Bulk Edit Listings to Save Time

Some Etsy shops sell fewer than half a dozen items so it may not be as time-consuming to edit listing details. However, Etsy top-sellers know that the more listings shops have, the more likely it is for customers to find them. In that case, it makes sense to bulk edit listings especially if you are changing prices, shipping options, or descriptions sitewide.

Here’s a detailed guide on how to edit Etsy listings in bulk:

  1. Sign into Etsy.com
  2. Go to your Shop Manager
  3. Click on Listings (here you’ll see all of your shop listings)
  4. Each listing will have a box on the bottom right corner that you can check to select for editing. To select all listings check the box at the top of the “Listings” page
  5. Select “Editing Options” and choose your desired edit action from the list
  6. Make the necessary edits
  7. “Apply” changes once you are done

Once you click “Apply” your Etsy shop will automatically update to include all changes so make sure to check and recheck any important alterations before publishing.

That being said, the editing process on Etsy is so easy! The amount of time sellers save on Etsy compared to other e-commerce sites is astronomical. Read below to find out more about making bulk changes on Etsy and how it can benefit your business.

Edit Listing Details and Amenities With Ease

Now that you know how to edit listings in bulk you may be wondering what exactly can you edit at once?

  • Titles
  • Tags
  • Descriptions
  • Prices

Things like tags, titles, and descriptions are not only what your customers find but what the Etsy search bots look for also.

Update Your Price For The Season Or Market Changes

Price changes are one of the most frequent items that Etsy shop owners need to change across their store so it’s great they have the option to do so all at once. If you need to lower prices because you are running a season promotion, then just simply follow the bulk editing steps above and select “Price” from the drop-down list.

Seasonal price changes are great because it allows you to tap into new potential markets and gain a larger customer base through digital assets like emails and phone numbers.

In some instances, you may also need to increase product prices. Hopefully, you aren’t forced to hike up prices because of inflation or increased costs on raw materials. Still, you can follow the same steps as you would for lowering product costs.

One really helpful thing to keep in mind is that Etsy allows you to change product costs by a fixed amount or a percentage amount which only makes your job that much easier!

Add Products To Shop Sections in Seconds

Sometimes your edits won’t deal with optimization so you won’t have to bulk edit product descriptions or titles. Instead, shop changes can also be geared towards the overall organization and aesthetic. Say you want to add certain items to a section on your shop or change a products section altogether. Not a problem!

Follow the steps outlined in detail above and from the “Editing Options” chose “change section”. Once you select the new section you want all of your checked listings to move to, click apply, and voila!

Upload Up-to-Date Pictures of Your Products For Better Online Visibility

If you haven’t noticed by now let us be the first to burst your bubble; unfortunately, you cannot bulk edit product photos on Etsy… easily. To Etsy’s point, most stores probably don’t need to add the same image to every listing but still, why not give sellers the option to do so?

Say you sell Rolling Stones posters and you need to add the same image of the band to all of your products, what do you do then?

While you can’t bulk edit listing pictures directly through Etsy there are several integrations that will let you do so!

One popular choice among Etsy sellers is Vela. You can go to getvela.com to find out more.

Making sure your photos are up to date and high quality is crucial for Etsy SEO.

Keep Track of All Your Listings on One Screen With Easy Access to Information About Each Product

Whether you just started on Etsy or are a veteran shop owner you have probably realized how simple the site is to use! Etsy really makes it effortless to run an online business and keep track of inventory, sales, and products.

One of the really great features of bulk editing is being able to view all of your listings in one easy-to-access section. This view will give you a better understanding of what you are doing right and what needs improvement.

An area we see sellers struggling with the most is search and optimization. Oftentimes it’s not the best option to bulk edit all listings to have the same keywords and tags. Contact us today to find out how you can grow your sales on Etsy with the right optimization.
