money-craftsDo you have a talent for working with your hands in an artistic fashion? If so, you could earn extra income by displaying your creations at online. Do you quilt?

Religious women want to purchase modest garments. Do you have a talent for wood working? People love old fashioned looking furniture for their homes. Any type of handmade craft can be sold online.

Tip One

Decide what kind of craft you want to create. Is there a particular craft you make which goes over well at family reunions? Do you have family and friends asking for a specific creation? Create this special craft, make a few of them. Then you need to price them. Calculate the cost of the individual materials and add in a labor cost you think fair.

Tip Two

Open yourself a PayPal account. PayPal is the simplest way to do business online. PayPal enables you to accept online payments for your craft items. Sellers must offer safe electronic payments to buyers on eBay, so go ahead and sign up for PayPal…it is free.

Tip Three

When uploading pictures of your craft to websites, try writing a strong title which is critical for helping users find your items. Use descriptive words, key words, or attributes in the title. This is your first contact with users and you need that title to draw them into looking closer at your item.

Tip Four

Most users will skip right past listings on websites with no pictures. Users want to see the product they are buying. The photos you take of your item are essential in grabbing user’s attention. Add one of the best photos of the product to the headline. Take multiple close-up pictures of the item. Some people may not want to do this because the picture might reveal a flaw. However, this is good. Taking real close pictures of any flaws and posting them in the listing will draw consumer trust.

Tip Five

Decide where you want to sell your merchandise. There are many places online to do this, such as eBay.com, Craiglist.com, Etsy.com, Craftmall.com, and consider setting up your own website with shopping cart, so you can display and sell your crafts online.

You will need to promote your craft. You can set up a blog and write a journal about the process of your craft or write about places you find material inexpensively. You can purchase advertisements in trade magazines or consider purchasing advertisements on other websites.


Selling online can be a successful venture for any work at home individual. Knowing how to maximize yourself and your product will draw consumers to your crafts.
