Goodsmiths rolls out paid plans, promoted items

West Des Moines March 20, 2013 by Danny Schreiber

Ecommerce startup Goodsmiths today introduced paid plans. When the "marketplace for makers" launched last April, co-founder Levi Rosol said one of the site's advantages over its better-known competitor, Etsy, was its pricing structure—it didn't charge a listing fee and it took a smaller percentage. Now less than a month away from its first birthday, it's made changes to both. To list more than 25 items on Goodsmiths, sellers must now pay $5 per month. With the new paid plans, however, come credits to promote items to appear at the top of category pages. — Source: Goodsmiths
