Mama cloth opinions?😊

So I'm selling mama cloth in my etsy shop, and trying to decide if I want to sell liners in particular individually, or in sets of three or five. How many do you usually buy at once? I'm also offering regular flow MC, and should I mix listings- say, three liners with two regulars? Thanks in advance for any opinions!

Personally, I like creating my own lot. But I hear esty charges per listing, so I understand why they others sell in lots.
Have you considered 2 or 4 piece lots?
That is the size lots I bought.

Thanks! I may do 2 peice sets.. Thankfully the listing fee on etsy isn't big so that wouldn't be too much of a problem.

I don't like the mixed lots, because I don't use liners, but I know others do

Offer a 2 or 4 piece lot but put in your shop description that you offer custom size lots/mixed lots maybe?

I like to pick mine out or do customs. I have never bought a lot because I have yet to find one that meets my needs. I usually buy 2 at a time depending on patterns. Hope that helps! BTW, my favorite size is a 6.5" liner

Just checkout out your shop. Love the curvy style on the 12" pads. Are you going to offer the curvy style in the smaller ones as well?

Thanks I have been thinking about it, but the ones i'm making have been selling really well! I'm always open to custom orders, though, so for a while I think I'll just do different styles through customs, and eventually expand. I am planning on offering a maximum absorbency pad soon though, it'll be a layer each of zorb, bamboo fleece, and possibly flannel. I'm not sure if I should make the size of the pad bigger for it though, any opinions?

Those are really cool pads! Love the hand-dyed velour. As an Etsy shop owner, I like to group smaller items because otherwise the fees start cutting too much into the profits. HOWEVER, it's still good to offer single items for people who just want to sample the wares without making a big financial commitment. So... if it's a choice between selling singles, three-packs, and five-packs, I say do all of the above!

I like the idea of the mixed pad listing; maybe you could have a "Create your own bundle" and let the customer tell you what ratio of pads/liners they want on the bundle? Just throwing ideas out there!
