Seller Compares Shoppers on Amazon, eBay, and Etsy

By: Reader

Would you agree with this seller's blunt assessment of the type of shoppers found on Amazon, eBay, and Etsy?

Dear Ina
I have written to you before telling you how much I enjoy your blog/newsletter. I look forward to them as I find your stories very informative and very helpful with my selling on the big sites, Amazon, eBay, Etsy.

I list 20 products I build on Amazon, eBay, and Etsy. My sales on Amazon are approximately $20,000 gross every two weeks. Listing the same products on eBay and Etsy, I get almost Zero! "No Sales". Yes, No Sales!

I find that people who shop eBay are looking for cheap Chinese junk, and the people on Etsy are looking for products to steal and build themselves.

I wonder what is going on.

Kind Regards
Bruce

Etsy & eBay Seller here... no Amazon...
AMAZON is the PROBLEM...
their 'free-free-free' policies...
put people & local biz OUT of biz...

@Bruce, you need to go with what works best.  If Etsy doesn't work, then leave ETSY.  You're paying fees for no sales; right?
If AMZ works then stay with AMZ.  I do well on Ebay, sell a little bit on AMZ.  Since AMZ gates so many items, it's hard to list there.
I don't do anything at Etsy.  I have an account but never sold.
Just don't paint a broad stroke and blame the Chinese....because honestly, I have bought a lot of good stuff from China
