Buy And Sell Handmade Items ~ Move Over Etsy And Similar Sites…Amazon Handmade Is Here!

Etsy isn’t the only online venue where artisans, crafters and DIYers can sell their handmade goods. Or where buyers can search for and find unique goods. Especially now that Amazon Handmade is here!

If you are a hand crafter, you now have a new option for selling your unique handmade items through Amazon Handmade.

How it works if you want to sell:

You must apply to be considered to sell at Amazon Handmade. If your products meet the specifications at Amazon Handmade, you could receive an invitation to sell.

Handmade Specifications: All products must be made entirely by hand, hand-altered, or hand assembled (not from a kit). Products must be handmade by you (the artisan), by one of your employees (if your company has 20 or fewer employees), or a member of your collective with less than 100 people. Mass-produced products or products handmade by a different artisan are not eligible to sell in Handmade.

All applications will be reviewed by the Amazon team. Find out more about selling online at Amazon Handmade.

If accepted to sell your handmade items, you will follow 4 simple steps to sell your goods:

1. Register to sell at Amazon
2. Create your artisan profile
3. Setup your products
4. Start selling

If you are a lover of hand made items, you now have a new place to find and purchase unique items you may not be able to get anywhere else.

Here are the categories of handmade products currently available, if you’re looking to buy: handmade Jewelry, Home products (Artwork, Baby Bedding, Bath, Bedding, Furniture, Home Décor, Kitchen & Dining, Lighting, Patio, Lawn & Garden, Storage & Organization), Beauty & Personal Care, Pet Supply, Party Supplies, Stationery, Accessories, Baby, Sporting Goods, Toys & Games, Apparels, and Shoes. Plus Amazon is working to open up even more categories in the upcoming months.

You can also find handmade items through friends/relatives/co-workers, at church bazaar sales, One of a Kind shows, craft shows, Farmers’ Markets, Etsy, festivals, trade shows, consignment shops, shopping parties and a number of online venues.

I happen to enjoy handmade items because they are unique, they are usually made with passion and love, they can spark a conversation and they support individuals like myself and many of the people I know.
