    I don't necessarily disagree with this, but I suppose I can see that etsy would be good for building a business, but I believe many people will tell you that switching even your domain name to a new domain name is like rebuilding your business. If you start on etsy, it would be difficult to later move to Shopify if you closed your etsy shop down just willy nilly after making the move. While I don't really know the ins and outs of either business, I know that unless you have some type of newsletter with both of these shops you need to tell people about new products, changes in your business, etc… Once you start at either, I do believe you are stuck at either one, because you don't want to lose that built up business you've already worked so hard to achieve. If you start at etsy, and later switch to shopify, you'd at least want to keep something on etsy to let people know you moved even if you only have one or two products left on etsy.
