I haven’t gotten round to making an attempt it, however I need to!

If you will promote in a web based market, your greatest guess is to search out one which focuses on promoting handmade crafts and likewise craft provides. Most of these on-line marketplaces are far and wide, however there’s one particular function that you’ll in all probability need to ensure that of. You’ll need it to have a function to mechanically let your clients obtain the tutorial after they pay for it. When that function shouldn’t be out there you’ll need to e-mail your buyer the PDF file after they buy it. That’s not a handy possibility!

Different plans have a month-to-month payment, however no itemizing charges or transaction charges. One of many cool issues about Zibbet is that you’re additionally given a stand alone web site which you’ll be able to even assign your personal URL to! Sending clients to your personal standalone store website offers an aura of professionalism.
- Meylah – You gained’t discover Meylah in numerous posts that checklist on-line retailers, however I’ve had a Meylah store for years and I prefer it and make a number of gross sales there. My favourite factor about it’s that there are solely transaction charges. So I can preserve my listings in my store indefinitely for no value, and solely pay a small proportion once I promote. With promoting PDF tutorials I don’t have to fret about checking and updating inventory for the shop.
- Craftsy – That is one other good venue as a result of it may possibly get your tutorials in entrance of an viewers that’s already fascinated about crafting! The listings are a bit extra fiddly to fill out, but it surely’s nonetheless value it. Oh, and it’s free!

It’s important to apply to be an teacher and you may then have your downloadable tutorials on the market. They preserve 10% of every transaction. That’s greater than different venues, however hey, the extra individuals who see it the higher, proper? They appear to specialise in polymer clay, fiber, and jewellery, however they’ve a piece for “different” as effectively.
- You Can Make This – This can be a newer on-line hub for purchasing craft tutorials. You do have to use to have the ability to promote, and so they take 50% of the fee. This appears extraordinarily excessive, however once more, it’s one other venue and it’s nonetheless cash. You possibly can at all times improve the price of your tutorial to make it extra worthwhile.
- Kollabora – One other newer website. On this one you may add initiatives you could have made, and purchase and promote PDF tutorials, and share crafting movies as effectively! You do have to use to be a vendor.
