Sell Your Patterns Online for Residual Income
Work at Home Series
Do you have patterns that you have written just sitting there with your craft supplies or hidden in notebooks? Are you interested in selling those patterns to others so they can make your fabulous creations? Well, it’s very easy to sell those patterns online these days. Here are a few sites that will sell your digital pattern files:
Craftsy – Sells all types of patterns and tutorials including knitting, sewing, crochet and cake decorating.
Ravelry – Sells knitting and crochet patterns.
Etsy – Sells any type of craft pattern or tutorial.
I personally sell all of Poochie Baby’s patterns using all three of these services. Once the pattern is written, formatted and styled correctly, it is uploaded to the site. Each store handles the sale and provides the buyer with a download link or page. This means, once I put a pattern on the site, I don’t have to worry about sending out each pattern as it is sold.
Requirements for selling online:
PayPal – Every seller does have to have a PayPal account. This is how you get paid. It is very easy to set up an account and many people can also get a debit card that is linked to the account. Most of my business expenses are handled through this account, which makes things easier at tax time. PayPal also gives you the ability to sign up for PayPal Here. This service allows your buyers to pay in person when you swipe their credit card….. I love PayPal!
PDF Files – All online patterns are currently in PDF format.
Selling online may seem very confusing…. but it really is simple once you get the hang of it. It is a great way to make some residual income. Once the pattern is finished and placed online for sale, the online stores do the rest of the work for you! You just can’t beat that!
Good luck with your online sales!
