How to Update Etsy Shop Policies & Settings & Why You Shouldn’t Skip This Step

Why is only “My Website” showing up? (Etsy Policy)

Due to Etsy’s policies regarding business listings for selling on other platforms like eBay or Amazon, Etsy restricts users from showing more than one platform per shop homepage (they’re not allowed to show items from multiple platforms). If you are listing on multiple platforms, you can still show your other items by creating a new shelf for each platform under Shelves > Add New. More information about selling on multiple platforms here: http://www.etsy.com/market/selling

Why can I no longer list to multiple marketplaces (if this was enabled on my profile)?

On older style profiles, if listing with the “marketplace” or “storefront” option enabled, then you are restricted from showing any other sites besides where shoppers can purchase items from a different location. This is an old policy that was implemented to help combat fraud. You were able see this limitation on older profiles by looking for a warning icon next to “My Website,” as well as by heading to Account > Settings > Selling Preferences and clicking on an edit link directly under “Marketplaces.” Both these features were removed in July 2014. Note that for the marketplace feature to be enabled on your current profile, you would have had to upload an inventory file before July 2014 (if you did not do this, then your profile is automatically set up as a storefront).

Why is “My Website” the only item showing even though I have more than one website?

If you self-hosted your own website and use an outside domain, there are a few scenarios where this might happen: If you have not linked to any of your websites in the past (before July 2014), and then later attempted to link up the same website name twice, then all but the last linked site may be deleted from Etsy because they cannot tell which listing is yours… if you have not yet linked to any of your websites in the past, then please contact Etsy Support. If you have only one website (and it is the first you have linked), but it doesn’t show up on your home page: On older style profiles, if listing with the “marketplace” or “storefront” option enabled, then you are restricted from showing any other sites besides where shoppers can purchase items from a different location.

On newer style profiles, since listings with more than one website were being shown regardless of whether or not they violated Etsy’s policy, this was changed and now only single websites are able to show up under the new layout. If you wish to list on multiple platforms from your shop homepage at any time moving forward, you will need to create shelves for each platform by heading here: https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/YOURUSERNAME/settings
