US & International Shipping, How do I figure it out?

Ok guys, I know it can be a pain to send international but once you get a hold of it you will be find. Just wanted to post a link that always, but ALWAYS helped me, the zone and price chart from check out the linkable preview below.

So basically what it is, is that USPS categorizes countries by zones and the chart gives you the pricing by zone and weight. How do you know what zone you are sending to? easy, it provides you with a list of all countries and zones. I personally figured out which zones where the most expensive and basically based by prices from there. For instance if you check the list, you will notice that Australia is one of the most expensive place to ship no matter the size or weight. This I used as a standard and went from there. I really thin this chart helped me in many ways, hope it does for you guys! :D Oh, I posted the link right below the pictures just in case the pictures are not taking you to the link.

The other night I was browsing around the Etsy forums and found out that the Ecrater has been working for many Etsy pips. check my shop so that you have an idea of the site, Vidals You can find the forum post at, Etsy. I knew about this site but was never sure what it exactly did. Anyways so here it goes, apparently you can set up a shop there with all your listings for FREE and all it does is that it features all kind of products, handmade and commercial and it makes your products for relevant and visible to the Google Search. There is traffic- 1.7m and growing. They're bigger than ArtFire and Fineartamerica. Up to what I know, there is no limit on the listings and I guess it does works to get more traffic to your shop.

I finally tried it and created my fabrics shop, haven't had any sales from there, but I must say that I did get many views right away. In my opinion, any thing that brings me more traffic to my Etsy shop works for me, plus it doesn't charge me anything. Just wanted to let you guys know about this site.

Comments are more than welcome, would love to hear your thoughts! :D

I feel that the new feature of Sales Stats has given me a great overview of the monthly and weekly sales and gives me a view of how my sales are going, who else thinks the same? Add your comments below, I will love to see what others think.

Also I wanted to keep everyone updated on the new upcoming awesome shops that just opened in Etsy. Many people are getting to know more about new ways to recycle and help our environment, and sell there creations online. I just found a couple of shops that I thought were really interesting and creative. For instance, LRLCreations makes beautiful rings out of unusual materials and many other interesting new upcoming items to come! I also found this new shop called EatGreen who also works with recyclable materials, like recycled crochet hats and really cool plastic recycled bag hearted shaped keychains. It makes me really glad every time I hear people making amazing stuff with our own resources that we use on a daily basis.
