Talking to Etsy is like being made to sit in the corner and then banging your head into two walls simultaneously. It’s uselessly abusive, counter-productive, and hurts like hell!
Etsy is well on its way to becoming the WalMart of craft supplies, and they pay as much attention to their customers’ desires and dislikes as a parent with a naughty child. Well, we “naughtly children” are fed up with being ignored and are going to send a message to Etsy that will hit them in their bank account, the only sure way to get their attention.
I received the following message today, and I fully intend to participate. I hope you will, too.
Dear Fellow Etsian:
After reading 100’s of posts regarding the new feedback system and THEN reading the response from the administration I am convinced that the administration is committed to the new system and does not respect our concerns… so, In response I propose a collective “Vacation Day,” September 21st.
GO ON VACATION SEPTEMBER 21st
The idea is like an old fashion “Sit-in” to link arm in arm…. sellers will put their shop on vacation for 24-hours, and buyers refrain from shopping that day. We hope to show Etsy that we have strength in numbers. (If your shop is already on vacation – looks like we will be joining you 🙂
Please spread the word via convo, email, FB, twitter, and blogs.
No need to convo back, unless you want to 🙂 Just delete or pass on… whatever you are comfortable with. We understand its not for everyone. 🙂
Thank you! All the best.
Most of my time nowadays is spent taking care of my Grandmother, but the minute I have the time, I’m jumping off the sinking Etsy ship and moving my business to StorEnvy. In the meantime, I intend to nag Etsy on every opportunity that presents itself.
