Customised orders through Etsy app
Etsy has recently added the ability to create custom orders from conversations to the Etsy app.
When a shopper sends a request, in the Etsy app sellers will be able to tap the listing icon at the bottom of the 'Convo' to create a custom listing. The buyer is then able to add the custom listings to their cart from within the 'Convo'. This feature is currently only available in the iOS version of the Sell on Etsy app but will be available on Android soon.
Etsy has also been testing out new ways to highlight sales to shoppers such as informing them when a shop’s sale is ending. A limited-time offer to potential new buyers is being tested as well. Both tests started in March, and are being tested on a percentage of buyers on Etsy - find out more about all current buyer marketplace testing here.
