enter without a great deal of typing etc. There is
no charge for any of the sales that are made through them.
The only problem is that it is restricted to retailers only thus
pricing is wholesale (multiple units). What I need is a similar
situation except that the site would be a place for the end consumer
to go and buy at the regular retail price. Thus I could get the
retail price for my one of a kind products. Or I can list in both
types of sites and cover the retailer and the end consumer.
I have done a brief search and can not find a good Web company that
lets a producer sell to the end consumer. There are some out there
by they don’t seem to be of the quality, character, integrity, and
VOLUME of wholesalecrafts.com. Is anybody out there dealing with such
a company that they would recommend? Also would appreciate it if
there are any other GOOD retailer sites like wholesalecrafts that I
can check out.
PLEASE NOTE: I have only talked to wholesalecrafts and have not
signed up yet with them. Therefore I am not 100% sure that they will
deliver as promised but the facts of their volume and site statistics
Please feel free to contact me directly.
