I’m not really sure what sort of advise you’re looking for.  Just contact the seller and explain what customization you’re looking for.  

Payment through paypal is what I always use on Etsy.

If they have great feedback, convo the sellers and make sure you get a good feel from them. I’ve had great experiences with Etsy! I only had one problem with some cards that didn’t get delivered, but I got a full refund for them, so I’m not scarred by the experience or anything. Feedback is definitely the key to Etsy though 🙂

ETA – It’s also helpful to the sellers if you can provide as much info as possible in your convo and your zipcode so they can get you a quote on shipping.

@MASPA:I love etsy!  My only advice is to read their policies ahead of time so that you know what they can and can’t do.  My first time ordering I didn’t know that each seller had a page that outlined their policies, etc. and asked some redundant questions and my order was delayed a bit because of it.  Also, see if any of the products you want to buy are made by another seller for a better price.  It may help you get a more competitive rate from your seller.  Have a good one.  🙂

@MASPA: Its actually alot easier than it can feel. I would message the seller, make sure they can customize it the way you want. If so, buy the product and wait for it to arrive! Simple as that! Everything I have purchased from Etsy has been customized so I can promise you, it is much more stressful the first time. But, everything has turned out more than fine. Great actually!

@MASPA: I just drop them a friendly message. Let them know I’m interested in x product, but we’d need a, b, and c customizations, and I was wondering if they’d be able to do that and what the charge and ship date would be for such an item. 

It’s nice because I really like to feel out people by how quickly and respectfully they respond and if they seem to have their stuff in order 🙂
