Etsy proudly announce the launch of all new categories. Yeah ? More like Yikes !! What a nightmare. They deleted all reference to Polymer clay in every category. I found my texture stamps filed under Ceramics & Sculptures. Yep, you read that correctly. Now they are filed under the generic category of General Supplies, because I can’t seem to find a proper home for them any longer.
I was reading through all the complaints made by shop owners in the forum that Etsy deleted Lampwork from the beads and that there is no longer a category to put Christmas Ornaments. And those fancy delicate beautiful polymer clay figures or mermaids and fairies? Oh, those were added to Toys category. LOL Seriously??
The new categories look like the WalMart.com website now. So sad and frustrating. Rather than spend the day working on orders I am faced with checking on my 362 listing to see just how badly Etsy @#$% things up for me. Here is a couple threads to visit to add you 2 cents to this matter. Please make your voice heard. https://www.etsy.com/teams/7722/discussions/discuss/15994118/
