Need help with convo rules

If someone has added an item from my shop to their favourites and I put the item on sale is it okay to send them a convo to let them know about my sale.

No. Please don't.

Most would see it as spam and you could get reported.
nope, considered spam

you can convo people with questions, to tell them you featured them in a treasury, to talk, but not to offer sales, thank for hearts, or anything that promotes your shop if unsolicited.

alot of people add items to their favorites to save for treasuries, to show someone, because they like it, but never intend to purchase it.
Carol, I love your shop!
That is a really good question and thank you for helping me learn something new Carol ;)

Sorry, but what they are all saying is true. Just because someone favorites an item of yours, it doesn't give you the okay to send them a convo. I get that all the time, and it just angers those of us who adhere to the rules.
Thank you everyone for the help. I appreciate the advice and comments.
Yep, not only is it "considered" Spam, it's against etsy's rules.

For those who fave for Treasuries or just someone who faves a lot of things, can you imagine if everyone sent them a "deal" convo? For one thing, it would probably overload the etsy internal convo system! LOL!
