Adding and editing a listing
How to list an item
Go to Shop Manager > Listings and click Add a listing near the top right.
Enter your listing's info and click Save as draft or Publish at the bottom right.
Bulk edit options
You can edit multiple listings at once in the following sections:
- Shipping profiles
- Shop sections
- Production partners
- Renewal options
- Listing descriptions
Note: If you have variations enabled for any renewed listings, you won't be able to bulk edit quantity. If you need to modify the quantity, please edit the individual listing outside of the bulk edit tool.
Quick edit tool
The Quick edit button allows you to make sweeping edits to the following:
- Shipping profile
- Shop sections
If you’re editing the same section - such as quantity on multiple listings - you can continuously hit Enter to move down the page. Note that filtering and sorting should be done before you open the Quick edit tool.
Note: The Quick edit tool will not be available for listings that have price or quantity set at the variation level. To make these changes, exit Quick edit mode and then click on the individual listing.
The gear menu
The gear menu is an icon that appears next to the featured star at the bottom of an active listing thumbnail. This menu contains many actions for your listings, including Edit, Copy, Deactivate, Renew, Change Section, Delete, and View on Etsy.
Editing your thumbnail photo
Your thumbnail photo is the photo that buyers see in your shop home, in Search results, and in various other places on Etsy.
You can modify your thumbnail by cropping the original image, or adjusting the thumbnail without affecting the original image size.
To adjust this image to your liking, click Adjust Thumbnail below your primary photo while creating or editing a listing. You have the option to magnify the image and manipulate its position within the square.
Filtering listings and viewing performance
You have the option to filter listings by:
- Listing Status (Active, Expired, Draft, Inactive, Sold out)
- Featured only
- Shipping Profiles
You can also see individual stats for an item by going to the gear icon and selecting View stats. You'll see listing views and favourites for the last 30 days, as well as your all-time sales, renewals, and revenue.
Sharing a listing
You can share a listing by manually copying the listing URL, or by automatically sharing it to different social media channels.
To share an individual listing, go to the gear menu and click Share. You'll have the ability to share your listing on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter.
To manually share your listing, copy the listing URL at the bottom of the overlay.
Featuring items are displayed at the top of your public shop in the Featured row. Feature and unfeature items by clicking the star.
You can also filter by featured items by ticking the Featured Listings box in the sidebar.
Rearranging featured items
- Click Manage next to Featured listings. You’ll see an overlay that includes items that you’ve chosen to feature.
- Rearrange the order of your featured items by clicking and dragging it into the desired position.
We'll only display four featured listings at a time in your shop, but you're welcome to star as many as you like. As one of the four featured items sells out, one of the other items below will move up to take its place.
