How to Sell Digital Files on Etsy
Selling digital files on Etsy is easy. The process is actually very similar to selling traditional products on eBay. There are a few things you need to do to get started with your own Etsy shop, and then you can start selling digital files on Etsy.
Etsy offers many options for digital files for purchase, so this shouldn’t be too hard. You can sell individual files or you can create an account with Etsy’s passive income opportunity. The latter option will require you to spend more time listing digital files and it will earn you more money. But for the moment we’ll stick with the individual selling options.
Once you have your Etsy account set up, you need to find your product listings. Search under “shop” in the upper left corner of the page and scroll down to where it says ” Etsy shop”. Select ” upload your own product listing” and choose “create product listing”. This should take you to a page where you can upload your product listing. You can upload several items all in one listing, but each item can hold only a maximum of three photos and a small description.
When you upload your product listing to Etsy, you will see a preview pane that allows you to change a few details before the listing goes live. This is useful because it will let you make any last minute changes before you list your files. It will also let you change the price for your items if you think the price is too high. You can always change your mind and resubmit your seller edit after selling digital files on Etsy.
Once you have uploaded your items, it is time to select a method for selling digital files on Etsy. There are two methods that I would recommend: seller edit and Gallery edit. It really depends on what your business needs are and how much work you want to do. I usually recommend that my clients use gallery edit as it is easier to monitor how successful an item is.
One of the biggest problems I have seen when selling digital products on Etsy is that sellers try to cram as many digital products into their listings as possible. This is a big mistake. A lot of sellers upload hundreds of images and sometimes just a few of them. The problem with doing this is that it looks cluttered and unprofessional. People who browse on Etsy want to get a quick glimpse of what you have for sale.
Sellers who use flat lay format for digital files on Etsy will be able to fit more images and include more descriptive words. There are a few downsides to using flat Lay: It takes up a lot of space on your disk and it is harder to edit. If you plan to make a living selling digital products on Etsy, I would suggest uploading a photo gallery because they can give your digital products a professional look.
It is very hard to make money on Etsy if you’re just starting out. One of the easiest ways to make money with digital products is to start with a good product description and quality photo gallery. If you follow these two methods, you will be surprised how quickly you can start making sales. The key to being successful at selling digital files on Etsy is to take action quickly, capture customers with your great product description and keep your gallery updated with high quality photos.
