I'm about to have a second vintage shop on a brand new site (SecondShoutOut, soft launch is tomorrow!) so we'll see how it goes! Good to hear it's working well for others :)
We offer a service that creates a website that syncs with your Etsy shop listings so there it no need to duplicate your store inventory. You can check us out in the Etsy app gallery: see www.etsy.com/apps/263852207/craftlaunch!

Good luck!
I feel like I read this was against the Terms of Use once upon a time. I don't see it anymore. Maybe it changed, or maybe I just can't find it. Does anyone else remember reading this? Or something like it?
Sara, the rule is about what you can and cannot link to on Etsy, not where you can sell. So, basically it is telling you that you can't link to a website where you sell the same items, or use your Etsy shop primarily to direct buyers to another site where you sell the same items. It does not dictate how many places you can actually sell your items, however. It is about linking.
You can list your items on any website, you just can't link or direct traffic from etsy to another site where you sell the same items. So it's not against the TOU. Many sellers here sell on other venues, there are few handmade venues out there (and non handmade of course)

I have my items on one or two sites but I don't pay as much attention to them, so when sales come in here and there it's a pleasant surprise. Wouldn't have sales at all on other sites if I didn't try, eh? but I can make multiples of my items so double selling isn't an issue.
I list the same items ONLY if I have the supplies to duplicate an item. Otherwise I list totally different items in my Zibbet shop and on Etsy
