3 BIG Etsy Changes Including Seller Purchase Protection!

Uncategorized Jun 14, 2022

More Etsy changes are here!

ALL online platforms are constantly changing and will always be changing.  It's important to keep this in mind when selling because if you don't like change, you won't like selling online!

Can POD Shops Make Money On Etsy? Pros & Cons

Uncategorized Jun 07, 2022

I get asked a bunch if POD shops can actually make money on Etsy...

My answer is yes and no.  Just like any business, there is no guarantee.  Some shops make a lot of money and some make no money.  Much of a POD shop's success comes down to the owner.  There are a lot of variables that help promote success or failure.  

Today I want to break down some pros and cons of starting a POD business so you can decide if this model is right for you.  After that, much of your success will come from how you set-up and run your POD business.  I do believe anyone can run a successful POD business, but it won't come easy or fast.  

Etsy sellers know how important reviews are to their success.  I want to help you get more 5 Star reviews with my easy to follow review formula.  Get it here:
