Etsy began allowing sellers to list face coverings in early April due to the demand from people concerned about COVID-19.
It created a new category for handmade face masks called “Face Masks & Coverings,” as well as a new category for patterns called “Mask Patterns” under “Patterns & How-To in Craft Supplies.”
This week it updated attributes related to face masks and hand sanitizer, indicating it remains committed to coronavirus-related items.
The new attributes to the Face Masks & Coverings and Face Mask Patterns categories allow sellers to add more details, including the following:
- Size: Adult or Child
- Filter Pocket: Yes or No
- Nose Wire: Yes or No
- Style: Bandana, Pleated, and Fitted
- Closure: Elastic or Tie
The new attributes to the Hand Sanitizer category include the following::
- Type: Gel, Foaming, Liquid, Spray, or Wipes
