Announcing Etsy Weddings & Wedding Registry

Show Thread Summary

Thanks for answering questions on a Saturday, Engineering Team!

If a vintage or OOAK item is added to a registry and it sells, will the item remain in the registry and direct the shopper back to our shop, or just disappear from the list?
Hey guys, the tech team has been thrown to the wolves here to some extent. I really don't think they make the decisions regarding policy and they work weekends and evenings to get a project done all the time here. I know we are dying to have dialog with Etsy, but these are not the folks and I always got the impression they had little pull to help us out in those matters.

it looks great. are the registry categories results based on relevance? also, will there be plans to update the layout of the imagery if that's possible, maybe have a thumbnail view option or have larger images with a row or column of thumbnails below or next to it and repeated for all the larger images.

Yes, similar to the weddings category, the registry gift ideas are based on relevancy. Relevancy factors are based on multiple, relevant search results and aggregate shopping and browsing behavior.

If you're interested, you can learn more about optimizing your listings for relevancy here:

Thank you for your feedback about the images. While there are no immediate plans to change the layout, we will be doing some user testing.
hi Vernon,

I am using IE- When I hover over the drop down it shows up, but once I attempt to go down the list- it disappears- does that make sense?

I am aslo requesting that when one has completed looking at the 3 pages of listings that Etsy selected for each catagory, that you not put "The Are No More Listing To Show", but please put "Click Here to see More" with a radio button to the Catagories. It makes it look like those registering can only select from those 3 pages of listings for their registry.

Thank you :)
Really like this new feature. And my items made it to a few categories, so I think that means I am doing alright with my photos and tags. Can't wait til it gets expanded to a general wish list.
This is fabby!
Ok, its lovely however none of my items are showing, why have I been paying money for you to display my items when they are not appearing, please can someone look into this,
I love and GET the idea of trying to help the shoppers experience. I especially GET that sometimes people don't know what they are looking for and need inspiration. But my love of this idea stops there. As a reseller, this is a terrible change and in the end, leaves out MANY wonderful products and shops who will benefit the shopper at the end of the day. When you reach the end of the list it appears that's all that Etsy has to offer when I know there are thousands in my categories alone. What about renewing listings in the weddings category?? Why would we do that any longer? It seems to me that a lot of very important details have been left out and that this should be addressed immediately. Thank you!

I thought, *traditionally* bridal accessories (including dresses and jewelry) weren't included in a wedding gift registry. Maybe more appropriate for a bridal wishlist...which would be a very useful tool for the bride-to-be. Something to consider.
Sherri,
I was just thinking the same thing...is there a reason I should be paying to renew now? Does that factor into relevancy for the subcategories on the weddings page? If there was some kind of a link to the full subcategories, I could understand, but right now despite the fact that I've renewed several pieces this morning, its as if I don't exist in the weddings category anymore :(
