Anyone have any experience listing on Etsy? They seem to be a bit difficult as far as third party inventory systems go. Currently looking for software that will download my inventory of some other venue like eBay or Amazon and then upload it to Etsy. I don't think AOB integrates with Etsy.
It's been a while since I've poked around Etsy, so I went to look again.
I didn't see any way to upload files in bulk to them, but there must be some way to do it, because I found a couple services that will do an upload for you if you supply them with a CSV file. I thought they were fairly expensive for what you get. Those services uploaded from eBay listings.
I had a venue previously where I could upload a CSV file generated from AoB. And while it worked, here are the downsides:
1. You have to continuously upload new CSV files to the venue every time you have a change in inventory, or at least once a day. It's not automatic. So there's a fair amount of "babysitting" required.
2. Sales generated by the site (Etsy, Shopify, etc.) will not upload into AoB. So you will have to manually enter the order in AoB to remove it from your inventory and listings on other sites, or risk double sales.
3. You have to pay for the service to make the listing conversion for you.
I couldn't keep up with the AoB uploads every tme I sold something and the site was generating so few sales, it just wasn't worth my time.
Thanks Rhonda :) Yeah, it seems like there would be some extra steps in there.
