Congrats, Dev!
Please keep me informed, while I do not make keycards and can't keep you from being locked out of the bathroom. I can give you extensive info. on the balancing act between your brick and morter wholesale accounts vs. your selling items retail. I have suceeded in both and have a 30 year background on it. There is a wonderful way to do both and have it be sucessful and build your brand at the same time.
Welcome Dev! I do currently sell wholesale here on Etsy by giving my wholesale customer a coupon code. But, it does get complicated at times as I have different discounts for different quantity/price points. I'm looking forward to hearing what's in store for wholesale here on Etsy.

DT: One of our goals is to organize and formalize all the wholesale activity that already does take place on Etsy. Removing all the inefficiencies will be a major first step.

Would Etsy provide more information or a series of posts on Seller Handbook, to help newbie shops like mine work towards setting up successfully for wholesale sales?

DT: Another one of our goals is to make Seller Education around Wholesale a focus and priority. We're going to make wholesale fun and take the scariness out of it completely.

Dev, you are very funny and looks like you will be easy to work with.

DT: Shucks, thanks. This is going to be fun.
I'm enjoying all the exciting new changes happening on Etsy....no extra listing fees for multiple items; the wedding registry; your efforts to help us in wholesale; etc. Welcome aboard, Dev!
Welcome Dev !

Back in my brick and morter days (or steel and wheels) wholesale was always an option for me.
I have been prodded by team mates here to work up some wholesale listings and guidelines within my shop.

I await with bated breath to see what Etsy sorts out in this regard
I do offer wholesale listings in my other shop... here is a sample listing:
www.etsy.com/listing/82234780/wholesale-hair-accessories-or-rose

I would LOVE to have etsy marketing avenues for these types of listings--- I think I'd probably sell more of them!
I have a wholesale/fundraising program available now off of etsy and would like to introduce into my store but have wanted to make sure this is an ok to do. I had my shop on vacation for about 2 years while caring for a family member and have recently reopened my shop and see that there has been many changes on etsy to catch up on!
I sell wholesale, but how did I not know about Trunkt?!? Looking into this now!
Congrats on the move with Etsy! As a Trunkt member, it's nice to know the process when complete will be easier as often wholesale sales are being made through etsy. I haven't had the time to read all the questions, responses...some questions I have...will there be any benefit for those of us who have already been members of Trunkt? I do like the idea of the etsy as is and perhaps a section that is for wholesale so the wholesale section isn't taken advantage of by resellers or those who try to resell handmade as their own. A validation for the B&M to enter their resale/retail number? Will there be the availability of a tiered wholesale pricing and shipping charges?

Will more announcements and advancements be emailed to current Trunkt members? I read how the info was put out there before an announcement and kind of stumbled upon the information.

Congrats again and looking forward to the new developments!
