Why should I get Big Cartel if I already have an Etsy Shop?

Filed in About Big Cartel and Aarcade

If you are selling on Etsy, starting your own Big Cartel shop is the perfect way to take your business to the next level. Like moving a business from the markets to a dedicated street-front shop, Big Cartel provides you with your very own shop space to brand and style the way you want.

With a Big Cartel shop:

  • You have your own shop space to drive visitors to, without losing their focus to a shared community.
  • You have complete control over the branding of your shop; strengthening your business identity.
  • Stronger built-in SEO provides a better opportunity for increasing your web presence.
  • You can style your pages and present your products and services the way you want; improving the uniqueness and impact of your online shop.
  • Your shop is not restricted by community regulations and strict product category guidelines; you define what you sell and the direction of your business.
  • Your customer’s checkout experience is secure and efficient. There is no membership sign up or other requirements that hinder the process or increase the chances of abandoned carts.
  • Your shop sales are private and your customer interaction is direct. You control the sales and feedback information that you share with the general public.
  • Big Cartel accounts are either free or a fixed low cost per month; there are no transaction fees which means your sales can grow while your shop costs remain the same.
  • The industry’s easiest to use admin interface means setting up and maintaining your own shop requires minimal time and effort.
