Etsy moderator Alexandra published the following post on the Etsy announcement board on Tuesday:
Today, we’re making a series of announcements that collectively represent our most ambitious efforts yet to support creative entrepreneurs. To learn more about these features and how to make the most of them in your shop, you can head to this page.
We’re excited to announce we’ve built a whole new global market dedicated to craft supplies: Etsy Studio. When it launches in the spring, shoppers will be able to come to Etsy Studio for original DIY projects and all of the supplies they need to bring them to life. Based on feedback from craft supplies sellers about the unique challenges they face, we’ve developed a whole new set of tools to address those needs, including better ways to categorize and describe items.
If you have questions or want to join the discussion around Etsy Studio, you can head into this thread in our new Etsy Studio Forums section.
Additionally, we’re continuing in our efforts to support Etsy sellers wherever you choose to sell. Today, we’re launching a new Shop Manager, a totally new centralized hub for running your business, that will bring all the tools you depend on and all of your Etsy sales channels into one place. We’re also introducing new ways to manage your inventory including the ability to add price, quantity and a SKU for each variation of a listing, as well as item attributes that will allow you to accurately categorize everything in your shop.
We’ve clarified our Handmade Policy, and made it easier to note any production partners used directly in listings. And, we announced that we’ll be introducing Guest Checkout in the coming months!
If you have questions or want to join the discussion regarding these exciting new features, you can head into this thread.
