Who Sells On Etsy

Do any of you sell your tshirts on Etsy. I have ran into some complications and I need to know if this is something all of you have encountered and what to do about it.

I am losing sales (and so is TSG) because of the drab pictures. All my visitors want to see the shirt on an actual model. I have looked into tshirt models to do mock ups, but now I am told that is against Etsy rules (guidelines - no mock ups)) and My Store can get closed down if I do that. Even though the pictures from TSG are actually mock ups, I can get away with it (so far) because they actually come from the fulfillment comapny. Has anyone else had this problem, and what did you do about it?

Also, is the 13% HST Canadian tax already set up with the Etsy app? Or, do I pay that on my end with an order from Canada?

I sell shirts on Etsy with 3 different stores. All my art sells. Some of my art is just on standard
Tgang mocks and some is on models. Of course the model art sells better but we get more complaints
that the shirt done look like the model
Trust me Tgang knows what they are doing.
If you dont have sales on Etsy than you dont know what your doing.
