In light of this announcement, Nancy Alexander is holding an upcoming webinar addressing how these changes will affect selling on Etsy. Nancy always wants her students to know how to implement any changes needed to sell profitably on Etsy.

“Etsy has removed those barriers to make their online presence even stronger than before.” Nancy Alexander

Since its inception, Etsy has provided a platform for stay-at-home artisans to earn a living selling their handmade crafts. But some of the site’s policies have been preventing their long-time sellers from operating effectively without violating the rules.

As of March 17, 2016, Etsy has removed those barriers to make their online presence even stronger than before.

As an update of Nancy's "Etsy Intensives" training, she is holding a webinar on Tuesday, April 5, at 8 pm, eastern time. The webinar will cover everything from Etsy's new policy update to all the changes you need to know in order to optimize your own Etsy shop. For more information on this webinar:

One of Etsy’s biggest features is informing shoppers about how an item is made and who made it. The new standards provide the transparency that conscientious shoppers appreciate.

According to Etsy, “…we are going back to Etsy’s roots, before we made things muddy with our policies. We want to give Etsy’s community of artisans' autonomy to work and create in ways that support the lives they want to build.”

Personal interactions between buyers and sellers have always been a core feature of the craft site that features unique handmade items. The new changes that have recently been implemented will enhance those relationships.

Whether critics agree with the new changes or find them bothersome, Etsy appears to have its clientele’s best interest at heart.
