Report a listing on

To report an item on

  1. At the bottom right of the listing page on, click Report this item to Etsy.

You may also flag an entire shop using the Report this shop to Etsy link on the left of the shop's homepage.

Report a listing in the Etsy app

If you’re using the Etsy app for iOS (version 5.71 or newer), you can report a listing. We’re working on making the Report Listing feature available for Android in the near future. 

To report a listing in the Etsy app: 

  1. Navigate to the listing you want to report.
  2. Scroll to the bottom right of the listing page and tap Report this item
  3. On the Report Listing page that pops up, select the reason for reporting the item.
  4. Tap Submit report.

What happens when I report an item?

A notice will be sent to Etsy Admin to review the item. We may contact the seller or take other appropriate action. This is a confidential process. Etsy will not tell the seller the name of the member who reported them.
