---------------------------
Etsy doesn't allow the ability to put a link on pictures uploaded to your Etsy shop. Linking TO your etsy shop from a website requires two simple html commands. Your website developer can either do it for you or show you how.
<a href="www.juzodesign.com"> so hyperlinking is not possible?

Within your shop, only an on-Etsy page will show up as an active link. Any other URL will have to be copied and pasted into the browser window. You can have an active link to your website from your "about" page.

It's not possible to use HTML on Etsy -- It's a security issue. So, no, nothing that needs HTML will work.

And, as has been said, if you sell the same thing on your website that you sell on Etsy, it's against the TOUs to link or give the URL.





As it takes quite a bit of effort to get people on to your listing, usually you will not be wanting them to click away again... at least until after they have bought!
