Hey Everyone

Sales have been going well for my Shapeways shop so far, now I'm starting to think about other options to improve sales even further.
One of the biggest places I can see 3D prints selling well is on a site like Etsy - I know a lot of people who use Shapeways also sell on Etsy

So I'm just looking to hear from people already do this, if you recommend it, suggestions/tips and so on.

My main issue at the moment is dealing with the logistics, since it isnt possible (I believe) to 'hook' up your Etsy sales to Shapeways, so once an order is place the buyer's details are then used for the order at Shapeways - basically missing the middleman (ie me) as sales do direct from Shapeways.
So I guess it would then be a matter of having 'stock' which would involve larger (expensive) orders on my part, this is the part which takes a lot of thinking Smile
Considering testing the waters by focusing on one or two items, and seeing how they go.

But yeh, is the above mentioned technique generally the only way to do it?
Also, are there other sites people generally use for selling?
