Do You Zibbet Your Jewelry?

By June 27, 2009

Follow me on:

I think I remember hearing about this site awhile ago, but when one of my tweeps twittered about it, I finally decided to go take a look. Zibbet is an on-line shopping venue for anyone interested in selling handmade items, supplies, vintage pieces, or fine art. Rather than charge per item listed like Ebay and Etsy or a flat-rate after 10 items like Artfire, they charge you after you make a sale. The cost is 7.5% of the sale, not including shipping charges, so you would need to figure that into the cost of selling each item of course.

From what I can tell, this site looks fairly new. I clicked around at various shops and most don't have a huge number of items listed, which suggests there aren't any super established sellers on her yet. For anyone looking to expand or start on-line jewelry sales (or other crafts) for no start up costs at all, not even to list, this might be worth checking out.

What does everyone else thing about the dark green they use, and the site’s styling in general?

The green kind of bothers me (too dark?), and the overall styling just doesn’t feel as pro as Etsy. I’m hoping they change it up a little.

Hi Tammy,

Thanks so much for taking the time to write about Zibbet! There’s HUGE changes in the works for Zibbet so stay tuned. If you register as a seller you’ll be kept ‘in-the-loop’ through periodic emails that we send out. One of the changes Chris, is the ability to fully customize your shop, including changing the colors!

If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me personally by emailing jonathan@zibbet.com

Thanks again Tammy!

Just an update since this was posted years ago… Zibbet has now changed their fee model. There are now NO fees to list up to 50 items. No fees, ever. Not at all.

Their money module comes from “premium” accounts now… it’s amazing! I got the premium account because it was such a great deal, but even a non-premium seller does very well with their shops for FREE!
