Establishing the Connection to Your Etsy Store

Before your IndieMade site and your Etsy store can communicate, you need to verify that you're the store owner, and explicitly grant access to IndieMade to make changes to your store on your behalf. You only need to do this once.

In your dashboard, navigate to website and then click on connect. (If your dashboard doesn't have a connect option, then your plan doesn't support the connect feature. You'll need to upgrade to another level of service before proceeding.) Click on the button reading Connect to Etsy and authorize account.

initial connection etsy

When you click on this button, you'll be sent over to Etsy's servers. You may be asked to log in to your Etsy account before proceeding. Eventually you should see a screen like the following.

Etsy allow access screen

Click the blue Allow Access button and your IndieMade store will be able to make changes to your Etsy store on your behalf. You'll be sent back to your dashboard to make futher changes.

You'll only have to establish the connection to your Etsy store once. If you no longer want access, you can revoke the access from this screen.

I have two etsy shops and would love to be able to link to them both. If, when creating a new listing, we could choose which shop to link it to, it would be a big help.

Would love to be able to link more than 1 store!

I also have 2 stores and want to connect them both on this new site!

Hi,

i have just connected my etsy shop to indiemade, but i can not see it anywhere? Should it appear at my website menu as "shop" or must i connect it manually somehow?

thank you

Hi Kris,

Looks like you have two IndieMade accounts. You'll want to be sure you are setting up the correct account.

Once you've connected your IndieMade and Etsy stores on the Website > Connect page, you're ready to export products from Etsy and then import to IndieMade.

Here are the steps:

(1) Export your products from Etsy to a CSV file.

(2) Edit the product listings in the CSV file.

(3) Import the CSV file to IndieMade ( on the Store > Products page ).

The above steps with screenshots can be found on this page:

(4) Connect your IndieMade and Etsy listings.

Here are the steps to link products:

(1) Log in to your Store > Products page:

(2) Place a check mark next to each item you'd like to sync. ( Or skip this step and continue to next step to sync all products. )

(3) At the top of the page, click PUSH PRODUCTS TO ETSY.

(4) Select how you'd like to link products ( e.g. _Try to link to existing listings with the same name_ ).

(5) Click blue PUSH TO ETSY button.

Best,

Andrew
