How to list products on Etsy #
Step 1: Select products #
To create a new draft listing, firstly, go to All products from the left sidebar menu.
From here, choose the items you want to list on Etsy by checking the boxes. After that, click List products on a channel, then choose Etsy.
The system will then create draft listings on your channel page and redirect you to it. Along with that, you will see a notification Draft listings successfully created. Now you can freely customize your listings before going live.
Step 2: Edit draft listings #
You can apply Etsy templates and recipes to multiple listings to edit them in bulk. From the left sidebar menu, go to your Etsy channel under the Listing section. Select Etsy listings you want to apply templates to by checking the boxes, and click Apply a template.
To edit your listings in detail, simply click on the title of the listing you want to edit.
On the editing page, you can see 7 tabs in total including Vital Info, Images, Variations, Category and Shipping.
After making all necessary changes to your listing, click on one of three buttons on the bottom right corner to save.
- Save & Publish: Save changes and publish listing live immediately on Etsy.
- Save & Close: Save changes and close. The listing will be saved as draft.
- Save Changes: Save changes and stay at the editing page.
Note: If you edit an active Etsy listing and save without publishing changes, you can update changes to Etsy later by going to the Active tab on your Etsy listing page, select listings and click Select Action > Update to Etsy.
Step 3: Publish listings #
When the editing job is completed, go ahead and publish it on Etsy by choosing the listing you want then hit Active listing.
When it’s done, your listing will be removed from the Drafts tab and switched to the Active tab.
Step 4: Manage active listings #
Go to your Etsy channel under the Listing section on the left sidebar menu. Click on the Active tab to see listings that are published live on Etsy.
You can see all the information like linking status, title, SKU, quantity, price and so on which can help you keep track of the active listings on Etsy. You can perform actions such as Active listing, Renew listing, Unlink listing or Delete listing on Etsy by selecting multiple listings and click Select action.
