OUR VILLAGE – A “NO LISTING FEES / NO COMMISSION DEDUCTED FROM SALES” ALTERNATIVE TO ETSY

OUR VILLAGE – A “NO LISTING FEES / NO COMMISSION DEDUCTED FROM SALES” ALTERNATIVE TO ETSY
By Voice of Our Village 11 months ago 148 Views No comments

Our Village™ (https://www.ourvillage.com/) offers worldwide online Sellers “no listing fees/no commissions deducted from sales” when compared to the online marketplace Etsy. Etsy charges Sellers a listing fee of $0.20 per item and recently increased its 3.5% commission to 5% which is deducted from each Etsy shop owner sale. Plus, they also take a 5% commission on the Seller’s shipping fee to their customer.

Let’s break this down to what Sellers are truly concerned with, the bottom line. For an Etsy seller who currently lists an item for $30 and charges $5 for shipping, they pay $1.25 in listing/commission fees. With this price increase, the same seller will pay $1.95 under the new fee structure - 70 cents more, or an increase of almost 60% in this case. Our Village knows that the bottom line matters. That is why Sellers keep 100% of their sales and are not charge listing fees or commissions. Our Village believe that a low cost, $5 a month fee structure, allows the Sellers to get the most bang for their buck. That’s real value you can take to the bank.

Real example from an Our Village shop owner. “New Depression Guitars by James Floyd” recently sold one of his custom-made guitars for $450.00. If this same item was sold on Etsy, besides charging the $0.20 listing fee, they would have deducted $22.50 commission from the sale plus another 5% commission of the shipping fee.
