It looks like you’ve happened upon a design that we’ve recently been testing. Occasionally, we test new products, tools, and designs on a small percentage of visitors to Etsy. We understand that the idea of running experiments on the site can be concerning to both sellers running their businesses and shoppers browsing the site, and we make sure to keep this in mind throughout the life of this and all of our experiments.
The results of these tests are extremely valuable to us, and we use them, along with member feedback, to determine whether or not to go through with a proposed change to the site. If the information we're using has been influenced, it makes the test harder for us to evaluate properly.
As a result, as sellers encountering this experiment, we highly recommend that you don't change your normal selling processes, as the experiment is only visible to a small group of visitors.
If you'd like to know more about our experiment process, our CEO Chad goes into more detail in this Etsy News post: www.etsy.com/blog/news/2012/notes-from-chad-7/
When we make significant changes to the site, we'll announce what we've done, often on the Etsy News Blog, the Forums, or through other channels.
Thank you for your feedback thus far!
I am really bothered by the shipping info in the new layout.
I ship worldwide, but I only see "ships to United States for $..' - customers have to click on 'United States' to select another country, but I'm afraid that most will just assume I ONLY ship to the US.
Also not sure how I feel about the description being cut down. I know that would take priority for me over the materials and where it's made, which is right up top!
