I recently posted about Zibbet - a new international site for handmade and vintage, created by two Sydneysiders ('Zibbet' comes from the word 'exhibit').
I wanted to tell everyone about the site because sellers can sell items for free- with no listing fees, no monthly fees and no commission on sales with a basic account!!! The basic account allows you to have a store with 25 items at a time, and pay nothing at all- sounds good to me :)
There's also the premium account with lots of cool features, including unlimited listings/relisting, a customised shopfront that even allows you to add widgets including an etsy mini, twitter links, facebook fan box and project wonderful advertising- which might mean your shop ends up paying for its own advertising!
Premium accounts are currently available for a reduced monthly fee of $7, but for every person you refer who signs up for a premium account, $1 will be taken off your monthly fee. So refer 7 people and it's free for life!
Readers of this blog are also being given the chance to win a free premium account! Info about the giveaway below :)
Part of my Customised Zibbet Shop
I think Zibbet is a very promising site, and they're extremely responsive to sellers' suggestions. It's a great option for those wanting to try out another selling venue. Also, seeing as we have to put so much effort into promotion, why not direct the traffic that you're generating yourself to a shop where you don't have to pay any fees?
