List Products on Etsy

After successfully connecting to your Main Store and sale channels, LitCommerce will automatically import your product lists to the central dashboard. In this guide, I will show you step-by-step instructions on how to list your products on Etsy.

1 - Select products

First of all, you need to create a new draft listing. Please look at the left sidebar menu and navigate to All products.

Now, simply tick the corresponding checkbox in front of the products you want to list on Etsy and select action List products on Channel.

A popup will appear, please choose Etsy and click Add as draft now.

All product data will be copied into draft listings, and from that point, listings data will be maintained separately from the original main store products.
Price, Inventory modification can be automatically applied to listings if configured in Channels settings.
Other field modifications can be automatically applied to listings using Default Templates

After that, there is a notification that Products have been added to the Draft section in the channel. You can go to the tab Draft on the Etsy channel on LitCommerce to find the new listing.

At this step, the listing has not been published in your Etsy store yet. Now it’s time to customize your listing information before going live.

When a user adds a draft listing for a channel for the first time, they will see the "Add default template" pop-up window appearing. This is specifically shown only during the initial addition of draft listings. It does not display all templates associated with the channel but only shows the required templates, typically the Category template and Shipping template. The purpose is to assist users in conveniently adding templates to apply information to multiple listings at once.

The templates, once added in this step, will automatically become the default templates and can only be added once using this method.

Users have the option to choose SKIP to bypass the process, and even if SKIP is selected, the pop-up will not appear again when adding listings for the second time.

2 - Edit draft listings

Please navigate to the left sidebar menu, and find your Etsy channel.

If you want to edit your listings in Single Edit Mode, you can click on the listing title. An editing page will appear on the screen, including these tabs: Vital Info, Images, Variations, Category, Shipping, Digital product and Personalization.

Before publishing your listing to the Etsy site, you’ll need to fill in some missing information (which Etsy requires but does not exist on product information on the main store yet). There will be an error message along with a red warning symbol (!) to let you know which tab is missing information. The required field will have a red asterisk symbol (*) next to it.

Every product on Etsy needs to be assigned to a specific category. When you click on the Category tab, LitCommerce will help you find a suggested category from the Etsy system. The auto-suggest category function can save you a lot of time searching for a category from the Etsy dropdown. However, if you prefer to manually look for another category, you can always search or browse for a different category on Etsy to assign to your products.

You can also edit information in other fields within the listing as you want.

For the Shipping tab, you will need to setup a Shipping profile on Etsy to be able to use the profile when listing from LitCommerce. You can check this article on Etsy for[ Guides to create a Shipping profile on Etsy

In case your listings are digital products, you will need to enable Digital Status and upload a file for your listing on the Digital Product tab. You can understand that when you enable that tab, you will not need to fill the information for your Shipping tab.

In case you want to edit listings in Multi-Edit Mode, you can use our Quick Grid feature, which is quicker and easier to use than manual editing.
Please find more details about LitCommerce QuickGrid Features here.

Please note that LitCommerce QuickGrid is only available for premium plans. Once you have access to this feature, you can edit listings in bulk to save you even more time and effort.

LitCommerce also allows you to use Etsy templates and recipes to edit multiple listings at once. Please find more information on how to create Etsy templates & recipes here.
If you already have an Etsy template/recipe, select the listings you want to apply, then click the box Apply a Template and choose the appropriate option.

3 - Publish listings

Once all the required information is filled in, please save and publish all your changes to the listing. You can look at the bottom right corner and click on one of the buttons below:

Save & Publish - Save and publish all your changes immediately on Etsy.
Save & Close - Your listing will be saved as a draft on LitCommerce with all your changes.
Save Change - Save your changes but stay on the page to continue editing.

If you happen to save without publishing your change, all listingdrafts can still go live in bulk with all those changes later by selecting the listings you want to publish in the Sales channel page, then choose action Publish Live/Draft to Etsy.

Then, your listing will be transferred from the Draft tab to the Active tab correspondingly.

Publish Live to Etsy: If you click Publish Live to Etsy successfully, the listing will go to the Active tab.
Kindly note that you will be charged a listing fee of $0.20 USD for each item that you list for sale on or Etsy's mobile apps. For items already listed on your Etsy shop, there are no additional listing fees to list items on your Pattern site.
Publish Draft to Etsy: If you click Publish Draft to Etsy successfully, the listing will go to the Draft in the Etsy tab.
If you happen to save without publishing your change, you can still go live with all those changes later. Simply navigate to the Active box on your Etsy listing page, select your listings then select action Update to Etsy.
