wow, if that is actually true, I am working WAY too hard to make this work. I think I need to start selling offline as well.

How do you know where your shop ranks in a category, in terms of sales? Is there an Etsy link somewhere that keeps stats like that?

NeatThings, yes, it's about 50-50. The first two stats of average income from the "average" shops are made up, but are best guesses based on my personal research and experience. I'd love to see what people think of them.

And the stats about the number of active sellers, the top 3 sellers' income, and the top 100 sites all come directly from etsy or from the user's themselves.

TableScapesCompany, there's a couple of places that have stats for number of items sold. Start here and also check out other links from there:

I would really like to believe there more than just a few top sellers that make more than $10,000 and less than $100,000 a year. Where did you get that statistic?
