Etsy is testing a new timetable for leaving reviews. Buyers use Etsy’s five-star review system (one being the lowest and five being the highest) to review their purchases.
Currently, a buyer can leave a review based on the estimated delivery date of the order (and expires 100 calendar days from that date):
The estimated delivery date is the purchase date + processing time + shipping days.
With the timetable Etsy is testing, buyers can leave reviews as soon as their orders are marked as delivered – the time window is based on delivery tracking.
The goal of the test is to increase the number of buyer reviews by making it easier for them to leave reviews sooner.
Etsy began the test this month and it impacts a percentage of buyers on Etsy.
