I say da journal, payment plans and deals can be done a bit more direct here.
And etsy takes a bit of the money :( that means less for you D:

I'm excited for our 'deal' nemi!
I have $250 for you now! More moolah for you haha :dummy:
I'm hoping to be able to pick out a yote if that's ok ;p
Let me know whats available if you can!
I want to pick out a good one! :la:~:heart:

I agree with feather totally, i think etsy

Honestly, I think Etsy is a fairer system - it means first with money gets to buy the item. Not have everyone and their dog comment first about it, and have to wait to see whether they can actually buy it or not before you get the chance.

Also means you'll have a bit more of a wider audience, there's loads of people on Etsy who'd be willing to buy who arn't on dA.

I agree with this. But... Everyone would be noting on etsy for payment plans. :/ You figure most people want payment plans.... Especially if they're from DA.

However this would make it easy for those rare few who can pay in full up front :nod:

True, but it's easier to say "first pay first serve" on Etsy. On dA, most are kids without jobs so they have no other choice than to do it in Payment plans. On Etsy, most are serious buyers who actually have the money.

The only way I actually got my white yote was when Zhon had her shipping permits and put the coyotes up on Etsy. I was able to buy, whereas if it was through dA, absolutely everyone would have commented before me - and due to fairness, the first person to ask is the first to get it, regardless if they can pay in full or not. Just irks me a lot.

If you're not on the computer 24/7 (Some of us have to work for our money, kids!) then you tend to miss out on all the good stuff, simply because of the "first comment!" rule.

I'd say through a journal here, for 3 reasons...

- Quicker for us to read through and decide what we want without the hassle of going through checkout pages (incase some of us have shitty net)
- Incase some of us can only pay half up front (like you mentioned in your other journal, as long as it's paid off by the end of the month/beginning of June)
- Etsy charges the seller a listing fee, meaning you'd be out a little cash from each sale

I would prefer it to be at my house so I can test drive everything...
Journal would be my second preference.

Etsy items will be listed Individually, while here on DA I will group the items.
