We appreciate your feedback, and you're welcome to start a new thread to discuss this. However, I need to ask that you avoid discussing specific listings, shops or members of the Etsy community in a negative fashion, and so I need to bring this particular one to a close. Let's stay away from demonstrating methods of how to find listings or shops that may be violating our policies.

If you see an item that you think may not meet our criteria for what can be sold, feel free to use our site-wide flagging tool. Due to privacy reasons, we can’t comment on reported listings or shops, but we can assure you that we will review each report and, if we see a concern, take the appropriate action.

We can’t reveal details about other members’ accounts, but we can say that when we reach out to sellers about their handmade processes, many of them are able to effectively communicate to us that their items do qualify to be sold on Etsy. Keep in mind that according to our DOs and DON’Ts, "On Etsy, the term 'handmade' can additionally be interpreted as 'hand-assembled' or 'hand-altered.'" You can read more about this here:


If you're interested in finding out more about what happens when we receive reports and how we determine whether items meet Etsy's criteria, please read this post from the Etsy Blog: www.etsy.com/blog/news/2012/a-closer-look-into-marketplace-integrity/

Lastly, you can find our policies for the Etsy Forums here:
