Etsy Categories Update
There’s been another update (7/8/20). This one is about new attributes for face masks and hand sanitizers. If you sell these, you’re going to want to update your listings to help target customers who are looking for your products!
Etsy has updated available categories for sellers.
I’ve heard that it’s important to do a category search while you’re listing a new product, rather than potentially letting the category auto-populate for you. Since some of my products don’t cleanly fall into categories, mine auto-populate incorrectly from time to time. So I know this to be beneficial.
If you take the time to search for your product category type, you will get the most recent attributes that you can then apply the ones that your customers may be looking for.
Beyond giving you that little tip, in this post, I will simply link you to the Etsy Seller Handbook update on the subject. It’s a short read (good info), and a quick list scan to help get the products you’re selling in front of the right eyes.
They state that they will keep their page updated, so you might want to bookmark it once you get there.
