What happens if I need to change my shop name again?

You can change your name as often as you like before you open your shop.

Once your shop is open, you can change your shop name in Info & Appearance up to five times. After the fifth time, the process to change your shop name is the same, but your request will be submitted to an Etsy Support agent for review.

How do I know if a shop name is available?

Once a shop name has been used on an open shop, it can't be used again even if the shop it’s connected to is closed.

Keep in mind that the name won't appear in search if it's a username or a shop that has been closed.  

You also won’t be able to use a shop name that you’ve previously used on another account, even if that account is closed. Instead, you can reopen your shop

What if the name for which I am the rights holder is not available?

If you hold intellectual property rights for your chosen shop name and you see this shop name is currently not available, you may choose to contact the member to resolve the issue amicably.

You also have the option to file a notice of intellectual property infringement. However, filing a notice of intellectual property infringement will not free up the shop name for your use.

To change your shop name, click Change next to Shop name.

Once your shop is open, you can change your name up to five times. If you need to change it again, use the same form to submit a name change request to Etsy.
