A few weeks ago, I opened a Big Cartel shop with a few items just to test it out. I have been thinking of switching my shop from Etsy to Big Cartel for a little while now. Etsy has been really good to me but when I have a big month like I did in September, the Etsy bill is not so nice. At the same time, I feel like Etsy has helped drive a lot of traffic to my shop where I don't think Big Cartel would. I love the great sense of community that exists on Etsy but if I can save $100+ on bills a month, a paid subscription service sounds a lot better to me. I just don't know how to make that transition exactly and keep people coming since everywhere I have been written up and linked from is to my current shop. Have you had any experience with this? Words of advice? Other sites I should maybe consider?
