Selling online?

The internet is an amazing place! In the most recent issue of Crafts Magazine, there is a wonderful plate painted with hedges and birds and insects. If you download an app onto your iPad or iPhone and then take a picture of the plate, the image becomes a living animation on your screen. The way of craft in the future is very exciting indeed!

But what about those who want to sell online? It can be a little bit confusing so I have started to compile a table of the ways people sell online, comparing the ways people set up shop and sell their wares. It is a very simple table in Excel at the moment, and it is intended as a document that people can adapt, use and alter according to what you know or want to know. It is not comprehensive; there is far too much out there for my purposes, but it may be useful as a starting point. I am offering it for free for download here: Selling online comparison table on the understanding that it is a work in progress and may contain some inaccuracies. Please let me know if this is case and I will alter the table.
