All new Etsy listings will renew automatically

By Dan Wilson June 15, 2017 - 6:41 am

If you’re an Etsy seller, here’s a new development: all new listings you make will renew automatically. It sounds like a good idea but it could also be problematic. Are you in favour of this intervention?

Here’s the announcement from Etsy:

“As you create new listings, you can choose how you’d like them to renew: manually, or automatically. Starting today, all new listings will default to automatic renewal. We began introducing this change two weeks ago, and it is now in effect for all sellers. Using automatic renewal can save you time and ensure your items’ visibility is undisrupted.” But automatic renewal is the default.

But there is no need to worry about your old listings:

“Please note that we are not making any changes to your existing listings. No action is required on your part to check on your current listings. You can change your renewal preferences at any time.”

And you also have complete control, they say, over all your historic listings. If you want to manually control your listings, you still have that choice. You can switch to manual renewal as you create new listings. You can also edit your listings’ renewal options under “More actions> Manage renewal options.”

Are you an Etsy seller who is going to be impacted by this change?

Have your say
