Just so you know...

Not sure where to post this but just so you know...

The new quantities drop down menu when posted on Twitter makes it look like there are some great bargains available!

For example when an item is priced at €15 and there are 2 available, and you open the photos attached to a tweet, under the title on the photos it says '2 for 15.00 EUR'.

Very misleading advertising.

We've investigated this issue, and have been able to determine that it's due largely to the way that Twitter works. It looks like this is something that they'll have to fix or otherwise change on their end. I'm sorry that I don't have better news!

Hi Alma,

Is there any way you can send us a screen shot of that? I haven't heard of this before and it certainly doesn't sound accurate. You can send it along to community@etsy.com. We'll investigate from there.

Thanks much!
Alma, you are so right!

@Leslie - Don't know how to do screen shots but here is a copy and paste of the text for one of my Tweets:

Fun Kids Clothes Matching Sister Twirl Dresses Colorful Tiered Girls Dress Toddler Sundress sizes 2T 3T 4T Girls 5 6 7 8 Children's Clothing
5 for $46.00
"2 for 15.00 Eur"
"5 for $46.00"

Surely this could have been formatted as "2 at 15.00 Eur each" and "5 at $46.00 each."

Doesn't anyone review these things before features go live?
I sent in a screen shot. Ugh. Hope this is fixed soon please.
Hello,

Well, I certainly see what you're talking about now! I will let our tech team know so they can work on a fix!

Thanks for reporting in bugs!
Thanks Leslie! :)
Two weeks later, this problem is still occurring with multiple quantity tweets.

Thanks Rob. I will try to remember to put in text the correct info until it changes.
