Etsy isn’t working out for me. Since they changed their search formula, my shop has been dead in the water. And this past weekend they had a glitch that charged sellers some crazy, unexpected fees. Some folks, like me, were hit with only a “small” charge like $78. Others were hit with three, four, five, or even SIX DIGIT charges! And though Etsy is claiming it was a “small number of sellers”, the forums I was in paint a different picture.
See here for more news on the Etsy glitch.
Aside from that, it seems I’m paying them fees to promote my listings each month with little to no return. Even trying the newer SEO searches hasn’t really netted any results.
I made a shop page on here to see if that made a difference.
So please, feel free to poke around my new shop page and see what all is going on!
