Etsy Hacks

I know this sounds like something wrong and encouraged not to be used.  But, it's just the name.  I haven't been able to find anything stating it's illegal on Etsy. And it doesn't affect your listings, fees or break any rules, it just alters "YOUR ETSY" page.

If you're a seller on Etsy, and especially if you have a lot of listings, these "hacks" are a must!  How many times have you viewed one of your listings and realized there was an error.  Then, you go back to "YOUR ETSY" and you have to click through the ump-tine amounts of pages to find that listing to click the edit button.  Or, how many times have you thought, "Boy, wouldn't it be nice to just copy the listing instead of copying and pasting the same information for a slightly different information.

Well, our prayers were answered!!!!  The catch, it's only available for Mozilla Firefox browser users at the moment.  You'll also need to install their Greasemonkey add-on from their homepage as well.  I was a little hesitant of installing it at first just because my computer has its moods but it actually was very easy and quick.

Once you have your Firefox and you have your Greasemonkey (who thinks of these names anyway?!?!?), click on each of the hacks bulleted on their site.  It'll take you to a full information page with screenshots and all about that particular hack.  Click on the orange "Install" button at the top of the page, you'll get a pop up screen, click Install when it's ready.  You can use a few or all of the hacks. Once you're done installing them all, log into your new and improved Etsy.  If you're already in your Etsy, I believe you have to log out and log back in for the changes to take place.

I came across someone talking about their Etsy hacks on twitter a few months ago and I'm so happy I did.  I have all of them installed.  It makes it so much easier get around Etsy as a seller.
