And The Game Begins: Amazon Handmade vs Etsy

Yesterday Amazon Handmade announced the new categories getting ready to open. And now the game begins with Etsy. This is awesome news as those who have shops on both will be able to see who the giant is. My guess will be Amazon and even though they have higher fees and in August of 2016 a monthly fee, there are more sales to get. Plus, Amazon runs a tight ship and will notify you if you're violating listings, policies, etc., whereas Etsy just hasn't given a crap for a long time and doesn't care about the handmade artisan. Time will tell and it ought to be an interesting holiday season this year.
