User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
I use Etsy for 90% of my gifts I give for birthdays, Christmas and any other gift giving holiday. As long as you do your research about a shop (have a look at their reviews see what people say, how long have they been a seller, how many things have they sold, picture quality etc.) to see that they are a quality seller you should have no problems. You can find a vast array of things from allover the world (though be weary of things from the China region, a lot of those items are cheap and poorly made). Lots of beauty sellers include free samples of their other products when you buy something, which is amazing. (Who doesn't love free stuff to try) And I could fill a box of thank you cards, hand written notes and messages from sellers thanking me for my order. It makes it feel like you ordered from your neighbor down the street not someone six states away or half way across the world. I have bought nearly a hundred things from different shops if not more and will continue to do so because where else can you find amazing cool things made/sold by equally amazing people.
It’s a great app. You can find wonderful things there, but why don’t they make the reviews to be item-specific. For example, you’re looking at a product, and on the screen of the product it shows all the stars it has received (and number of people). Though that number of stars and the amount of customers that bought weren’t specifically to the item you are viewing, rather it’s for the shop (and all the items it offers). I wanted to read reviews on a product I was looking at and when I wanted to see why this product had hundreds of reviews, I realized that the hundreds of reviews were all from different items that the shop sold... not to the specific item I was interested in. I had to go through so many of the shops reviews to finally find a comment about the item I wanted. The only reason I buy a product is because of its reviews. This makes it frustrating to purchase an item when you literally have to scroll through reviews just to find one of the products you’re buying. Also, you can’t add or change the email you originally signed up with through the app. I believe you have to get onto a web browser for that. Just another lacking detail. One more thing, even if you get on the app three days consecutively, your “home” tab with the recommendations “for you”, the “Etsy picks”, and the “local” will still show the same items. It needs to be more discover-friendly.
This app seriously ruined my life. Etsy doesn’t give a crap about sellers as long as they are making money by pulling in enough buyers. Every time a case is opened against you they ALWAYS choose the side of the buyer and take money from your account without permission. All 3 cases I had against me were not my fault. The first one was a customer being unhappy with a product 3 months after receiving it when my return policy clearly states send me a message within 1 week and mail back within 2 weeks. I refused to accept the item after 3 months and they opened a case and I didn’t give them a refund and Etsy took the money straight out of my account. The second time was a customer demanding a refund saying they never received their item when their tracking number clearly stated that it had been delivered weeks ago, and Etsy once again took money from me without my permission. They also don’t take into account that items cannot be shipped on Sunday so customers get mad when their item is shipped a day late. Now they have a new policy where if you don’t offer free shipping your items will not pop up at the top of the list for customers, so you are basically forced into free shipping and lose customers by increasing your prices for no reason. Etsy is a waste of time and money and I’m upset I ever wasted putting energy into it.
I really loved Etsy because of all the creative variety of hand-crafted products. However, the past few orders I have placed have been massively overdue. I bought a Christmas gift for a friend in early December; it had an ETA if 2-3 weeks yet it JUST arrived mid February. There needs to be some sort of system of accountability that penalizes business owners if they take longer than the projected dates posted on their page - some sort of incentive for them to make sure they meet their own deadlines. Perhaps refunding a percentage of the cost of the item back to the buyer after a certain amount of time? If you claim that your products ship within two to three weeks, and it takes two MONTHS on more than one separate occasion, it is a huge deterrent to me from wanting to buy anything else from here again. I understand life happens, and some things are out of their control; I’m completely okay if it’s a few days (or even a week) past when they said I would get it, as long as they keep me updated. But that rarely happens. Most of the time I just get no response until I finally open a claim, which I really don’t like doing. Please develop a better system of accountability to make it less frustrating for your consumers! Thank you!
I downloaded Etsy super excited to see what I could find and how to improve my cosplays and all. I take partial blame for not doing more research before I committed. I found a listing on Etsy from “Cosplay Dream Shop” that promoted cheap commissions and I though I’d give it a whirl. Set up a payment system and I sent my payment through PayPal (what the seller told me to do) and what turned to months of messages of “when will it arrive?” to “I need my money back because you violated our agreement.” Commissioner stopped replying on the Etsy chat and I found her on Facebook and started messaging her there and she said she’d get my cosplay to me. I contacted Etsy to see what could be done and they said to call PayPal since that’s where the transaction happed so I called PayPal and they told me to call my bank because there was utterly nothing they could do. I call my bank and they inform me they also can’t do anything because the transaction was over 150 days or something and the only thing I can do is continue to message the seller on Etsy. It has been an utter nightmare and I’m angry and upset that no one can do anything. So in other words, Etsy is a platform for easy scams and trickery to occur. What makes me even more mad is that her shop still exists on Etsy! Thanks Etsy, for nothing.
