Sync existing products already listed on Etsy with Shopify! – New Feature Release

sync existing products feature release

2021 is off to a wonderful start for all of us here at ExportFeed as we’re super excited to announce the launch of our groundbreaking newest feature – Sync existing products from Etsy to Shopify!

What does this feature do?

Simply put, this feature automatically fetches all of your existing from Etsy and syncs them with Shopify.

Once synced, you can manage your orders and inventory from ExportFeed’s centralized dashboard.

This is the most beneficial feature for those who already sell on Etsy and want to switch to ExportFeed’s superior order and inventory management system.

This also lets you switch to ExportFeed even if you have listed your products using a different third-party app.

Can everyone use this feature?

Our system uses your products’ SKUs as the sole basis for syncing your products across Etsy and Shopify.

If all of your products have unique SKUs, you’re all set!
However, if your products do not have unique SKUs, this feature will not work for you.

I already have a huge number of products on Etsy, will this feature let me migrate them to ExportFeed?

Of course! This is the main reason why we’ve worked so hard to make it available to you.

Depending on the volume of your products, it takes some time to migrate your entire store to ExportFeed’s Shopify app.

Will this feature let me migrate my listings from a third-party app to ExportFeed?

Definitely! After frequent requests from our valued customers who wanted to switch to ExportFeed from their existing feed-management tool, we decided to go all in and make this feature a reality.

Have any queries? Feel free to contact our support team about how this feature can add value to your business.

What is Etsy marketplace? Is it suitable for my business?

what is etsy

Etsy is the biggest marketplace for handmade items, vintage goods, and craft supplies with over 2,500 active sellers and 33.4 million buyers! 

What makes Etsy so attractive for DIY entrepreneurs is their community of makers, small-business owners, and shoppers who all share a passion for rare goods of all kinds. 

If those points resonate with you, you’ll definitely reach new heights for your business by joining Etsy. 

Do I need a business license to sell on Etsy?

As of 2021, Etsy doesn’t require their sellers to have a business license to sell on Etsy.

That being said, you will still need to follow any regional laws that apply to you as an online business. 

We suggest that you consult a professional business lawyer before joining Etsy just to make sure your business idea is legal by all means. 

How much does it cost to sell on Etsy?

Listing fees: You will be charged a listing fee of $0.20 USD for each item that you list for sale on Etsy.com or Etsy’s mobile apps.

Transaction fees: You will be charged a transaction fee of 5% of the price you display for each listing plus the amount you charge for shipping and gift wrapping.

Etsy will automatically deduct all fees owed from your payment account.

What do I need to get started on Etsy? 

Getting started on Etsy is fairly straightforward. Here’s a basic list of everything you need.

  1. Create a new Etsy account
  2. Create a unique name for your Etsy shop
  3. Prepare the details for your product which include
    • Digital product photos (800 – 1000 pixels wide)
    • A list of words that best describe your product – use these for tags and titles
    • Know the appropriate selling price
    • Keep shipping costs into account
  4. Go live with your Etsy shop!
    • Creating an account is free of cost
    • You’ll need to to link a debit/credit card
    • Your checking account info (account and routing number)

Setting up your Etsy shop the right way

Banner and shop logo: Upload high-definition images that represent the style of your brand and make a strong first impression on your potential customers. 

Shop announcement: Share a brief welcome message with shoppers. 

About section: Let your customers know how your business came into existence, your vision for your brand and the story behind your products. 

Shop members: Introduce any other members of your team or people you collaborate with. 

Shop policies: Clearly state policies for shipping, returns, exchanges, payments, custom orders, or any other guidelines that are important for shoppers to know before they place an order.

If your business is based in the US, we suggest purchasing USPS Shipping Labels on Etsy. You can save up to 30% than the USPS retail rates you would pay at the post office or elsewhere online. Learn more about USPS here.

Listings your products to your Etsy shop

Once you fill in all the information required for your shop section, you’re ready to start adding products to your Etsy store. 

Displaying your products for sale is basically called a listing. 

Things to remember while listing your products

  • Optimize your Etsy shop for Etsy search. 
  • Add your location to make your store visible to local buyers
  • Link all of your social media accounts to benefit from Etsy’s exposure
  • Explore paid advertising for keywords related to your products
  • Promote offers to incentivize the value of your products
  • Join Etsy community and teams and network with your niche’s best sellers

The biggest benefit of switching to the new pricing plans is that all of our packages come with real-time order/inventory update by default.

We’re super excited to offer the real-time sync feature at an affordable $10 bump to the existing Basic subscription package. 

If you subscribe to any other packages, they’ll come ready out-of-the-box without any extra fee!

Since a majority of our customers were having trouble with the delay in order/inventory sync, we decided to make this feature readily available if you use ExportFeed, regardless of the subscription type.

The great news is that you have the opportunity to perform live assortment, stock and order/inventory syncs between Shopify and Etsy as well as other major platforms.

Another update includes the meta-field sync feature being available starting from the Advance Seller package, which was limited to Super Seller and above previously.

Is real-time order & inventory sync available on free trials?

Of course.

Along with every other feature that any of the paid subscriptions provide. 

Do customers subscribed to the older pricing plans need to upgrade? 

You can keep using our app as you wish with the current features accompanied by your existing plan or you can subscribe to the live order/inventory sync feature for a relatively small extra fee of $10

The Basic package now starts at $29.99, which is still a bang for your buck.

We would strongly recommend you upgrade to the new plans since they offer a lot more value for your money.

Are the old pricing plans still available for new customers?

No, we’re completely abandoning the older plans since they are obsolete compared to the new pricing plans. 

If you have any queries regarding the change in pricing, please feel free to contact our support team.
