Saturday May 30 1pm.  Selling on Etsy Class with Jenna Scifres. The cost of the class is $20.00

Learn how to start an Etsy store. Jenna will give you all the basic knowledge you need to list your items and start selling your products, just as she has done. This is practical and technical information that you need to succeed. Bring your laptop or tablet if you have one, but it is not required. Instructional handouts will be provided. You can sell any vintage or handmade items on Etsy – this is not just a class for jewelry sellers!

***To get the most out of this class, it is recommended (but not required) to have the following prepared:

  1. Name for your shop
  2. Email address
  3. Credit/debit card info to open the store (Etsy requires this to verify your identity but will not charge you until you open your shop and start listing items)
  4. Bank account information for Etsy to make deposits into your account once you are selling
  5. Paypal account set up
  6. Photo of yourself
  7. Biography about you/your jewelry/your inspiration (just a few sentences or several paragraphs, whatever you feel comfortable with)
  8. Facebook and/or Twitter page
  9. Banner logo (760px by 100px)
  10. Photos of your work (you may have up to 5 photos for each item)
  11. Descriptions of your work (size, colors, textures, materials, techniques to make the piece)
