Etsy Terms

(1/2) > >>

Uncle Pete:
Am I killing sales by having this in my terms? Seems like others are undercutting my prices for downloads of digital products, but also they have smaller versions, less quality and more in a pack. Maybe I should close and stop wasting time? But here's the question part:

Because of the unique version, adaptation and editing this image is not available for making products or resale by anyone except myself. 2020 If you want to make postcards for personal use, collages, scrap book, home projects... please enjoy.

No returns on digital downloads, sorry.

I assumed the no returns is standard for digital downloads, but restrictions on products for resale?

Etsy sales are slow anyway, why give up such an important term, I doubt it really affects your sales?

No Sales!

I was thinking maybe the re-use was causing that? The prices I have are reasonable and more than I get at AS or SS most of the time, but I also don't think allowing someone to re-use for a product that they resell is what I want. If people want to make 100 Christmas Cards, just making that up, I'm fine, but if they want to make cards to sell to others, what's the use?

Etsy is reasonable and people who have nice craft products, seem to do well. Mine aren't that. Maybe I'm in the wrong place?

I'd say a majority of Etsy buyers are people who don't have any design talent, and just want to download stuff to put on shirts to sell, or combine with a quote in a fancy font and resell.

Thanks, which means I'm in the wrong place with the wrong product!  :) Time to shut down. I gave it a try, my mistake.
