Why ArtYah Is The New {Site-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named}

ArtYah 

A breath of fresh air for the handmade community

I can't tell you how long people on the site-that-shall-not-be-named (hereafter referred to as "Testy", considering all the tests done that have affected the sellers badly) have been waiting for this, but it looks like it might have finally happened.  A site where Handmade actually means HANDMADE.  No longer trying to weed out mass-produced, or otherwise called outsourced manufacturing of handmade (How did this even make sense again?).


ArtYah is the site that many have been wishing for since "Testy" decided to redefine the meaning of handmade and allowing the "outsource of manufacturing of handmade products" back roughly in 2009-10.  In a quote taken directly from ArtYah's About page:
"Artyah began when we realized that other sites simply did not provide the kind of marketplace many buyers and sellers were looking for. We are good listeners, and we especially heard what you DIDN'T want:
> page after page of manufactured products
> content not appropriate for the whole family
> items illegally exploiting copyrighted or trademarked images 
Instead, we are continuously engaged in creating, maintaining and improving a space that buyers love to visit and that sellers are proud to promote."

One of ArtYah's biggest benefits is the excellent customer service that they provide for the SELLERS!  The owner is literally a phone call away.  Email support is awesome also.  Emails are answered in less than 24 hours on a BAD DAY. Most are actually responded to within 1-2 hours or LESS!

Right now the forums are literally making the statement that this is the site they have been waiting for since "Testy's" slide down the online slope.

Yes, there are still a few minor quirks that are getting worked out, but that is part of growth.  The nice thing is that there is actually transparency of site improvements and/or glitches.  And if a seller has an idea or question of improvements, they can say that they have been heard.  This kind of online experience makes the sellers feel like they are part of building - and in my honest opinion, they are.



Many sellers have stated that they are starting to feel creative again.  They know it will be slow going to build the site to the level of "Testy".  But at least now, they have hope again.
