If you’re a new artist trying to sell reborns online, there are several places to start from.
A great thing about reborn baby dolls is that you don’t have to have a site of your own; there are lots of places where you can sell your reborn doll without going through all these complicated procedures. The only requirement is the quality. You need to be able to create products that will be sold.
In order to help you out, we’ve made a list of several sites where you can sell your realistic baby dolls. Check it out!
Craigslist was created by an entrepreneur called Craig Newmark and since its inception in 1995, it is regarded as one of the best places to sell stuff. The site offers free local ads which are ideal for local artists who would love to sell their reborn baby doll to someone in the vicinity. This way you’re able to eliminate shipping costs which are often a big burden for small artists.
You can create a listing for free which is another special feature of this website. All you have to do is sign up for an account and start selling your dolls. Make sure to add nice descriptions and couple of photos as well. When selling an item, please make sure to set a higher price than you would actually sell for. Given that you’re dealing directly with customers, there will likely be some negotiating.
Even though Craigslist is free and great for doing local business, people usually buy dolls and toys through bigger sites. Craigslist doesn’t have the same reach and there are bigger, more dominant online shops out there. Still, given that you can make a listing for free, you should at least consider this platform.
Amazon is a company that needs no introduction. If you wish to sell your soft silicone vinyl dolls, this is the right place to start. Like most big sites, it has a full list of guidelines that you need to follow if you wish to sell your items there. You need to find a right price that you’re willing to offer them for. You also need to place the number of products if you’ve made more than one lifelike doll.
According to their terms and policy, they take between 8 to 10% for their service. Still, due to their enormous reach, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to sell your babies in a short amount of time.
eBay is right there with Amazon.com. Both sites are pretty amazing in terms of their reach. It is the biggest auction site with lots of users. When you post a newborn through this site you can rest assured that thousands of people will view the product. Furthermore, people who buy these beautiful dolls usually search them through this website.
The next thing you need to keep in mind is that eBay is more expansive than Craigslist. While there are certain cases where you can list items for free (when there are special events) in most situations you will have to pay some percentage of profit. You might feel that this is unfair but given the reach and speed of sale, it is more than worth it.
Fan conferences and similar events are another good opportunity to sell your dolls. One of the best features of these events is that, if you have good skills, you can persuade a person to buy your items. It allows you to create a real contact with a consumer thus increasing the odds of selling a reborn. Given that you can touch a product with your hand it is much better for building trust. You also don’t have to explain anything about doll’s eyes, hair, limbs or body as a person can see everything.
