soap...any echecks I've received through paypal do not show as paid on Etsy. They show in the Not Paid section.
But what about e-checks paid via PayPal? Those appear as paid on Etsy as soon as the PP transaction is made/noted by Etsy, right?

Since Etsy includes holidays as "business" days, would it include messaging showing those days might impact the turnaround time stated?


e-checks paid via PayPal are not marked as paid on Etsy until the payment clears.

We don't currently have any messaging about factoring in holidays, but it's something we're considering.
Thanks, Trish and Eric re: echeck payments.

Would appreciate messaging factoring in holidays :)

Thanks for the quick replies.
I am excited for this change.
One question that wasn't covered yet:

Are processing "days" based on 24 hour periods or calendar days? For example, let's say my processing time is "ships in 1 business day" and it is Wednesday.

If I get an order at 12:01am on Wed. and another order at 11:59pm the same day, would they both see the same Ships On date of Thursday?
Eric posted the clock is Etsy calendar day/time (Eastern in the US).
Thanks, soap.
I currently have my lead/turnaround time in my Shop listed as 10-12 business days but when I try to use the prototype I cannot enter anything higher than 10 business days, will this stay this way or will it be changed?

And....maybe I'm cross eyed from crocheting all day but for the life of me I cannot find the bulk editing option.......can someone point me in the right direction?
10 is the maximum number they have allowed for input.
However, you could switch to weeks and use 1-2 weeks. It's not perfect, but it will work.

The bulk editor is currently only available to members of the shipping improvements team.

Thanks Lisa! No, it's not perfect but it's still a GREAT tool. I am a member of the shipping improvements team but I haven't a clue where to find the bulk editor. Today has been a long day which may be why I can't find it.
Ah, it's on your listings page.. top right hand corner.. blue 'bulk edit shipping" button
