How to Report an Item

If you see an item being sold on Etsy that violates our policies, please report it.

Report a listing on Etsy.com

To report an item on Etsy.com:

  1. At the bottom right of the listing page on Etsy.com, click Report this item to Etsy.
  2. Select a reason for reporting this listing, and write a note.

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

You can report a listing if you’re using the Etsy app for iOS (version 5.71 or newer) or Android (version 5.74 or newer).

To report a listing in the Etsy app via the listing page: 

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

If you’re using the Etsy app for iOS (version 5.73 or newer), or Android (version 5.74 or newer), you can also report a listing without visiting the listing page directly:

  1. Press and hold your finger on the image of the item.
  2. Select Report this item from the dropdown menu.
  3. On the Report Listing page that appears, select the reason for reporting the item.
  4. Select Submit report.

You can report using this method on the home page, “See More” lists, and within search results, for example.

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.
