Start Selling on Etsy

Today we started selling on Etsy. Yay!

Etsy is a website providing online shops to sellers who sell hand made items, art and craft and supplies. As we have lots of stickers etc., we decided to try it out and start selling our stickers there. They are supplies for making art and craft so they are suitable to sell there.

Here is a showcase of our items there:

50th order in our shop

Another big milestone in our business history: We got 50 orders in our kawaii shop. It’s worth being patient and investing the time. The 50th order went to Niort in France. Next milestone we are looking forward to: 100 orders.

30th order received

Today we received our 30th order in our kawaii shop. Really cool. The order came from a German in Berlin. The 10th order we got on 9.6.2008. Coming up next: 50 orders ๐Ÿ™‚ **YAY**

All products online

It took a while to upload all our new products but finally all our products are online. It is so much work until they are finally online. Here is an idea of what we have to do:

1. Check quantity
2. Take photos
3. Put them in our Database
4. Write German descriptions and measure items
5. Upload Products to Shop
6. Write English descriptions
7. Finished

Server Move

Our online shop is getting more traffic and we overload our current capacities. Therefore, we decided to move to a new server at our server provider in Germany. There are less websites on this new server, that means less traffic and higher capacities for us. I guess this server should be strong enough for the coming months.

Project Taking Photos Finished

Today we finished our project taking photos of all our new products. YAY! I am very happy with the result. Our products look really good like that, don’t you agree?

First 10 Orders in our Shop

YAY, we got our first 10 orders in our new online kawaii shop! It took a while since we opened on 23.3.2008 but we have to be patient with our new baby. The shipment went to Marseille in France. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for the future. Let’s see when we can pronounce the first 30 orders.

3rd order in our shop

And here comes the 3rd order in our online shop. This time a lovely lady from the UK ordered some items in our eBay-shop. I offered her free shipping if she orders in our online shop instead. So she did ๐Ÿ˜‰ She called me later because she had some questions about our payment terms. I helped her to pay and the items will be shipped tomorrow. One more happy customer ๐Ÿ˜‰

2nd order

Wow, today we received already our 2nd order from our new online shop. Another lady from Germany bought our Tenshi Neko bags. They are our top sellers on eBay as well. Keep ordering people and you will make me happy ๐Ÿ˜‰

1st order in our onlineshop

YES, today we received our first order in our onlineshop modes4u. The lady is from Germany and bought 4 items at once to make sure that she gets the free shipping. We offer free shipping for orders above 60 Euro. I am sure this idea will work very fine with my customers as they usually order more than one item.
