Zibbet Q&A: What can I sell on Zibbet?
Handmade is for items that are made by you. This is our largest category and contains a wide variety of items.
Fine Art is also for items made by you and usually includes paintings, photographs, sculptures etc.
Vintage is for items that are at least 20 years old and unaltered except for minor repairs and cleaning. ‘Upcycled’ items made from Vintage items should be listed as Handmade.
Supplies is for craft supplies-items that can be used to make other items that can be sold on Zibbet.
The words ‘handmade’ and ‘vintage’ can only be used to describe items that can be listed in those categories respectively. Some items can be listed in more than one category based on what they are. However, you must choose one main category for each item.
Services are in general not permissible to be sold on Zibbet. The only services that are acceptable are those that directly help a seller with their Zibbet shop (i.e. shop design, writing item descriptions, proofreading, optimizing listings for search engines etc) and also design related services, since a creative product is produced at the end of it.
Stones and such, which can be made into jewelry and other items that are eligible to be sold on Zibbet can be sold through the Supplies category. However, they can’t be sold as spells or any thing that can be construed as a service. They also cannot be sold as supplies used for rituals of any kind. Zibbet’s definition of “supplies” is items that can be used to make other items that can be sold on Zibbet.
Original printed copies of craft and vintage books can be sold on Zibbet. However, scanning and/or photocopying copyrighted material and offering it for sale violates copyright laws and isn’t acceptable. For more information on copyright, please visit http://www.copyright.gov/ and/or consult an intellectual property expert.
Best wishes for much success on Zibbet!
