Etsy Pricing and hair pulling– I’ve been having trouble deciding how much to charge for my pots on Etsy. There was a point when I was charging $30-$35 for tea bowls, and that was when I was less experienced in ceramics. They were selling like hot cakes. Maybe it’s the tea bowl trend, but I feel like I should be doing better on Etsy. (here’s what was selling so quickly)
I don’t want to under sell myself, because my work is tedious, uses expensive materials, and takes a considerable amount of time to finish. Not to mention Etsy fees and the time it takes to create each listing. I’m not trying to justify charging some outrageous amount because after all, pots do pile up. I just don’t know if my prices are too competitive and should be higher, but I don’t want to disappoint the shop viewers I already have by nudging up prices. Pricing my work is difficult because it feels like putting a price on myself. Here’s a link to my Etsy shop– take a look and tell me your opinion on my prices! No wrong answers here, just looking for viewer feedback.
