Having successfully sold my creations on my own website, Etsy, Folksy and Dawanda for quite a few years, I decided to try my luck on another similar site - Wow Thank You.
Based in the UK, the site was launched in March 2010 by Tracey Kifford and a friend but is now solely run by Tracey. The aim of the site is to support and promote small, UK based art and craft businesses. Having seen the name Wow Thank You pop up regularly in magazines over the last couple of years, I believe that is certainly being done very well. With a background in journalism, I am sure Tracey certainly has the knowledge to not only market the site but also the members in the media.
The one off joining fee for the site is usually £40 but with promotion at the moment, I only had to pay £20. With no listing fees to pay, regardless of how many items I list on the site, joining didn't really seem much of a gamble. When I make a sale (fingers crossed) I will have to pay a seller's commission of 10% which again seems very reasonable and is certainly in line with other websites.
Even setting up my Wow Thank You store was easy. I had to fill in a form with all of my business details and the Wow Thank You team did the rest. As soon as I received my log in details, all of my information we already filled in for me, so all I needed to do was start listing my products. With a very useful duplicate option, I could very quickly list all my door stops, just changing titles, some of the description and the photos. The remaining details such as postage costs etc we all copied from the previous listing.
