Connecting Your IndieMade Site to Etsy

If you are a subscriber to the Pro or Plus plan, you can connect your IndieMade site to your Etsy store. Once authorized, you can automatically make Etsy listings when you create new products, update listings as you update your IndieMade products, and so on.

And your inventory is kept up to date for you automatically: make a sale on Etsy and your IndieMade stock decreases. Sell the last item on your IndieMade store, and the corresponding Etsy product is delisted. It's a huge time saver.

The following sections describe this feature in more detail.

Hi, I went through the steps to link my Etsy shop, but it doesn't appear on the menu of my website.  Can you please let me know what's missing?  I don't necessarily want to push products one way or another, but simply want to have the connection.

Thanks!

I was curious if indiemade connects with Etsy often to update the listings, or do I need to download a csv everytime I add a new listing while on Etsy. I have connected to my Etsy store.

Thanks!

IndieMade

Hi Jeneane, after you connect to your Etsy store and sync your products:

  • You'll find that it's best to create the products in IndieMade first, then push the new products over to Etsy as draft items in Etsy. Going in the opposite direction ( importing from Etsy to IndieMade ) requires you to remove each line in the CSV that's a duplicate product, so you avoid duplicating your IndieMade products which adds more work for you.
  • You can update Etsy listings as you update your IndieMade products.
  • Inventory is kept up to date for you automatically -- make a sale on Etsy and your IndieMade stock decreases; sell the last item on your IndieMade store, and the corresponding Etsy product is de-listed.
