Etsy community space is designed to seamlessly connect sellers with their counterparts, help sellers improve their storefront and stay up-to-date with the latest Etsy news.

Etsy have showcased an easy way of navigating the marketplace’s support-centre for sellers after sharing the news of updated Etsy conversations interface. The conversations redesign for buyers and auto-reply message feature for sellers is already available to some sellers and will be live to all merchants over the next few days.
