not against the law in some countries....


~~~Not sure that I've heard of a country that doesn't mind falsified documents when buyer's import goods, and even if it's not illegal from some country to send a package that way, it's not legal to receive it that way as the purpose is tax evasion.




customduo--are you decorating those goods yourself? If so, you should be fine so long as you provide the documentation they've asked for. (Be sure the email came from an etsy.com address before responding.)

And actually what I thought when I read the announcement was that the OP meant to say that these are their designs and hand studded is better quality than factory made, but the translation came out wrong....

That's what I assumed.

I think esty should put in that feature everyone was talking about where you can put photos of your studio on your page. Then the customer can decide. Oh and if you see a clean studio then you know that's a lie ;)
-------------------------------------

I don't understand why Etsy should have such a feature and why this proposal is coming up so often in the fora.

A larg group of sellers don't play it by the Etsy rules, I know, but that does not mean that hundred of thousands of others have to prove that they are honoust.

I would love to show my workspace. It's cool (though not tidy).

Having a space to do that would be awesome.

It is allowable to put studs on a shoe and then sell it as handmade.

But in their policies they clearly say "My custom design converse are 100% handmade." and also the materials say 'canvas' and 'stud".

So if they are claiming the items are '100% handmade', this may be why they are now being asked to prove it.

CUSTOMDUO products all process by hand of expert designers
+++++++
probably cos they are designed not handmade by....
------------------------------
"...all process by hand..."
I think this means the decoration is made by hand by "expert designers". Their English is really awful, but what I read, to me is still understandable as these items being allowed on Etsy. (that seems to be a horrible piece of English, too, but maybe that is why I understand their Googlish :D )

Kim: Your listing imply there is more than one person working with the items ("expert designers" means more than one). If this is true, you have to write in your shop how many people are working in the shop, and what they are doing.

Hi all,

I'll go ahead and close this one since it is a private matter between Etsy and the account in question. Please do follow through with Etsy and answer their emails in detail. Hopefully the issues can be resolved quickly. Thanks all!
