Never put all of your eggs in one basket....that keeps running through my head these days. I no long have a shopping cart on my website, let that go 2 years ago and of course I have my shop at Etsy. But you may or may not know, Etsy is having serious issues and many vendors are up in arms and frankly worried about the dive in sales, for many sellers. I have checked out other venues, and Zibbet made me stop and take notice. Let me tell you about it...

"You have the choice between either a Basic or Premium account...
Basic accounts are totally FREE. We give you your own shop, web address, outstanding promotional tools and customer support, all for FREE. With a Basic account you can have up to 25 items in your shop at a time. When an item sells, you can replace it by listing another one. You can sell as many items as you want and you won't pay us a cent!

Premium accounts are $8/month (limited number available at this special price). You can upgrade to a full-featured Premium account at any time, and enjoy the freedom of listing as many items as you want, plus the flexibility of having full control over the customization of your shop's color theme, and layout."

Google Zibbit, go to the site...give it a try! If you would like to join, they do have a referral program, allowing the person who you refer, to get some money off their monthly payment. You can read about the referral program as well, if you would like to use my referral code, I would appreciate it so much!  Link is below...

  1. I did sign up at Zibbet a month or so ago, but haven't listed anything. I don't know... it just kind of bothers me that they seem to have copied Etsy down the last detail. (I like authenticity!)
    And I still prefer a per item listing fee to a monthly one. Maybe if they implement that option for something between basic and premium...

  2. Thanks for the link, will check Zibbet out! I probably won't sign up until it's been a huge success for thousands and then it's a magnet for the entire world to list and sell, and there's a forum to bitch in. But I will use your referral number when I do! :)

  3. I registered several months ago just to reserve my shop name but have not set up a shop. I've joined four others including Artfire and Dawanda and Etsy has been the only viable one. I might give Zibbet a try when the stampede is over and they can prove their servers can handle the traffic.

  4. I love your little tins, I wish you luck at the new selling spot. I do not sell anything.
    But I am thinking about it.
    Have a great Easter, Mary

  5. Just dropped by to check it out. Site loads too slow for a selling venue for me, shoppers get impatient, I'll take a look again later to see if it's any faster.
