somethingextra...I just searched one of your items searching everywhere and it showed...it also showed up in the ship to US search as well
I just searched for "ring victorian tear drop" & found you in both the everywhere setting & the UK local search. I have my "ships to" set to the US. So you are exactly where you should be
ahhh, I didn't know that CindyLou. That makes it even worse. I dare say the majority of sellers are completely unaware that they have to update the locations for the new regional and local shopping filters to work in their shops.

If they don't inform the sellers, search results will be seriously lacking for buyers and all of this work is for naught.

I"m still seeing many many shops that have numerous locations listed for their location, they obviously are completely unaware. I still cannot believe Etsy has not informed its sellers of this.
The fast few months since changes have taken place are bad.
Not sure if international sellers should keep sell on Etsy,

I had a wonderful 3 years experience, but now I'm frustrated .
I hear you, galit. My sales have been shockingly bad. I've made some major changes with my photos, seo, consistent listing, promoting, etc over the last 6 months. I had anticipated a HUGE spring for me, but it never happened. And now sales have all but disappeared. I'm at a loss and don't know what to do next.

Why shouldn't we? We pay exactly the same fees to list our items, and exactly the same percentage when an item sells... The playing field is not level, it never was to begin with, but now it seems the hurdle just got a lot bigger, which is not fair to people outside the US at all.
I had 13 sales last June and only 7 this June. I have WAY more items listed, way better photos and better items too. I am on many teams, promote off site...these are all 'improvements' I've made over the last year. But it ended up meaning 50% of the sales. I really don't know where to cast any blame for it.....so confused.

Don't lose heart! I think things could easily pick up again after the postal strike is over. And here's hoping things get straightened out with this 'ships to' function soon, too!

ok, so I ship everywhere, so I think, from what I'm reading, my items will show up for everyone. If an American chooses US only on the FP link, they will still see my items because I ship there. right?

Admin, I would like this answered too, as simple yes or no, please

Hi,

Yup, that's correct.

If an American chooses a "United States" ship-to filter, then they will see items that ship to the US. If you've set up your shipping profile so that you ship to "everywhere", then that includes the US.
