Etsy Editing App

I just found this cool app one day on etsy and thought I would share it with you! It's an app on the website called Craftopolis, and it allows you to edit all of your listings at once. Pretty amazing stuff if you ask me!  Here, I'll walk you through it.

So, first, go to Etsy and on Your main Etsy page, scroll down to the last link on the menu at the left, called Featured Apps.


This link will take you to a list of all kinds of cool Etsy apps, but amongst the list, find Craftopolis.

 This site allows you to check out who is hearting you, how many items sold on a given day, taps into your tags, taps into your google analytics, and then also does this cool editing thing. Click the Quick Edits tab at the top.


You can edit listings in a few different ways. You can edit the prices of each item by altering the drop down menus at the top. So you can take a few bucks off each, or you can discount by a percentage.


But you can also edit listings descriptions,  and titles too! I haven't found something this easy in a long time- I love that you can do it all at once. Now if they would allow you to change and store your banners here too, I'd be all set!


Happy Etsying!

  6. I just used this the other day to edit descriptions. Had a couple hang ups at first, I was worried. But, tried again with a little more patience and it worked beautifully.
    Such a HUGE timesaver!!

  8. Changes to whole way I look at having a sale on Etsy. Super Super Super. No more one by one reducing the price and not more revised invoices. How fabulous. We are adding this to our tech check off list for next year's BOC Open Studio Blog Hop.
    Thanks so much Lori.

  19. Very cool ap, I only got as far as the who hearts you part. Thanks for the Tutorial. Have you checked out Clockbot? Maybe I am the last to find it. You can set up your renewals on a timer. So far hasn't done much for my sales but at least I don't have to keep running to the computer to renew another item to be "out there".

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
