- We ONLY answer questions related to Etsy shops. (No treasuries, blogs, off site shops, facebook accounts, etc.)

- Anyone is welcome to comment or give their opinions or advice in the Critique forum. The "SASsy Mentors" will identify themselves in the forum comments as a mentor.

- For all team members, please make sure your comments are constructive and kind. If we see any comments that are rude, negative or mean spirited, you may be removed from the forum.

- No critique games (ie., "critique the person above you" or "Ill critique you if you critique me"). These thread will be closed.

- If you need to talk about a specific transaction or have a question that might be sensitive or not appropriate for discussion in a public forum (ie customer dispute), please contact a mentor by private convo:

You can also read through our "Shop Critique Check List" on our blog to see if you can troubleshoot your shop problems yourself.

I do Etsy stuff for hobby and enjoy feedback, not looking for profit with most of the stuff, just money for materials. But maybe too low prices scare away?

Hi Annika

One of the two areas that we don't comment on is pricing. The premise being that only you know the costs involved for materials, time, overheads etc and your profit margin and so on.

There is an argument that too cheap works two ways. It encourages the get something on the cheap buyers and they do exist. It can put people off that too cheap does mean cheap and cheerful and the quality might not be very good. Price to cover your worth at the very least.
