Commonly Asked Questions from New Members

1. I’m a new member. Now what?

Come post in this month’s main chat thread now, and then come back and post at least once a week. Be sure to check out our other threads for shop & listing critique opportunities and promo threads. Please read the thread guidelines for each thread so you post in the right thread.

2. I have a question. How do I ask it?

Post your question in the main chat thread. Don’t worry about interrupting the conversation, we often have several conversations going at once, and we love questions!

3. What is a thread?

A thread is simply a new discussion with shops posting below a title.

4. How do I post a reply in a thread?

Click “Post a reply” in the right sidebar (or scroll down to the bottom of the page). Click in the text box and start typing. Then click the “Post a reply” button at the bottom of the box.

5. English is not my first language. I’m not sure I should post.

Please post anyway. We want to help you sell on Etsy, whatever language you speak.

6. How do I include one of my shop items in a thread so people can see the picture?

Open your listing, and copy the entire web address (url). Then paste that entire address into your thread comment. When you post your reply, the listing photograph will appear.

7. How can I get the most out of this team?

Come back to the main chat thread as often as you are able, as we are continually sharing advice and best practices, and discussing the latest Etsy policies and site changes. Ask lots of questions, join our “Promo” thread often, and offer one of your shop items to be critiqued!
