Connecting to Etsy

This article will show you how to connect your Etsy account to Solid Commerce.

If you would like to view a complete overview of our integration with Etsy, see Etsy Webinar Recording.



You can only list handmade or vintage items on Etsy. Arts and crafts supplies are also permitted, but no other newly manufactured items can be sold.

Etsy strictly enforces these requirements. They will close your account if you attempt to sell non-vintage manufactured items that aren't supplies.

Before You Connect to Etsy

Before connecting to Etsy, you need to create a Warehouse (or Vendor Inventory List), create a Market List, and create an Etsy Pricing Rule.


Connecting to Etsy

1) Go to the Marketplace menu -> Marketplaces Setup.

2) Click on the Etsy tab.

3) Enter your Shop name from Etsy.

  • In Etsy, click on Shop Manager in the to top menu. At the bottom of the page, under SALES CHANNEL, copy the Etsy shop name.

4) Enter your User Id from Etsy.

  • In Etsy, click on You to view your user id.

5) Click the Connect to Etsy button.



6) Etsy's sign in page will load. Sign in. Click the Allow Access button after signing in.


Importing Live Listings

Before importing your live listings, we recommend getting familiar with the type of data that imports and the way imported SKUs are handled. For details, see Importing Live Listings From Etsy (Including SKU Formation and a Description of the Data That Imports).

If you're ready to import:

1) Check the Automatically insert new products from Etsy check box.

2) Select the correct:

  • Warehouse name
  • Market list name
  • Import pricing rule



3) Select a Default automation status from the drop-down menu.



  • If you are new to Solid Commerce, we recommend importing your listings with the Default automation status set to: Start NOT Automated.

With the automation off, Solid Commerce will not communicate with Etsy. We will import orders, and track quantities, but we will not send quantity or price updates to Etsy.

Once you are certain the quantities in Solid Commerce are correct, and understand how to manage your inventory, prices, and listings, you are ready to turn the automation on.

      • Go to your Etsy Market List in the Inventory Manager. Select all of your imported listings and click the Start Automation button.
  • If you need to import listings on an ongoing basis, come back to this Marketplaces Setup page. Change the Default automation status to: Start Automated.

4) Click the Update Etsy Auto Insert Rule button.



Managing Etsy Orders

Etsy orders begin syncing automatically as soon as you connect.

Unfortunately, Etsy doesn't make shipping methods available through their API, so we can't pull the correct methods. In Solid Commerce, all orders will have a Ship Method of Standard. The original shipping method requested by your buyer will continue to be available on Etsy.
