Flag a Review or Review Response for Policy Violation

Note: The time period buyers will have to open a case or leave a review will be changing soon. For more information, please review this article.

You can flag a review, a photograph within a review, or a review response for removal for the following reasons:

  • It violates your privacy.

  • It is obscene, racist, or harassing.

  • It contains advertising or spam.

  • The review is about Etsy or a third party.

If a review or review response is in violation of Etsy's rules, we may remove it.
