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.

Sincerely,

David Ewen

Fort St. John, BC

Cell: [protected]

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

Etsy Discrimination-censorship-interference in livelihood

I am assuming discrimination is still illegal.

I would like to report Etsy for discrimination, harassment and abuse.

Etsy has and continues to, harassed and suppressed me and my shop, reversed views, suppressed views and visits and directly interfere with my ability to earn a living from my business, since I opened my shop in 2017.

Etsy has censored, shadow-banned, hidden and now "limited" my shop. This go round, November 2022, my shop was hidden from view in searches, without my knowledge or Etsy informing me...during the biggest shopping month of the year!

I was stripped of my earned badges and hidden from searches. I didn't just lose a month's worth of views, sales and potential future sales, but exposure at the biggest shopping time of the year!

I had not violated any policies and my shop was in good standing, there was no reason for this action.

I contacted Etsy on November 30, 2022, in regards to their actions and demanded answers and restitution for revenue lost. On December 1, 2022, Etsy replied, trying to appease me with an insincere "apology" in regards to how long it took them to review this action...not of the action itself.

I replied back that same day and told them that I expected meaningful restitution for the losses caused by Etsy’s actions. On December 2, 2022, Etsy replied that a $100 credit has been applied to my account...$100! An insult on top of the injury they perpetrated.

Other actions perpetuated by Etsy against my shop...Etsy randomly "deactivates" listing, stating that I am making "medical claims", which I do not. I am very careful with my wording. What makes matters worse, is there are Etsy sellers who actually DO make medical claims but they're product listings are still live and they are making a lot of sales, to boot. Why does this rule only apply to my shop?

In 2020, I was making a lot of sales on a particular product (that had been listed and selling for a while), when Etsy suddenly deactivated and removed it. I contacted them repeatedly, but they would not explain why and/or what I had to do to make it "compliant". I changed the wording (since Etsy would not explain to me what exactly was going against their policy, I could only guess at what the “offense” could be) and relisted it three times, only to have them deactivate it three more times. Finally one person told me it was a link referenced in the listing. I immediately removed it and relisted, but by that time, we’re talking days, I had lost all momentum and LOT of sales, thus a lot of money.

After 5 years, my views and sales are still well below what they should be, especially considering that I have almost 900 sales. Similar shops have thousands of sales, including shops that have much less time on Etsy then mine...that’s not possible on a level playing field.

Many times I have asked if I am being discriminated against because I am a Christian and unashamedly include a Bible verse reference and display a cross on my labels...it has never been denied, only talked around.

I expect restitution for the damages done to me and my shop. I demand action, punitive and otherwise, against a company which not only actively discriminates against those to which they don't agree, but goes out of it's way to punish them and interfere with their ability to make a living.

Desired outcome: For me and my shop, compensatory and punitive damages awarded.In general, Etsy held accountable for these, as well as any other illegal and/or immoral actions, and restitution for all affected.

Etsy Mail service

I am a new customer and I ordered 8 key chains with attached inscriptions. When I placed the order there was no mention of when I could expect delivery. These items are to be Christmas gifts. Once ordered I was given an estimated delivery date of 21 December 2022 for seven of the items. Since I need to mail the gifts from Florida to California chances of delivery by Christmas is very remote. If the items arrive on your estimated delivery date it will be nearly impossible to ship the items to arrive before Christmas.

I must say, I am extremely disappointed in your service. Had you made known the estimated delivery date at the time of making the order I would have selected items that would be delivered in time to be properly shipped to arrive in time for Christmas.

I wish I had checked your Complaints Board because I would have ordered anything from you. You have 347 complaints with only 8 resolved. That is a pretty dismal success story.

Desired outcome: Expedited delivery of the items on or before 15 December. Order numbers are [protected] and [protected].

Etsy Indecent images of young child in knickers

Having been browsing through an Etsy profile page we came across a picture showing what is definately an under age child posing in only kniockers . See following link

https://www.etsy.com/uk/market/dirty_knickers?ref=pagination&page=2

I find this uncomfortable and downright disturbing that a child has been exploited for the sake of selling underwear to perverts to masterbate over. I would suggest that this picture is taken down immediately and the seller is reprimanded at the least or barred from selling on the platform. If we are still seeing this image in a day or so , we will take the matter to the authorities. Its disgusting with current legislation that this explicate material has been permitted to be used for the purpose of making money through the exploitation of children. Please do something ASAP about this highly immoral material.

Desired outcome: The seller is either reprimanded or reported to the police and further prevented from selling this material on ETSY

Etsy Purchase orders

I placed an order 8th november for a personalised bag for my wedding dress #[protected]. It said I would receive by 19th. It didn't, so I chased it to be told there was a delay, and it was being done the following week, still nothing, the seller completely ignores my messages, I opened a case and was told to continue to communicate with the seller as I still wanted my item, still I am just being constantly ignored and item has not been sent, please see screen shots of communication or lack of it below, I just want what I paid for. This is the second order in a matter of weeks that I have paid for and ordered in good faith and not received, also order no #[protected], this also has not shown up, seller said they would send replacement, and this still has not turned up, do you keep letting sellers take money from people who are pretending to offer a service that they clearly dont... These must be just scammers with fake reviews and I for one will not be using etsy again as I have been let down too many times

Desired outcome: Just a response from someone and my orders that have paid for... i have not requested refunds i just want the items i ordered!

Etsy Still no payment for goods sold in june/july

I am a seller still waiting to recieve funds. These two sales where sold to an unverified bank. I accidentally made a mistake by putting the bank origin in the phillipeans. There was no way of correcting so so etsy staed I need to open a new shop and re-input correct banking info because there is no way of changing the bank origin, so I did. My old shop, sadisticpractitioner has been closed/"on vacation" because of invalid banking. I reopened another shop under the guidance of etsy customer service which is called sadisticdesigns in-which banking is verified and banking origin is set to canada. I am still awaiting these two payments!

June 28, 2022. Order #: [protected] (php63,495.75) $1,700.

July 10, 2022. Order #: [protected] (php63,072.14) $1,500.

Please keep in mind I have yet to be paid so the numbers above are what I read in my finance section. I am aware there are fees but lets not get caught up in minor details, the point is it is now, november 29, 2022 which is six months later and still no payment. I will be notorizing all emails on this neverending issue and mailing to etsy hq. This is utter madness the repitition and mental health involved with this, shameful.

Desired outcome: To be PAID for my hard work and products! These are not cheap to make and require A LOT of time, labour and shipping costs!

Etsy Nonexistent customer support.

After two failed attempts to purchase two Lantern Press California-themed jigsaw puzzles, I meed to verify that there are no orders in the pipeline for me on these items. If Etsy is going to make it impossible to be contacted, I won't do business with them. Ordered puzzles directly from Lantern Press instead. Closed my old Etsy account.

Please kill any open orders under my name. I'm through with Etsy.

Thank you

This is very deceptive to the public and I am requiring a full refund and will send the items back right away. This was My first purchase from ETSY and i'am very

dissappointed to say te lease.

Thank You

Joan Lee-Moodie

Etsy Account suspended after filing harassment claim against another shop

I have 3 etsy shops, one for nearly 2 years and 2 newer ones with different niches selling seasonal sweaters and graphics. In august I received a copywrite infringement claim on a sweater that I know with 100% certainty isnt copywritten. I reached out to the complaining shop who at first denied it, then stating that is was their "artisen" that filed it but she didn't have internet and couldn't' be reached to withdrawal it. I had the same sweater on my other shop as well and received a copywrite infringement on that shop the following day from the same shop. I contacted the shop again and told them I was going to report their shop to etsy for filing false infringement claims, which caused the shop to begin harassing me through email. Within the multipl emails, the shop owner admitted to being banned from etsy previously for "waging war" on other shops, they admitted to falsly claiming infringement and that they would continue to do so unless my sweater was priced higher then theirs, the threatened to get my shop shop down, among many other natsy things. I reported the harassment and bullying to etsy 4 different times in september, and one of the 4 times received a human response that said they would reach out to the other shop. The harassment continued and I again reported the harassment, to no avail by etsy. I received an email in october from turst and safety that said because of multipl copywrite infringement claims, my accounts were permanently suspended. I appealed the suspension and provided screenshots of the harassing emails admitting to falsely filing infringements, claims, (16 to be exact), I included my claims to etsy reporting the harassing and bullying and false claims, as well as proof that all 16 claims came from the same shop owner and no one else. I received nothing from etsy except for basic emails response that said it can't be appealed. For a company that claaims to take bullying and harassment seriosu as well as following their policies, they did nothing to protect me, and instead punished me. They are currently holding nearly $4k in funds as well that I can access.

Desired outcome: I want my shops reopened and my funds released.

WOW! I am shocked to see the number of others who have gotten the shaft by Etsy just as I did. They are liars, thieves and idiots. They have pocketed peoples money into their own pockets and lied about why items were removed. They are idiots for not listening and understaning COMMON SENSE, They must not be from the States either because they dont understand plain simple English or how to run a business. I am extremely agitated and pissed off at Etsy. I now only sell on Ebay and am also looking for other positve venues to try.

Etsy tried to accuse me of selling a pornographic picture in my shop. THIS IS NOT PORNOGRAPHY, IT IS ART!

Took down my listing and yet left other identical pictures of PALS by Piglhein up for sale. They would not listen to anything I had to say. They type from a script and do not speak english. They do not understand anything. Come on over to Ebay to see all my beautiful prints, I no longer sell on Etsy. They are gonna drive themselves out of business for sure.

Etsy Shut down my etsy account

Etsy shut down my etsy store we had since 2011 we paid them over $200,000.00 in commissions. We can't ship our orders on hand because we don't have access to our etsy account. We emailed them 10 times in a week and No response. They have distroyed our business and shut it down.

Four weeks ago, I was locked out of my Etsy account for no known reason and can not get a customer service representative to complete the process of reopening my account, despite me providing security information to them twice now!

They are taking weeks at a time to respond to my support requests but they just suggest the same things and it's always a new customer representative getting in touch, who clearly has no idea of what I have already provided! I have also been asked to change my password which I have done as well as approve a small fund in my account, which I can no longer do as I can not get into my account. Please help as soon as possible!?

I am really frustrated as I have missed my opportunity to sell my Christmas cards and there is no phone number or web chat to actually speak to a human customer representative. I have worked really hard around my full time job, to get account up and running properly.

I am very disappointed in Etsy as a service and will not be recommending them if they do not help as they should.

It really has been an appalling service from them!

Desired outcome: Please help as soon as possible!?recoup loss and damage.It really has been an appalling service from them!

Etsy nickston fitband alta hr

I ordered this band on 10/21/2022. I was told delivery would be by 11/4/2022. On 11/5/2022, I contacted the seller to see where the band was as the tracking info showed it had not moved since pick-up. Nickston thanked me for my patience and assured me the band would be found and sent in a matter of days. They would let me know. A few days later, they told me it was not there fault that USPS did not move the band but was still trying to locate it. Finally, they located the package and instead of sending it to me, for some unknown reason, the USPS decided to return it Nickston. They told me this as though this was a good resolution and assured me once they received the package, Can you imagine? once they received the package, they would then return my money. Well I did get my money. I never got the band. Nickston is in my opinion a terrible representation of your company. I will never buy from Etsy again.

Etsy Account Banned Wrongfully with no Reason provided by Etsy, and they stole my money in full for having products on their site for a few days.

Created a new sticker printing store, where I do almost everything by myself including creating designs, handling shipping, and running the shop.

After one week with Etsy, they suspended my account without reason or explanation, and stated i would receive an email with more details soon.

It has been two weeks and they have not sent me an email nor replied to my repeated contact attempts and requests for an explanation. They simply charged my credit card and then shut my store down without notice or reason.

Desired outcome: I want my money back and I want to see Etsy penalized for the hundreds if not thousands of innocent storefronts they've shut down and stolen money from without reason.

Etsy Candy Cane Christmas Wreath

My name is Lisa Mitchell. My email address is [protected]@verizon.net. My intent was to order a Christmas Wreath from QiuXiaodesignShop. This "Fake" Merchant advertised a wreath in the amount of $56. 00. Of course, I didn't see the rating until after order the wreath. I see this merchant has numerous complaints but is allowed to continue to advertise this non-existent item. Etsy should have terminated this site at once. This person even goes as far to sending a fake delivery receipt that is sent to an "incorrect" address. I was the latest victim and want this site taken down immediately.

Desired outcome: I would like my money back, but I know that is not going to happen. However, I will probably not be shopping with ETSY any longer.
