Welcome back. We are now going to come inside of our shop preferences as we start working on setting up our Etsy store. Now, you’re going to be asked to specify your language as well as your country. Now, for the sake of this video, we’re going to start with English and United States. Now, you’re obviously going to do what’s necessary for your country and for your language.
You’re also going to need to specify your currency here. And once again, now, for the sake of this video, we’re going to specify the United States dollar as our currency. You’re also going to be giving Etsy just some information. This doesn’t necessarily count toward anything, but you’re going to be telling them what your intent is. What we’re going to do is we’re going to start in the middle and say we are selling part-time, but hope to sell full-time. What we’re now going to do is click ‘Save and Continue’.
Now, this is going to be the name of your shop, and you’re going to want to make sure that this shop name is going to be available to you. We’re going to go ahead and write any shop name. Once you have the name in that you want, you’re going to check to see if it’s available. If it is available, what you can do then is click ‘Save and Continue’.
Now, at this point, Etsy is going to ask you to start by creating multiple listings. We are going to create one listing in order to work through the process. So what we’re going to do right now is we’re going to click this button that says ‘Add a Listing’. What you’re going to do now is you’re going to place images in this area that describe your item. Now, you’re allowed to upload up to 10 photos for your listing.
Now, one of the things that you’ll see here is that you can’t adjust the photo. So what we can do here is we can click on top of the photo and we can then crop or adjust that photo for the way that we want it to be.
Once we have the changes the way we want them, or if we don’t want changes at all, we can click the ‘Cancel’ or ‘Save’ button. Now, if you have variations of your item, you can link to those variations here in your listing. And we’re going to pick it up from that point in the next video.
Okay. So, with that, thanks. And I will see you in the next video.
All the best,
