I used to do very well on ebay (many years back), just recently listed a few items and no views whatsoever.... listings are free (lol there is a reason they are free!) since nothing sells... i did sell one print there and that's it...
Have some items on artfire, but don't attend that shop at all, so nothing there.
Just put my effort into etsy at this point.....

I sell most on ebay. But then I've been there for 5 years and have an established client base. I sell primarily fabrics there along with other craft supplies (scrapbooking). My ebay store is similar to my momentintime.etsy.com shop but I do list a few of my handmade over there. It doesn't do as well as the supplies.

This year 50% etsy 40% ebay 10% other. Ebay is nothing like it once was, up until a year ago I got 90% of my sales there, and yet when things are dead here I find I am scraping up enough pittance sales on ebay to get by (just). Without their free listings though forget it, they are not worth paying for.

I've sold the most on Etsy. I had more than a hundred items listed last Christmas on Artfire on the free account deal and didn't sell a single item. I did well on Ebay with my teapots, but there were lots of collectors on there.
It doesn't hurt to try out different venues. Every seller will have different experiences.
