congratulations!
PS. You might want to raise your prices... Etsy takes 20 cents commission on each item, plus 6.5% of the order total... so you may lose money on shipping if you sell something for 45 cents.

20 cents per listing (item) PLUS a percentage. Etsy only takes 6.5%, while ebay takes 13.5%.

And you have to pay for their advertising services if you really want to get business. I learned that the hard way...

It looks like if you purchase more than one, it charges double shipping, I have to change the shipping to custom, I'll have to do that when I get home. Sorry!
