Etsy is the Uber or Shopify of arts and crafts on the internet, sort of. As with all internet platforms, there are strong first mover and network advantages for those that are able to catch the wave. Etsy seems to have done that for its particular field.

eBay Uses Augmented Reality To Help You Pick Packaging
It can be a pain to sell your gear on eBay for many reasons, not the least of which is packaging. How do you know a box will be large enough without having it on hand? eBay can help: it just launched a previously teased, ARCore-based augmented reality feature for Android that helps you choose a shipping box for US deliveries.

9 Prefilled Easter Baskets That Will Save You So Much Time — All From Amazon
Don’t get behind on your holiday shopping this year! Pick up your Easter baskets early so you don’t need to scramble for gifts last minute. We looked to Amazon because the site has so much to offer, including prefilled baskets that your little ones will love. You won’t need to spend your time stressing over store shopping, either, because it’s all delivered right to your door. From Disney-themed picks to candy-filled choices, shop our favorites.
