Etsy's Latest: Scam Alerts, Share & Save Insights + More!

Uncategorized Sep 15, 2023

Here's an overview of what's covered in this new edition of Etsy Seller News!

1. Beware of Scammers! There's been a notable increase in sellers receiving messages and calls from fake "Etsy support." Some sellers are also being approached by faux “buyers”. On the buyer side, there have been instances of individuals calling random “support” numbers found online, unknowingly inviting scams. A reminder: always initiate support requests solely through Etsy's official Help Center and their contact support form.

2. UK Sellers & Royal Mail Collaboration: Good news for UK sellers! You can now let Royal Mail print your Etsy shipping labels. However, there's a catch: each label comes with a QR code that needs scanning by Royal Mail – which can be time-consuming.

3. Etsy's Share & Save Program: If you missed our previous episode on this, here's a refresher: Sellers can save 4% by leveraging this program. The links are 'cookied' for 30 days, allowing you to earn from any purchase made within that time.

4. Important Policy Update on Imagery: Effective from September 8th (apologies for the delay in sharing!), Etsy has revised its content guidelines concerning minors. The platform now prohibits content that depicts minors in undergarments, images highlighting minors in form-fitting attire focusing on private areas, or any poses perceived as age-inappropriate.
