Are You Sick Of Putting Up With Etsy's Disrespect And Incompetence?

I just found this great site that offers people recourse when they feel they have been wronged by a company.  I think everyone who has a legitimate bone to pick with Etsy and its policies, should SERIOUSLY contribute.  Don't just be pissed.  Take action!  It will make you feel lighter!

  TELL YOUR STORY on Groubal.


  1. Yes I am tired of Etsy’s disrespect and their condescending attitude as well as hypocrisy. As far as selling, I felt Etsy was not the place for my artwork a long time ago, and so became just a buyer, however I am starting to now think that I possibly don’t want to do ANY business with Etsy. I’m just trying to find someone, who is not an Etsy lover that falls all over themselves in gratitude every time Etsy farts, to give me their opinion on a small situation in regards Etsy, for this will be very telling, for me at least, about how Etsy does business.

  2. Oh hell yes! Wretched, horrible people. The will victimize you in the blink of an eye.

  3. I am just sick and tired of working hard, making sure my items are crafted to the highest quality standards, just to see the sell be lost to freaking paper banners made out of old magazines and be called vintage with a huge price tag. I, for the life of me, cannot understand why I make $200.00 - $300.00 per craft show or party, just to have my shop remain stagnant because it is not "pale enough" or "trendy enough" or simply because I refuse to put a mustache in any of the items I create.

  4. You should try out It's a new social shopping website with the same style of setup where you can control your Store Profile and products. Listing Credits are a WAAAY better deal than Etsy as well. They also have some pretty sweet startup deals for new Stores.

  5. I regret every knowing about Etsy, I've allowed myself to be disrespected by a buyer that claims she never received my hand made garment. I REFUNDED HER $44.00 & told her to KEEP THE HANDCRAFTED GARMENT..SHE STILL BASHED ME WITH A A BAD REVIEW...Etsy said that I needed to work it out with her....
    Honestly since dealing with Etsy & joining a forum or two every now and then..I feel defeated..
    I am the only seller on Etsy, selling a certain women's garment & I've been told to redo, redo & redo..Oh you have A WONDERFUL NICHE..sick of their opinions, especially being that my sell are nasty since joining MARCH 2011..IT'S PAINFUL TO KNOW THAT i MAKE MODEST GARMENTS FOR WOMEN BUT THE NUDITY IS WHAT SELLS THE MOST ON THAT SITE....I feel awful knowing that I can not tell my teen or my adult kids to look at my Etsy site..
    I dislike Etsy, & I really hope that someone shuts them down...walking away from sewing now..Thanks to Etsy..
    Thank you for this site...MAYBE IT WILL STOP THE DEMON WORSHIPING...
