  • I love Etsy but .....


    By Llcc70
    I shop Etsy all the time so I am a buyer and a seller! There are some things I love and some things not so much ... I miss the old Etsy .... ever hear if something isn’t broken do not try and fix it? I miss treasuries and other features about Etsy that are no longer! Etsy has become more commercialized such as on tv commercials, I’ve seen it advertised online as a “work from home job” I was a lil shocked to say the least.... but when you buy on Etsy be sure that you know which SHOP you’re in! Etsy is the MALL .... WE ARE THE SHOPS IN THE MALL! 🛍The artists and artist suppliers are the back bone of the industry! However Etsy is the easiest for me since I’ve been on for so long! With more than one shop.... too much change in such a short amount of time can really throw some of us off! I miss the different comfort of an “Etsy family” rather than HUGE E-COMMERCE, still Etsy is my go to for a lot of things! I love supporting small business and the artists and after all Etsy gives us the PLATFORM to put our shops we work hard in every day to make all of your shopping full of endless fun! You can find lots and lots of OOAK here! Thanks to the sellers and their shops ... thanks Etsy for giving us a place to sell our goods but it would be good to be able to get someone on the phone again!
  • Too much nudity


    By togeepainter
    I have been enjoying using this Etsy app to purchase supplies for my art business from small businesses that have supplies available, and I prefer to support small creators. However, recently I have been getting a lot of pictures of frontal nudity and risqué lingerie and other sexual items that I have never searched for or looked at or clicked on. My viewed, searched, and liked items are very tailored to art and craft supplies especially wool, alpaca fiber, handmade watercolour paint, artwork, and booksmithing supplies as well as some pet products. I don’t appreciate having to sift through a sea of penises to find new art supply shops. You are suppressing artists and art suppliers in favor of flooding my feed with inappropriate content that is not at all related to anything that I have searched for or looked at. I have already cleared my recently viewed in order to try and stop this but it only worked for two days. I don’t even want to go on the Etsy front page anymore and am considering leaving Etsy altogether and contacting my shops to purchase outside of your company. This has been happening to other people too. There is no way to tailor my recommended items other than viewing and liking the items that I am actually looking for and yet the peni persist. I am not looking for those. I wouldn’t go to Etsy for that anyway.
  • The worst app ever


    By Zebrooooooo
    This app seriously ruined my life. Etsy doesn’t give a crap about sellers as long as they are making money by pulling in enough buyers. Every time a case is opened against you they ALWAYS choose the side of the buyer and take money from your account without permission. All 3 cases I had against me were not my fault. The first one was a customer being unhappy with a product 3 months after receiving it when my return policy clearly states send me a message within 1 week and mail back within 2 weeks. I refused to accept the item after 3 months and they opened a case and I didn’t give them a refund and Etsy took the money straight out of my account. The second time was a customer demanding a refund saying they never received their item when their tracking number clearly stated that it had been delivered weeks ago, and Etsy once again took money from me without my permission. They also don’t take into account that items cannot be shipped on Sunday so customers get mad when their item is shipped a day late. Now they have a new policy where if you don’t offer free shipping your items will not pop up at the top of the list for customers, so you are basically forced into free shipping and lose customers by increasing your prices for no reason. Etsy is a waste of time and money and I’m upset I ever wasted putting energy into it.
  • In Stock doesn’t mean in stock!


    By Bc2socal
    The majority of items listed on Etsy aren’t actually ready to ship even when it says in stock. It means they might have the materials to make it but there is a long ‘processing’ time. Set your expectations low for delivery time and don’t buy anything that needs to be delivered for a holiday or gift.. Likely you will disappointed.. this isn’t just for personalized items. Sellers like to have hundreds of listings but can’t and won’t try to have them in stock and just assume you understand they still have to make another version of the item pictured. Also Etsy is rampant with copyright infringement and stealing of intellectual property. The absolute opposite of supporting a creative! I joined an Etsy Sellers group and it’s basically thousands of Etsy sellers FB group which i found was mostly making fun of people that had expectations of receiving an ‘in stock’ item that doesn’t arrive for a month or so. And telling people to ‘mind their own business’ regarding copyright infringement because ‘90% of products on Etsy are copied from the original artist’.. I went from dedicated Etsy buyer, proactively encouraging friends to shop small business, dipping my toes into selling some of my own handmade items, legitimately in stock items, trying to educate myself with other Etsy buyers, to vowing to never shop Etsy again.
  • My Favorite App.....EVER.


    By RiotGirl95
    I use Etsy for 90% of my gifts I give for birthdays, Christmas and any other gift giving holiday. As long as you do your research about a shop (have a look at their reviews see what people say, how long have they been a seller, how many things have they sold, picture quality etc.) to see that they are a quality seller you should have no problems. You can find a vast array of things from allover the world (though be weary of things from the China region, a lot of those items are cheap and poorly made). Lots of beauty sellers include free samples of their other products when you buy something, which is amazing. (Who doesn't love free stuff to try) And I could fill a box of thank you cards, hand written notes and messages from sellers thanking me for my order. It makes it feel like you ordered from your neighbor down the street not someone six states away or half way across the world. I have bought nearly a hundred things from different shops if not more and will continue to do so because where else can you find amazing cool things made/sold by equally amazing people.
  • Extremely unhappy


    By ehitsalight
    I am extremely unhappy I have been dealing with the supplier LoveJilty, since I’ve paid for my items I haven’t received any information regarding why my payment has not gone through on THERE part. I was supposed to receive a bra top and a garter bottom and was told that my items was marked as unpaid because of being shipped internationally and that additional charges may apply that I was okay with what I’m not Okay with is the fact that I got a message from LoveJilty saying they need me to pay again for what I already bought and have a receipt for ! Which is 85$ extra! I have tried to open a case but cannot because it says that my items will not be shipped until July 12 which is a lie because I will not be receiving my items because they have told me I need to pay more money. They also sent me a one additional message saying that they would check the bank as to why my payment didn’t go through and they never got back with me I want a refund and have not heard back and I am extremely disappointed and unsatisfied
  • No Accountability


    By Tritones
    I really loved Etsy because of all the creative variety of hand-crafted products. However, the past few orders I have placed have been massively overdue. I bought a Christmas gift for a friend in early December; it had an ETA if 2-3 weeks yet it JUST arrived mid February. There needs to be some sort of system of accountability that penalizes business owners if they take longer than the projected dates posted on their page - some sort of incentive for them to make sure they meet their own deadlines. Perhaps refunding a percentage of the cost of the item back to the buyer after a certain amount of time? If you claim that your products ship within two to three weeks, and it takes two MONTHS on more than one separate occasion, it is a huge deterrent to me from wanting to buy anything else from here again. I understand life happens, and some things are out of their control; I’m completely okay if it’s a few days (or even a week) past when they said I would get it, as long as they keep me updated. But that rarely happens. Most of the time I just get no response until I finally open a claim, which I really don’t like doing. Please develop a better system of accountability to make it less frustrating for your consumers! Thank you!
  • I got scammed and there is nothing anybody can do


    By Maryl p
    I downloaded Etsy super excited to see what I could find and how to improve my cosplays and all. I take partial blame for not doing more research before I committed. I found a listing on Etsy from “Cosplay Dream Shop” that promoted cheap commissions and I though I’d give it a whirl. Set up a payment system and I sent my payment through PayPal (what the seller told me to do) and what turned to months of messages of “when will it arrive?” to “I need my money back because you violated our agreement.” Commissioner stopped replying on the Etsy chat and I found her on Facebook and started messaging her there and she said she’d get my cosplay to me. I contacted Etsy to see what could be done and they said to call PayPal since that’s where the transaction happed so I called PayPal and they told me to call my bank because there was utterly nothing they could do. I call my bank and they inform me they also can’t do anything because the transaction was over 150 days or something and the only thing I can do is continue to message the seller on Etsy. It has been an utter nightmare and I’m angry and upset that no one can do anything. So in other words, Etsy is a platform for easy scams and trickery to occur. What makes me even more mad is that her shop still exists on Etsy! Thanks Etsy, for nothing.
  • Fabric pricing


    By Dkwatkins
    The only thing I don’t like on Etsy is having to guess the price of fabric. It is usually by the yard but on Etsy you sometimes have to go all the way into your cart before finding the price is not for a yard but it is for a fat quarter, an 1/8th, or 3/8 yard, 1 yard etc. It makes it very hard to compare fabrics. Normally it would be no big deal but when a fabric is needed now it gets very annoying to open an ad just to find out it still doesn’t specify how much you are getting for $3.40. After reading the entire ad you still don’t have an indication. So now you go to the cart to see what you bought for 3 @ $3.40. One would expect about $12 with tax but instead it said $38 and that didn’t include shipping. I did this kind of searching for 6 hours yesterday between 2 sites and left everything at your site except for one small purchase. I don’t have a problem paying what something is worth but it seems like a trick. It is not needed unless your goal is to annoy. Just price it the real price. Thanks, Donna Watkins
  • Beautiful earrings!


    By Kittykat88k
    These earrings are so gorgeous! I ordered them for a group of my friends to help us remember a dear friend of ours who died suddenly on Christmas Day. I believe the shape of these and the leather help tell the story of our dear friend. The leather is soft and supple yet strong and durable. Leather is beautiful and it ages even more beautifully. The loop of the earrings represents the community that our dear friend was so gifted at forming and that she is safely in her Heavenly Father’s arms...she was formed by Him in her mother’s womb and she returned to Him and is also reunited with her mother. These earrings help tell a story and the mother and daughter who make these also share in this deep love of our Heavenly Father. Their compassion and love as I communicated with them about purchasing these was so tender. I am grateful to have a little tangible symbol to gift to my precious community (that was brought together years ago by my precious friend). I am grateful that a mother and daughter team who have their own powerful story of grace can be a part of this! Thanks Aly and Lyv!
