How To Trade On Etsy

This is how it works:
  • contact the person you would like to trade with to ask if they want to trade with you (helps if you already know that there is a mutual appreciation of each others work)
  • decide what you would like from that person and find out what they would like from you
  • the value of your item(s) and their item(s) needs to match - or near enough match
  • reserve the items they would like in your esty shop - by putting a note in the description/header saying something like 'reserved - only purchase if your name is panyizsuzsi'. Your trade partner does the same in their shop.
  • to make sure etsy get the fees, you and your trade partner need to purchase via the etsy shopping cart (we all like esty and we want them to get their fees - it's bad practice if you don't do this)
  • you do not need to make an actual payment via the company that handles payments
  • trade completed - send off the goods as you would with any order via etsy
  • leave feedback for your trade partner.
I hope this all makes sense to everyone who hasn't traded before, and for those who have traded via etsy - did I get this right?
