Etsy is a platform that is focused on selling handmade items and craft supplies. They do, however, also provide shop owners with the possibility to sell digital items.
Therefore they offer a great opportunity to monetize your photos and illustrations by selling them as printables.

If you only want to sell printed items using your photos, then that is also an option of course.

To open a shop you will need to register with your email address. Once the registration is complete you can open a shop by following the ‘sell on Etsy’ links.

Name and customize your shop, set up the shop policies, complete the shop information, and upload your photos.
Don’t forget to fill the payment options and keep in mind that Etsy charges $0.20 to list an item and ask 5% of the price as a fee for each sale.

As for selling photography on Etsy, versus selling on stock photography sites, the main difference is that you will have to do all customer service yourself.  If you want to spend your time mostly on photography itself then stock photography sites might be more suitable for you.

The advantage of Etsy is that you are your own reviewer and nobody will decline your upload.

Etsy offers a lot of payment options. Payments are made directly to you,

Hi there!

My name is Jip, and I created the Side Gig Longlist to learn all I can about blogging and making money online.
Having decades of experience in information technology, I decided to explore all the non-technical aspects of blogging, marketing, and promoting.
I also happen to like sharing the things I know and learn with others.
This blog is my platform to experiment, learn, and share.
