  1. I ordered my first Handmade at Amazon purchase as a Christmas present this year and the recipient was thrilled! Glad to see another platform for makers.

  2. I like the fact that they remove all fees upon transaction, unlike etsy where you are left with a bill for each month… it really does make that less stressful and easier to use 🙂

  3. I just submitted my application. Im all excited…it says that I will be notified within four weeks! 🙂 Wish me luck!

  4. I am so excited to have been accepted to sell on this platform. I currently sell on Etsy, and it is so saturated, and it is hard to make an impression. I also love how Amazon has to approve you to join. The big sellers on Etsy buy wholesale even though Etsy is meant to be a handmade market. Amazon has the customer base, and I am excited to be a pioneer in this market. Can't wait!

  5. I currently sell on Etsy and I'm excited for another handmade platform. I think Amazon has the potential to do a lot of damage to Etsy in the long run but I also think there's room in the market for sellers to succeed on both platforms (in some cases, on both).

  6. My thought is that it is a HUGE avenue for getting your name out there. If you don't like it, then you can always bail in August 2016, when the monthly fees start. BUT…you will have an entire year of a lot of exposure. I will probably give it a try just for the exposure. If things work well, then the monthly fee won't be too much of an issue. I also have a website.

  7. Saw the email today – I just wrote a blog about it from an Etsy seller's perspective:

    Hope it works well as a new marketplace, but I think they're missing a few key features at this early stage.

  8. Excited to see this.  I bet eBay's in damage-control mode.  It will likely kill little ol' Etsy.  12% fees versus eBay's nearly 15% (when combined with PayPal), and eBay's near-zero competition.  Well done, Amazon.
