Easy Sell on Etsy Mobile App

Good Morning,

Today I would like to share a little bit about the mobile app for sellers.

The Sell on Etsy App is a downloadable application for mobile phones that lets you interact with etsy in a different way.

Instead of listing an item, you may share a photo and brief note about what you are doing, what the item in the photo is, or your creation process (piles of jump rings, lengths of wire, blobs of clay, you get the idea).

It is fairly simple to use, and it actually does do its job.  I have used the application three times to post a photo to etsy, and share it other places as well and Shop views have gone up.  That is nice.

Available for both Apple, and Android systems, scroll to the bottom of the etsy Home page and find the Mobile Apps link, it will take you to the Apps page, it is the third item down from the top.  You may also wish to add the Etsy app which will allow you to shop the site as well.

After download, you may open the app and choose Dashboard (or that may be the default window), here you can see your Shop's Activity, Stats (views and sales) or the Sell Now feature which allows you to sell an item from your shop right from your phone.

Tap the Dashboard Menu at the top of the screen, a new menu will appear and you may choose Shop Update from the list.  You will be taken to a new screen (depending on your phone icons and screens may vary), where you will be asked to upload a photo.  You may choose one from your phone or from another source (mine suggests "documents").

Select the photo you would like to share, adjust your photo or continue on by touching "next".  Here you can tag a listing from your shop, tap the photo and select from the items listed, and touch "next" on your screen.  You will see a small orange tag with an E in it, like a price tag on your photo.  Now you may enter a description or note about your photo.  Touch "Done",  Touch Share on Etsy.

Your photo will post to etsy, you can view it on your homepage under "Updates from shops you like".  

You may also choose to share your photo on Social Media sites, a new window should appear after your photo has uploaded, asking you if you would like to share the photo elsewhere.  Facebook, Google, Twitter, and other sites will be available, select your favorite and you done.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look.  In hope this brief look at the app has been helpful.

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.
