Etsy is Life
Desaleigh2773 on 8/17/2018
*updated* Please Etsy please make it possible to search through your favorites!!!!!!!!! You guys have done such a great job on this app! My only recommendation would be that it would be a lot easier for people like me, who are on every day and have hundreds of items saved to their favorites, to be able to search through their favorites or favorite shops! It's quite a pain to scroll through my huge list ready to buy that item I viewed two months ago... Thanks guys!
I can’t post on the app, really?
The Retro Rider on 8/17/2018
I am an college student and an online seller, I adore the etsy website for the way it introduces potential customers to all kinds of antiques, the website is miles better than eBay. HOWEVER, the app is miles behind eBay, as the eBay app lets sellers post on there. Etsy does not have this on their app, very disappointed, huge road block to my business.
Please fix
hellachels on 8/17/2018
Nothing I click on shows up. It’s an endless black screen. I have stuff to buy please fix this bug!
Theft
HampTeam on 8/16/2018
I ordered my wife some custom shoes for Mother’s Day. When they didn’t arrive I called them we found out they were sent to the wrong address. Etsy instructed me to go to the post office of which they indicated they were sent back to the manufacturer because the address was incorrect. Etsy said they never received them back (yeah right) and wouldn't refund our money. Since they indicate on their web site it takes 6 weeks for delivery there was nothing the bank could do as to much time has lapsed. How convenient.
HAS POTENTIAL TO BE GREAT, BUT GLITCHES/BUGS MAKE THIS APP VERY FRUSTRATING!
mmatwell on 8/16/2018
This review is way past due & I’ve been experiencing the following issues (explained below) over & over. I figured it was time to share my review in hopes of getting these issues resolved once & for all. Since all of these glitches/bugs have been occurring on the app since I can remember (minus the updates they’ve made w/the shopping cart a couple years back-see paragraph 4), which would absolutely w/out hesitation change review of this app from a 3 to a 5+ w/out. *THE PROS & CONS* This is a great app with a user friendly layout. Super easy to navigate through, and i personally prefer using the app over my desktop when browsing/shopping. Love the way it is set up when & have everything you could ever need to search for specific items and prices. Great search filters & can search for shops or items. Amazon doesn’t even have the search for seller option. However, this app needs improvement & can be extremely slow at times when browsing larger more popular stores, some pages will not even load & then when you touch the blank white screen the photo of the item on page will pop up and then when exit out of picture you can only see some of the text but everything else is white & usually have to quit your session & start over. Another issue that’s been happening since the beginning when I’m browsing through on the app & comparing similar items, etc. & then the app just crashes all of sudden causing you to lose everything you were just looking at? So, when I reopen the app I have completely lost where I was & none of my recently viewed items show up like they usually do. Many of my issues w/the app are stemming from consistent glitches/bugs that have been occurring since I can remember. The app will just crash after 20 mins or so of browsing, & reopening the app your recently viewed & saved to favorites items are gone & have to start your search & session completely over. So frustrating... Also, I HATE how you cannot checkout & choose to pay only one seller w/the app? This is a terrible feature & cannot even count how many times I’ve ended up only purchasing one item instead of a handful of others from a seller bc I didn’t have the time or want to remove everything from my shopping cart to checkout. I would've made a lot more purchases if I could choose to checkout w/only one seller on the app. I know they made the option to checkout w/one seller on the desktop platform finally, so I know this has been a issue & problem for all. Yes, having the ‘OPTION’ to checkout w/multiple sellers is nice, but come on, not everyone wants to purchase everything in their shopping cart at the same time on every occasion. The more flexibility you give your buyers the better. Having to use my desktop to make purchases from just one seller without removing items in my cart is an inconvenience & more often than not, I end up buying elsewhere. ***HIGHLY SUGGEST THE FOLLOWING IMPROVEMENTS*** - allow buyers the option to checkout with just one seller on the app! This is a win win for both the buyer and seller and not really sure why you took it away in the first place? - start some sort of rewards program and/or cash-back incentive for buyers & sellers to use. I have never received any kind of promotional email from Etsy. I receive individual offers from sellers in my email, but would be nice to receive something you could use toward any purchase that Etsy offers to longtime members & account holders who place a lot of purchases with them, bc w/out your sellers & buyers Etsy would be nothing. For example: eBay has ‘eBay Bucks’ & you can use them (quarterly, I believe?) & the points are collected from the previous quarters total purchases. So the more you buy the more eBay bucks you will earn and be able to use toward future orders of your choice the following quarter & is a nice bonus if you’ve placed a lot of purchases from the previous quarter. It’s a great way to keep customers coming back, too, bc you may forget about it & then get an email & voila, you have eBay bucks you can now use! I’m honestly surprised Etsy hasn’t done anything like this as a whole & not just leaving it up to the sellers, bc some sellers never offer any discounts or incentives (a lot of them do, but some of the sellers that I buy from on a regular basis have never offered any sort of discount or free shipping, etc. so any kind of incentive from Etsy that could be used toward any purchase & the buyer has the option to use it however they please & any Etsy shop(s) they choose. I know I’m not alone here, bc who doesn’t love a discount and/or free shipping with absolutely no restrictions on how you can use it & what you can use it on? You’ve got to reward your buyers/sellers these days to keep them coming back... ~ Increase the amount of items you can put in your shopping cart, as well as items you add to your Saved for later shopping cart. Being limited to only 99 items in a shopping cart when you purchase items or know you will need to purchase them in the near future makes everyone’s life better & saves time. I know I’m not the only one who does this & there’s been so many times where I’ve removed items from my cart to place an order & then forget about it & then seller misses out on a potential sale. The 1000 item limit in the saved for later cart is really annoying & not very many considering how large Etsy is now & all the various items you can now browse, shop & discover. ~ Add purchase history on all listings you’ve purchased before (amazon does this & it’s a fantastic feature, which makes buying something again a breeze for people who place a lot of orders on a particular site). purchased you don’t have to go through pages of orders in your purchase history. My purchase history would take me forever to go back through & try to find items I purchased over a year ago & would be faster for me to search for it & guess than trying to find it.
Annoying notifications
Sari Luna on 8/13/2018
I turned on notifications to just my purchases and messages from sellers, so why am I still getting trash notifications like “oh, your sellers restocked their shop, go check it out!” Why? Disable this please. What is the point of having a notifications feature when you’re going to shove it down my face anyway? Turn this off!
Fix
iPhoneography crazy on 8/13/2018
Can you please make the page stop scrolling to the top every time I un-favorite something. It’s rather annoying
Fake jewelry and no help form Etsy
Sanantobo on 8/13/2018
Etsy has a lot of sellers some of them are good but it has more crooks and scammers beware Etsy does not offer any kind of protection for buyers especially if you pay through PayPal it becomes a PayPal’s problem Etsy customer service is slow to respond and are quickly to push on responsibility to your method of payment so there is no resolve within Etsy so anyone can open a shop and sell fake jewelry and if Etsy gets enough complaints they might close your profile but all you have to do is re-open with the new profile name and start all over again selling more fake items Etsy does not care about their buyers so use caution when ordering anything on the app
It should not be so complicated to create an account
Isabel Cruz03 on 8/13/2018
This is a good app. But it should not be so difficult to register and make an account... this should take as most as 3 mins long. 😬
I do most of my shopping on this app
WolfTsenW on 8/12/2018
Anything from birthday gifts to tarot readings to an antique Georgian cross, I bought on this app. There's always something new to see every day. Suggestion to developer: when your favorites go on sale, I should be notified.
Used to be good
bsbsddddds on 8/11/2018
Now it’s just full of mass producers. Like a more expensive amazon now. Also, the new policies and algorithms have been awful for the artists using it.
It’s been better....
Nttanaka on 8/10/2018
A couple updates back broke the ‘Items I love’ favorites. Now if I’m scrolling through and tap to unheart an item, the page refreshes and scrolls way back up to the same spot every time. If I click on the item and unheart it from its actual page and then go back to the favorites, it won’t refresh right away but eventually it will and scroll back up to the same spot. It’s extremely annoying when I’m trying to look through 500+ items I love! Also, bring back the option to check out from just a single shop!!
i’d give six stars if i could
bubblegumdumdumlooking on 8/9/2018
a happy buyer and seller 🌿
Fantastic
Abs Gails on 8/8/2018
This app is great. I’m getting everything ready for my wedding and the little detail stuff I need this app has. Also when I was having issues with my account (due to my own stupidity) I email them and they got it fix in a day. By the way, thanks Carlos for fixing it!!
NOT 4+
KristlDiane on 8/8/2018
Etsy is not for ages four and up, I searched up Nintendo and it showed a fully naked women from a video game . The bits weren’t even blurred out. Please fix this
AWFUL EXPERIENCE
Petrofunk on 8/7/2018
I’ve been an Etsy member for years but I got a new phone and when I downloaded the app again they told me my account had been deactivated. I have no idea why they’d do that. I can’t log in, I can’t create a new account and I can’t report this problem to Etsy bc you have to be logged in to report a problem!! And you can’t call Etsy either. You can log in and request a call. They don’t accept incoming calls. I actually selected “having trouble logging in?”, chose to reopen my account, entered my email and was told my account has been deactivated. What did I do wrong?? I buy a couple things a year and have for like 8 years! Hoping someone sees this and can help.
Widget works terrible
NJDevildog on 8/7/2018
Love the website and shopping on the app but the widget show more or less does not work nor does it show me anything of interest like what my favorite sellers are showing. This app needs work!
Selling
khazouz on 8/4/2018
Because I don’t even know how to post on my account and sell there should be a plus button to do that I don’t like it!
One star is lacking ..because your search box is lacking
LIFEBEAUTYNMORE on 8/2/2018
Fix the stupid search box I’m a heavy user of Etsy I get tired of not being able to pull up my fave shops because something is just right .. I have to go to past purchases or ig to get a link ALSO THE AUTO RELOADING OF MY LIST EVERYTIME I MAKE A CHANGE IS ANNOYING
Bug report
Giasb on 8/1/2018
First and foremost: the site is difficult to search. I love what I find here, but it is just so hard to sort. Search on Boho necklace and you find necklaces that are anything but boho, beads suitable for making a necklace, necklaces that are neither vintage nor handmade, non-necklaces that could be worn around a neck maybe, a clasp without a necklace and so on. (And yes, I know how to use a search engine.) And now there’s a new wrinkle. The Etsy app and the Etsy seller app are not communicating with each other. On my Etsy seller app, I saw recent activity that showed me something interesting on the Etsy app. When I clicked on it, I was told I must be signed in to see that listing...but I was already signed in. I went through a frustrating loop numerous times. It simply would not show me that article in that shop. So I searched the Etsy app on the name of the store instead, and it told me there was no such store. I tried this repeatedly, but it failed. My spelling was correct. I clicked on SHOPS. All my efforts failed. I was on the verge of buying something!
Sort is not working
Mrzhutch on 7/30/2018
The App usually works fine for me, but in the past week sort is not working. It is not working on my iPad or my android phone. I can choose the sort options but the results are not correct.
Banking info stolen
MajinJosh on 7/28/2018
I opened up a new bank account and used it to deposit my money from my Etsy shop. My new account is stored no where online except on my Etsy account and in 8 days, someone in the world got my new checking account number and routing number “coincidently”. But if you want to accept payments from people buying from your shop, Etsy forces you to store your banking info on their website. Again, my new banking information was only stored on the Etsy site. If you want to sell on Etsy, open I brand new bank account specifically for depositing money from your Etsy shop.
Search Problems AGAIN
HannahCeeLo on 7/27/2018
this is getting ridiculous! they really need to stop screwing with search logistics. cannot search by time or price.
Update Shopping Cart!
SmallBizOwner55 on 7/27/2018
Love Etsy but seriously it needs to update the checkout cart🤦‍♀️! Others have complained about this. We need the option to choose which items in our cart we want to pay for and not just everything in the cart from various sellers. Please fix ASAP.
Frustrating
1habibi2 on 7/27/2018
Trying to open shop on app...so frustrating...can’t list...keep losing my info...want to sell here but can’t even list
Not disabled friendly
Willi@n tell on 7/25/2018
Have to reduce my text size and use a magnifying glass in order to use this app, not acceptable!! far too many ads Cannot exclude countries in the filter NEEDS IMPROVEMENTS
New checkout has one problem...
MyLilSquirrel on 7/24/2018
I’ve had this app for ages and I love it, the only problem I have is with the “new and improved” checkout. I often add things to my checkout from from multiple sellers at once, but I like to make my purchases from the different sellers individually. It makes more sense, since they all charge for shipping separately and many have different shipping times. The concept of merging all the purchases together is a good one, if that is how you prefer to pay, but it’s not good for everyone. On the web version, you can choose to check out from different shops individually, so I find I do my “window shopping” and adding stuff to my cart from my phone but then making my actual purchases from a computer. It’s a little inconvenient that way. It would be nice if the phone version offered the “check out from this shop” feature, or allow you to select the old checkout style.
What a load of crap!
MagnetDude on 7/23/2018
I’ve been on Etsy for over 10 years now. When I hooked my Square account to my Etsy account, they began to RIP ME OFF! They charged me for every sale I made at my physical shop! These morons can’t do anything right!!!! Stay away!!
Grrrrr
notme736283262 on 7/21/2018
This is my favorite app. But it’s not working since the update. When you click on an item it’s a blank screen. So you can’t look further at an item or BUY it. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it, no luck. I’m utterly frustrated both as a buyer and seller.
No way to report shops for copyright violation
Count L. on 7/21/2018
No way to contact Etsy either.
What happened??
Poiuyghjklmnbvftgyhccdr on 7/18/2018
I love this app, but ever since your update, I can’t see any pictures. Why do developers always make things worse?
Truth about Etsy!😱
HelloSilly on 7/18/2018
I love Etsy! I like browsing through the art and collectibles the most! In a couple of years I will make my own Etsy Shop! Woo hoo! Etsy feel free to send me some discount codes or something! Also Etsy I wanna work for you when I grow up! Or now😂Thanks for your time!
Still won’t let me check out from one shop!
SRN4UA on 7/18/2018
I have several items in my cart that I’m not quite ready to purchase...but it looks like I’ll have to order through the desktop website to only check out from certain shops...I’m not sure why you can’t add this to the app? Will add more stars once you add this convenience to all of your Etsy shoppers... Keep getting updates but you won’t let me check out with one shop...really?
Crashes Frequently
Charley-56 on 7/16/2018
The most frustrating thing about this app is that it my favorites items lists are never able to load, no issues on a PC or Mac though. It frequently crashes too and I keep it updated.
They should change the rating!
46471 on 7/13/2018
This is an amazing app but it should be rated 14+ because there is some inappropriate stuff in there. And it’s not like you have to look that stuff up to see it, I just typed in molding clay and something very disturbing popped up.
Wonky app
Mother.of.crows on 7/10/2018
STILL cannot ever access favorites through the app. Always an error message. I used to shop on Etsy all the time, less now since I can only use it on my computer.
super easy to use
Nsjemrjskf on 7/9/2018
love this app! i just it all the time
Reliable App Falling Short
Molli! on 7/9/2018
This is my go to access point for my account. However, after the most recent update, one can no longer choose the specific category that they are interested in. Hoping for an update, but maybe this was a sign to shop elsewhere.
App needs to be better
hescalleddyer on 7/8/2018
The search function does not work for shops. Every time I search for a shop name, I get no results. I have no filters set. I have to go on a computer, find the shop and add it before I can view the shop on the app. Kind of dumb to have a search function that doesn’t return shop names.
Love the app
BleuliketheCheese on 7/8/2018
On mobile, under filter, I am unable to select categories. When I tap this menu, I am brought to the Sort By menu. However, when I tap the Sort By menu, nothing happens.
Sort broken
Fontanian on 7/6/2018
Your sort by feature is broken. I can’t toggle to search by most recent additions. Can’t shop. Bummer.
Adding a picture?
annyisok on 7/6/2018
I love Etsy. I’ve been a user since 2015. It always allowed me to buy specialized gifts for friends. Up until now, i never had a problem with my orders. However, one item I bought had a bit of a faulty and I was quite disappointed. I left a 3-Star review and wanted to add a picture...but I couldn’t?? I could only leave a picture if I rated it 5-Stars. That’s a bit backwards isn’t it? Should we be able to see what other people bought, especially if it was a scam? Besides that, the shipping price is awful and sometimes double the item price itself.
Love this app but....
Darlin DeDe on 7/6/2018
Love this app but for the last couple of days I’ve been having issues with the pics not showing. Hope this issue is fixed soon
You cannot browse your favorites for 3 months now.
Jackie260 on 7/5/2018
This would be a great app if it let you browse your favorites so you can add them to your cart.
Problem with app
alisa@ LovelyLiving on 7/5/2018
I bought a new iPhone 8plus on July 2, 2018. Since I bought the phone, my Etsy app isn’t working! I have uninstalled , and reinstalled! Reset And reset again. Please help! Thank you, Alisa Mullinax
Fix the categories
thegingerwatson on 7/4/2018
My app has not been allowing me to narrow down my search through the categories option. When I click on categories it only allows me to sort the search by recent, highest price, lowest price, etc.
Terrible usability issues
SmashleyFace on 7/3/2018
The last update of the app has rendered search almost useless. From a usability standpoint, it’s incredibly frustrating to use. The keyboard was changed from the native keyboard to something custom where the spacebar has been cut in half to make room for an unnecessary @ symbol. Typing has become horribly cumbersome. The touch points for the filter menu are off so you can no longer filter by category. Please have your QA test and sign off on the next version before releasing.
Plants
Mollytig on 7/2/2018
I had a problem with a plant I purchase do too the carrier taking to long. The plant was replaced by Esty and I am very satisfied with the plant and the service. Would recommend them.
Battery Draining App
katiedoodlebug on 7/2/2018
As much as I love Etsy... I can only at this time give it 2/5 because when I am on the app looking at all their cute stuff, I can literally watch my battery drop each time I click on something... I can play hours of candy crush, but I can’t look on Etsy for more than 20 minutes... that’s not acceptable
Offline error
nickyjackson97 on 7/2/2018
This app refuses to work, it always says I’m offline when I open it. I have unlimited data so I never have a problem connecting on literally any other app at any place, so I don’t understand why it consistently gives me this problem.
