Default Esty users, did you know...?

I am fairly new to using Etsy, and found listing things to be very time intensive. So, i wrote to Etsy and asked them about making a couple of things easier, things such as adding the tags to an item.

I got a very prompt response from them, for which I was very impressed, and they told me that they are working on some things but they would be a while. They suggested that in the meantime i try looking into the third party hacks at this site.. http://www.etsyhacks.com/greasemonkey/

Ok, i must say that I am in no way associated with this person, but wholly cow do his hacks rock!!!!!! He has a "copy this item" hack that lets you copy a listed item; a "relist this item" hack that adds that to your sold items page, and a "bulk image uploader" that lets you upload the five images per item all at once. They have made my little Etsy life sooooo much easier!

Do the rest of you know about these???

Thanks. I didn't know, but then I'm not that good at all that stuff. I'm especially interested in loading multiple pics- great news!

brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I absolutely hate listing my stuff on etsy due to the fact there's no "list similar item" function yet, and I hate addding taggs, it takes a lot of time, and now I can just copy a listing, add taggs just once and voila!

Thanks a million for posting this, you've made my life so much easier!

You are very welcome!! I was so impressed that i wrote to the author of the hacks, and i told him how impressed i was. Then he asked me if i had any suggestions for future hacks... my reply was how about one that makes the vacuum run by itself?

I'll have to check that out. What I do now is relist a sold item that's similar and then just change the pictures, title, size if needed and maybe a tag or two.

I LOVE Etsy hacks! They're made for Firefox using Grease Monkey Sherry, so maybe there's a Grease Monkey app for Opera?

Woops, as always, i only gave half the story, Elizabeth thanks for filling in the other half! Yes, sorry, these hacks have to be used with Firefox, and you have to install the greasemonkey program first. Mind you, I am sure you all figured that one out! And crap, this is well worth the extra 2 mins of downloading firefox!!!

Val!!!! Hello!!!! ... yep purple and sparkles!!! Dont tell the husband the sparkles where extra though!

Do they make one to use on Ebay? Auctiva is going to start charging not only a monthly fee but a percent of your transaction - bleh. So I am using the Ebay seller template and uploading photos is excrutiatingly slow, one-by-one.

Sandra, sorry I didn't see your post sooner to help you out. Once you have Firefox up just to to the link and download any or all hacks that you think will help you. Then you need to close Firefox and re-open it for the new installs to take place. They will have executed themselves, and will just be there the next time you start Etsy.

Post again if you need any more help and I will try to be a bit quicker with my response!

That is a great site, Another great tip I have seen to make listings ahead of time so you can use them later is to: work on a listing and get to the last step but not hit finish, copy the url in the address bar, send it to yourself in an email. When you are ready to list it copy that url back into your address bar and hit enter, the unfinished listing will show up all information intact, hit finish and it is listed.

I am on a Mac using Firefox. So far it isn't working for me. I am going to email the developer. Anyone have the extensions working on their Mac?

Wow! I am so impressed. Etsy is now easy. "Copy this Item" is a godsend! Thank you Ian!

By the way they were working perfectly on my Mac. I was just looking in the wrong place to find them!

Yeah I've used some of the etsyhacks, and would like to donate as soon as I can afford to, Ian is awesome! There's a great bulk downloader tool that you can use to harvest all your info into a csv file that you can edit then feed to Google Base. Thanks for sharing this too
