Meet our Newest Common Good Partner: The Craft and Hobby Association

We are excited to announce The Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) is partnering with ArtFire as the Common Good Partner for supply sellers. If you’re unfamiliar with the CHA, they are business-to-business trade association that provides benefits and resources to suppliers and artisans. They offering a special discounted rate for ArtFire artisans looking to join the CHA. When an ArtFire member signs up for a yearly membership before August 31st, they’ll get a few months free by receiving membership for the rest of 2010 and all of 2011. We’ll be officially announcing this partnership next week, so stay tuned for further updates.

Having Trouble Uploading Photos When Listing? Check out our new Javascript-Only Uploader!

While overall most users have had little trouble with our flash/javascript image uploader on the listing page, there have been a few members that have reported trouble with this uploader due to their flash player. If you are one of those users, you can try out the new Javascript-only uploader, which should alleviate any issues with the uploading photos for listings. Both options are available on the item listing page. While the original Flash/JavaScript uploader is still selected by default, you can now choose the JavaScript-only option by clicking a button at the top of the page.

Why You Should List in Multiple Quantities

If you’re a Pro member on ArtFire, you have the option to list multiple quantities of an item in one listing. While many of our supply sellers take full advantage of this feature, many handmade sellers do not. If you make one-of-a-kind products you can’t very well list multiple quantities, but if you make something that you can and often reproduce, listing in multiple quantities has its perks! To help inform sellers of these points, we’ve posted the Top Four Benefits to Listing Multiple Quantities in the Chatterbox forums. Check it out and learn why you should be using this feature whenever possible!

Google’s May Day Update

Early in May, Google made some changes to their search algorithms known as the “May Day” update. This update affected many sites, including ArtFire. To address this update, we’re asking sellers to pay some additional attention to their listing pages to gain back rank in Google. By providing additional information to your items, you can avoid experiencing the negative side effects of this update. Learn more here.
