Hi Claire - are you resetting it at the bottom of the Etsy page?

You don't appear to have a shop, actually - you have buyer account. You need to click on 'Sell' at the top of the page to open your shop.
yep...what ClosetGothic says
I want to keep mine in $'s, but when signing in, I keep getting a big black band at the bottom, saying that Etsy want to change my items to £'s, which I don't want. How can I get rid of this blinking band once and for all?

HI EVERYONE! MY NAME IS DAVID, AND I'M TRYING TO COMPLETE MY VERY FIRST LISTING AS A SELLER. PROBLEM IS THAT MY PHOTOS ARE OF LARGE VERY INTRICATELY COLORED ART GLASS PAPERWEIGHTS, AND I THINK THEY HAVE TOO MANY PIXELS.

CAN ANYBODY EXPLAIN TO ME THE PROCESS OF POSTING A PHOTO ON A NEW LISTING? I'VE BEEN AT IT FOR ALMOST 3 HOURS WITH NO LUCK. THANK YOU.

Hi David - it doesn't look like you have a shop yet either! Click On 'Sell' at the top of the page to open a shop.

For your photos - from Etsy's 'Help' menu:

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP. PERHAPS I CAN GET IT THIS TIME. CHEERS!
Hi Claire, when you have your shop set up, click on Your Shop at the top of the page. Then on the left hand side, under Shop Settings, click on Shipping & Payment. Choose the currency tab to change to British Pounds GBP.

Good luck!

Claire, as everyone says it sounds like you want to set a price for something to sell, but you are a buyer not a seller.

So I am going to assume you want to see prices in UK pounds.
This is done as a buyer two ways,
1.
Go to top of page and klick on the tab called your account.
2. When that comes up klick on the tab called preferences and when that comes up set the ones you want.
Second way
Go to the lower left bottom of this page.
Right after the words 2012 Etsy, inc in blue writhing is something like
Langage xxxx/ Money xxxx/ location/xxxx
Klick on each one of them and a drop down should come up letting you select something new.
thank you so much, it definitely helped me! as I'm a buyer not a seller :)
Hi, I have a shop and I am trying to set up my first listing - my shop is not open yet as I cannot set up the first listing. but when I want to put the price of my listing in pounds but it is in dollars - I have tried everything here and nothing will work :(
