How to Create and Manage Shop Sections

With shop sections, you can organise your products into groups shoppers can explore. Use sections to group together item listings by type, size, or any other category shoppers might use to browse your items. Your sections are displayed as links in the left sidebar of your shop. 

To add sections to your shop:

  1. On Etsy.com, click Shop Manager. 
  2. Click Listings.
  3. To add a new section, click Manage.
  4. Click the Add Section.
  5. Name your new section and click Save.

Shop section basics:

  • You can have up to 20 custom sections, as well as the default All items section that is in every shop. 
  • A section name can be up to 24 characters. 
  • Sections that don’t have any item listings won’t appear on your public shop page. 
  • You can only add a listing to one section.
