In order to start selling on Etsy, you'll need to create an Etsy Seller account and set up the Etsy Shop. We'll be able to connect your Etsy Seller account to Shopping Feed only after your Etsy Seller account and Etsy shop are fully set up.
When creating the account/Shop, you'll need to go through a unique setup step. You'll be asked to create a listing from scratch using Etsy setup wizard. Then once the test item has been created, you'll be able to enter in deposit & payment methods for your Seller account.
It usually takes Etsy 12-24 hours to completely create the listing.
It may also take up to 24 hours for listings to be indexed into search results and categories.
When we create variation listings on Etsy they are created with only one drop-down option.
So by default, we will combine the Color (Variation#1) & Size (Variation#2) data, that you may have in Shopify, together.
For example: If you have a t-shirt with 2 colors (Black & White) and 2 sizes (S & M), on Etsy the listing will have only one drop-down and give a buyer the options of:
Etsy can only accept up to 20 characters for each variation attribute (Size + Color);
Etsy can only take up to 70 variations for one given product;
If you have more than 70 variants for a product in Shopify, Etsy will not list the product at all;
Etsy can only accept 999 quantity as a max. for any given product;
Product Titles have a 140 character limit;
Unfortunately, Etsy does not allow HTML tags in the product description when listing products via API. Most likely, your product descriptions will look different on Etsy in comparison to your storefront.
- Your images should be at least 1000 pixels wide, the height can vary. JPEG is the image format that Etsy likes;
