Very poor 🤒
We don't know much about how Etsy handles customer complaints outside ComplaintsBoard, but what we see here, on our website, is quite disappointing. We think there might be reasons for the company's actions (like not knowing about the complaints), and we would be happy to see them among customer-focused businesses that easily solve customer problems. But until that happens, we ask reviewers to be cautious when dealing with Etsy and using their services, and to carefully read the experiences of other customers on ComplaintsBoard, because who is warned is armed, you know! 💪
The authenticity of the customer service contact information for Etsy has been meticulously verified by representatives from ComplaintsBoard using our proprietary verification system.

Etsy Not accepting a payment for a VeggieTales Journal.

I logged into Etsy for the 1st time. 1st thing I wanted was a VeggieTales video journal for church and whatever ministry that is going on. Now I putted everything that said on my card and when I clicked accept, it didn't go through. It said ca4d error amd nothing was wrong. Now I've been frustrated with poor customer service time to time. If treating 1st time shoppers, always tewat them with respect and not get disrespectful with poor customer service. I'm gonna try again and get what I want. If not, I'll never come shop on Etsy again ever.

Desired outcome: I'd like an apology for that error.

Etsy Putin action figures

I have been a customer of Etsy's for a number of years, both shopping and sending gift certificates to friends and family. I have admired your business model and thought that many of your craft offerings were superb. However, recently, I was referred to a section on Etsy's website purporting to be "Putin Action Figures". I was stunned by what I saw there. All of the figures were unnecessarily derogatory and some were very obscene. I felt that none of therm should be offered by a company of your stature. Therefore, I have decided to close my account and to refrain from recommending your company to any of my friends and relations.

Regretfully, Suellen Beverly

I ordered this item on December 9th from MyLazyNeeds. I have a confirmation email with a number [protected]. I never received a message that the order was shipped and have not received it. They do have my money. I ordered as a guest and paid with my credit card. I tried to cancel the order the same day because someone else bought my granddaughter the same item. I tried to contact them thru the confirmation email but they wouldn't respond. Please help! I am not happy.

Desired outcome: I want my money back please.

Etsy Customer services in always out to lunch

I wanted to purchase a hiking Walking stick. I looked at a lot of vendors on the Esty site and finally picked out what I wanted. I communicated with the seller as to length and color. The seller responded nicely, and we had a dialogue about what I was looking for so I made the purchase, but Esty error message there was a "suspension on my account" and would not let the purchase go through. I tried communicating with them and it was a horrible event. I'm thinking they're like Twitter before Elon. They picked up paychecks and didn't show up for work. It was a big disappointment that I couldn't purchase for myself, and to help a vendor, I kept trying to work with customer service. Why was there the suspension? I sent them the error message and anything else they requested. I got nowhere then security came on the email and said they needed further information. I said no I am tired of this. I've sent everything, then security came back and said well it's probably my credit card first of all it isn't my credit card and secondly if it was, it wouldn't say my account is suspended. It would be a message that the card was declined. The idiot that I was communicating with was just not bright, I don't think he had any IT experience or security or anything else so I never went back. I will never purchase anything on that site and I think Pinterest is also part of Etsy so I don't do business with any of them and it's too bad because it's a great platform for artist and entrepreneurs that create really cool different and unique stuff. I emailed the vendor of the hiking sticks and told him what had happened but he did not respond to that and I'm sure I understand because he hast to try and make a living using Etsy and did not want to make comments. That was cool I just wanted him and her to know why I didn't make a purchase.I have never purchased anything on Etsy. I've never had any business with them so it's not like my account is suspended because I did something wrong. It's an error/mistake. I suggested my account is mixed with another. I've gotten their emails forever but didn't get on the site until recently. I needed a cane or stick.

Desired outcome: I'd like someone smart enough to tell me why my account is suspended. Fix it. I'd like to buy the hiking stick from Mike.

Etsy Vi peels and perfect derma peels prescription only being sold on etsy

We have repeatedly reported a seller on Etsy who is selling prescription chemical peels which require a medical license to purchase and administer. Etsy has not taken action and has not responded to repeated emails and reports on this serious violation.

Because of the lack of action, it is beginning to appear as though Etsy has nobody monitoring reports of violations or that the seller store and listings remain up because Etsy is profiting on the sellers' sales. While we hope neither is true, the lack of action is a poor reflection of Etsy policies and customer support. This is the seller's 5th store on Etsy and there appears to be something missing in regard to the same offending seller being able to continuously open stores on Etsy. Screening out violators would be of utmost importance but seems to be lacking.

Etsy Seller return policy not honored by etsy

I had an Etsy shop. I had a no return policy, but would consider a dialog if I had made a mistake, sent the wrong item in error, or if the customer had a similar issue. I sold vintage items. Each listing explained that old items are not new items. Certain wear and tear was pointed out in each listing as appropriate. I sold an antique Qing Dynasty robe that was over 100 years old. The buyer loved it as we communicated before the sale. I sold the garment, packed it, insured it and shipped it. It arrived right on time. I did not hear from the customer for three weeks. The buyer never contacted me, he went to Etsy and filed a "Customer Protection Program" complaint. His complaint was that it was not what he expected and the lining was a little faded. I told him I do not accept returns, and the garment had no issues other than what I explained in the listing as well as photos. He followed up with Etsy and said there was a tear in the back. An outright lie. After a few weeks since I had no further communication with the seller, Etsy said that I was required to send a refund and pay for return shipping. I refused. Etsy closed my shop. Etsy closed my shop while I was out of state due to a mandatory hurricane evacuation mandate. When I returned home, I had to liquidate my stock and send everything to auction. In the process I injured my leg and ended up in the hospital.

Desired outcome: I do not want to do business with Etsy. Etsy is still trying to charge my account over $1,000. I want them to leave me alone. Honor my no return policy and close my shop forever.

Etsy Etsy has no record of my purchase

I have tried to return a product purchased on DreamNile. They require proof of purchase. I have provided the email confirming purchase and photo of my credit card bill on transaction date Oct 23, 2022 posting date Oct 24, 2022 ( -DreamNileBrooklynNY). Etsy shows NO RECORD of my purchase and DreamNile will not accept the return. The extreme rudeness of DreamNile’s email correspondence and Etsy’s failure to document my purchase ( evidenced by my credit card transactions) has so frustrated and offended, that I will not purchase from Etsy again. It is my right to return and be refunded for the purchase. It is Etsy’s responsibility to have a record of my purchase.

Desired outcome: To be able to return and be refunded for the item. To receive an apology from the company. For Etsy to review DreamNile’s legitimacy. For Etsy to apologize.

Etsy Can not log in to my account

Can not log in to my etsy shop for 2 day now. Tried all I can and been told I need to log in before they will help, even though that is the problem. It appears there no phone contact until you sign in. A friend email Etsy on her account and they sent a link for me, to use the link they told me log in before they could help. Again problem is can not log in. They have also been asked to phone me on my number held on my details. Still nothing. Tried to change password just in case but could not as it appears my email address is not valid. This has been ongoing 19/12/22 and it seems I can not get help on this

Same problem. Every sale i have made on Etsy is from my existing customer base. My customers have received their items and each and every one has left a 5 star review. Their claimed policy makes no sense and reflects unfair business practices.

Etsy TingliLife Supplies Separated Toe Socks

I purchased on 12/10/22 6 pairs of TingiLife Supplies Separated Toe Socks. ([protected]) Transaction #[protected] Color A, Quantity 4 @ $7.71, also Transaction # [protected] Color H quantity 2 @ $7.71 Total $39.60 using my Discover Card.

I see they shipped it on 12/16/22, however will not received my product until !/20/23. If I knew it would take almost a month & half to get my purchase, I would not have purchased them. You got your money immediately, but I have to wait through this long, if I do not get faster service I will contact my Discover to file a dispute.

Are they coming by boat, then railway? This is ridiculous time-frame. Etsy, if this the way you do business, I will never make another purchase. Never have I had to wait a month & a half for a purchase even coming from China!

Desired outcome: Want my purchase a lot sooner than 1/20/23, if you can't do that I want a refund!

Etsy Charged 3 Times, no refund yet!

Für eine Bestellung wurde mir ingst 3 mal der Betrag vom Konto abgezogen (immerhin 3x370€!). Kontakt zu eBay rein über Chat möglich. Beim ersten Kontakt gleich am nächsten Tag wurde mir rückgeneldet es handelt sich um einen Systemfehler und ich kriege 2 Zahlungen retour. Bis dato nichts bei neuerlichen Chat wurde mein Anliegen nun gar nicht mehr bearbeitet und es heißt plötzlich, dass es keine Abbuchungen gegeben hätte (obwohl klar ersichtlich ich von meiner Bank die Überweisungsbestätigungen habe). Mein Anliegen wird nicht weiterbehandelt und an ein anderes Team weitergeleitet, welches sich bei mir irgendwann per Mail melden wird. Wann das sein wird kann mir nicht gesagt werden. Unglaublich ich warte immer noch auf über 700euro, die mir falsch in Rechnung gestellt wurden und bekomme keinen Kontakt zu jemanden, der sich mit der Sache auskennt! Zu allem Überfluss ist meine Bestellung jetzt auch zwar laut easy zugestellt aber nicht an mich und niemand weiß wo sie ist!

Etsy After all, who is more thief? Who steals or who helps to steal??

I tried to contact etsy support but without any result!

As popular wisdom says thief helps thief.

The etsy platform is full of dishonest people who take advantage of those who with their work are selling and paying unclear etsy commissions, and then these dishonest people have full protection and help from etsy.

Sellers are rated for each transaction but customers are not and in this way buyers can continue to steal sellers' work and money with the help of etsy.

To do so, the customer only needs to place an order with a supplier and as soon as the order leaves and without having yet arrived at the destination, the customer just has to make any complaint and ask for the total reimbursement and etsy without consulting the seller makes the full refund to the customer and this way the customer is the one and when he receives the goods he also has the goods completely free, the seller is the one who is left without goods and without his money.

That's what happened to me with the order [protected] to beatriz asencio marchante from spain ([protected]

After all, who is more thief? Who steals or who helps to steal?

Etsy Wooden Arms CNC Router Plans Ping Pong Ball Guns

I bought CNC Router Plans for a Ping Pong Ball Gun from Andriy Goroshko. (Wooden Arm) He was very helpful, supplying different plans for different plywood thickness.

I retained a professional cabinet maker whose has a large shop w/ two different CNC router machines.

The shop phoned and told me that it is impossible to cut these using either CNC Routers, the pieces are too small. I contacted Andriy Goroshko asking for suggestions to improved the performance, such as router speed and type of bit.

He refused to provide any support. I was shocked on his stance. In further discussion with the CNC Router Technician he recommended using an industrial laser to cut the pieces, saying personally he doesn't think the parts cut be cut with any commercial router.

Interesting, I can not leave a review on the product.

I suggest this is knowingly a fraud on behalf of the seller. selling neat plans that can not be used.

Desired outcome: Two issues:1) One why a review cannot be posted, even though I was signed in. 2) Why is someone allowed to sell plans that can not be used as described by the seller

Etsy Closed my shop, can’t contact them, not been paid.

I create 10 Christmas Mouse paintings during early fall to sell as originals to my customer base.

I decided to create Christmas tree ornaments through Printify using my photography of the Christmas mice. These ornaments are from my art and designed by me. But they are printed as sold, and shipped by Printify

I reopened a closed shop on November 23, 2022 and listed 12 Christmas mouse ornaments on it that I designed, using my copyrighted images of the Christmas Mouse collection of paintings over the past three years. These ornaments would be printed as ordered on a sturdy aluminum base.

On Sunday, November 27, my shop was closed by Etsy. I was able to make email contact and Etsy responded that there was a suspicious login detected and they closed the shop to protect me.’

They sent a document which had questions only I would know the answer to. I answered the questions that day.

Today is December 7, 2922 and I haven’t heard anything from Etsy, nor can I reach them.

I can’t sign into my account. And because I can’t sign in, I can’t make any further attempts at email contact.

I won’t be paid for the sales I made before the shut down because they broke the link to Printify. Which means, Etsy won’t get shipping information, which means, I don’t get paid because they don’t know all orders have been fulfilled.

I want to sue them for damage to my good will as an artist with a collector base and lost income due to their horrible business practice of shutting down stores without timely recourse.

When they shut down a store, you can’t login, which means you can’t mark items as shipped. You can’t call them on the phone. You can’t do anything unless you can login.

By shutting down my shop, they have injured my collector’s confidence in my product.

Desired outcome: Have service reps on staff for shop owners to talk to that can and will resolve problems in real time. In my case, a suspicious login could have been resolved with a phone call to me
