Etsy Sales Location Map

I recently found this great Etsy app, Etsy Sales Map, that generates a map of where all my Etsy sales have delivered.

I’ve sent goods to 48 states and the following 6 countries: Australia (2), Canada (6), Germany (1), The Netherlands (1), United Kingdom (3), United States (861) as of 11/21/2014.

You can sign up and get a free map for a week. It will load most of your sales right off but if you have hundreds of sales the full upload will need to happen overnight, so you may need to wait 24 hours for an accurate map. If you want access after the first week you’ll need to pay $5 per year, a small price if you like the visual of seeing where your creations have traveled.

To get your items seen by potential buyers you’ll need to hashtag it correctly. There’s a limit of 30 hashtags for an instagram post, but you also don’t want to appear hashtag crazy so choose wisely.

Here’s some lists of hashtags to copy for posting your items to Instagram

Etsy Anywhere

I can now sell my Etsy products in person anywhere through Etsy.

They recently announced their own credit card reader and today mine arrived. It comes in a neat little MDF carrying case that doubles as a table sign for events.
