The 7 Best Websites to Sell Phone Cases Online

1. Etsy:

With over 7,500,000 sellers around the world in 2021, Etsy comes in at number 1 in our rankings chiefly because sellers of handcrafted phone cases have the highest profit margins and phone cases are a particularly hot item on the platform. Etsy sellers processed over $10 Billion in transactions during 2021, with mobile phone accessories representing one of the larger segments of business for the company. Two things that set Etsy apart from all the other online marketplaces for selling phone cases is the detailed analytics tracking and ability to easily interact & engage with your potential customers. Users on Etsy have the ability to ‘Favorite’ and ‘Follow’ both individual product listings and your store, which qualifies them as warm sales leads. You’re able to get in depth data about specific keywords referring new visitors to your shop and listings, so you know what performs well for you. Most importantly, Etsy is very affordable to get started with listing prices of just $.20/ea and a transaction fee of 3.5% on each sale.

2. Pinterest.com:

Welcome to the new Pinterest, where you can actually buy everything you see right there on the page in just a few clicks. This is a relatively new model for the company, who previously would have you redirect to a third party site in order to check out. By streamlining the process, sellers have an advantage of capitalizing on sales through the platform. Another huge advantage, and why it’s ranked #2 on the list, is because the advertising costs (Cost Per Click and Impression) for a Pinterest ad are much more reasonable compared to it’s competitors. Definitely do not sleep on Pinterest when promoting your online phone cases – just make sure to use trendy photos and video when doing it!

3. Shopify:

Shopify has become the largest e-commerce store for entrepreneurs. Their support, third party apps, and interface makes it easy to set up an online store in a matter of days. Shopify’s total platform sales around the world are an estimated 200 Billion to date, so it’s definitely a place you’ll want to be if you’re a seasoned seller. This is not the first place we’d recommend because it costs money to make money on this platform. You’ll need a loyal fan base of customers finding you other places so that you can drive traffic to your Shopify site. However, once you do have the following, there is no better place to sell because there will be no competition on your own Shopify site.

4. Society6:

Society6 has expanded its categories significantly over the years, but still places an emphasis specifically on phone cases and skins. While you’re not able to sell your own products physically on Society6, it’s designed with artists in mind that can upload their artwork (to be printed on cases and sold directly by Society6 to members). Because there’s so much less effort involved with selling on Society6, and many artists experience great results with their creative & unique patterns, Society6 makes our top list as a marketplace not to ignore. You can expect to profit $3.50/ea on the sale of any phone cases that your artwork gets printed on for sale. This is a great option for those with little time, because orders are processed and shipped on their own – you just collect the check!

5. WIX:

If your set on launching your own website but want something to compare to Shopify, Wix is the proper choice. They have really cornered the market for smaller business owners with less than 300 products. Their prices are more reasonable, and layouts cater to a simpler website. This is a great comparison article between the two companies. Wix has gained market share in recent years as the e-commerce space continues to grow and with over 200 million users, it is definitely a site to consider.

6. Handmade at Amazon:

Amazon released their Handmade brand in 2015, which focuses solely on handcrafted products. This was obviously a reaction to the success of Etsy and while it’s a solid idea, the platform has its flaws for the smaller entrepreneur. Understanding the backend of Amazon can be tricky, especially when setting up SEO, tags, keywords, advertising, etc. We added this to our list because Amazon is the giant of all giants when it comes to online retail, and you’d be remiss not to have a presence here.

While Amazon has by far the largest network of online shoppers so far in this category, you’ll be competing in a race to the bottom on pricing. It’s very important that your case designs be truly unique on Amazon, in order to find customers that are willing to justify the purchase when you’ll be competing directly with Chinese manufacturers selling very plain cases at wholesale prices. Amazon’s only worth your time investment for selling phone cases if you have the ability to stomach retail prices of closer to $10/ea. There’s a good chance of hitting high volumes of orders, but expect to have others move in on your niche if you start doing well. Price is the name of the game on Amazon.

7. eBay:

The quickest and dirtiest of them all. Very few cases for sell on eBay are anything more unique than just simple, single colored silicon or plastic cases. With a hyper focus on low-priced items, there are a large number of international manufacturers taking advantage of direct-to-consumer selling. A high priced phone case on eBay is anything over $7.99, so be aware if you step into this arena that your margins will likely be the lowest of them all. We’d recommend this platform for overstock inventory.
