Here are some shit to look at, all listed as handmade:
EVERY SINGLE PIECE IS MISCATEGORIZED AS HANDMADE. Nobody reads the s***ty directions on how to tag, because the INSTRUCTIONS SUCK. If anyone working at Etsy would fix this by limiting the drop down to handmade, vintage, supplies this s**t would not be EVERYWHERE in every single category, f***ing up the search royally,
BUT it’s only been on their radar for 5 years. F*** them, they have no concept of how to communicate so that people can actually complete the most important step in listing an item for sale.
This proves to me that whether something sells or not, Etsy DOES NOT CARE. They get their twenty cents, and that’s the plan. I HATE that these staff people are so incredibly opaque.
