How Do I Get Notifications from Etsy?

You can get notifications from the Etsy website or through the Sell on Etsy app. You can also get email notifications if you enable such alerts on your account. 

To get notifications, you must set preferences to receive alerts on your account. You can also turn on and toggle the Etsy notifications you prefer to receive. 

Why Am I Not Getting Etsy Notifications?

Etsy users may not be getting notifications if all alerts are disabled on their account. Such users will only get information about transactions, promotions, and other updates whenever they sign in. 

Also, some users might not get email notifications if their app sends emails to a spam folder. These users should add [email protected] to their contact list to receive important messages directly to their inbox. 

How Does Etsy Notify You of a Sale?

After a sale is complete, Etsy will send you an email notification containing important transaction details. You will also receive a notification on the Sell on Etsy app if you’ve installed it on your mobile. 

But you may not receive any of these notifications if you have disabled alerts in your account.

Do Customers Get Notified of Price Changes on Etsy?

Customers do not get notifications of price changes on Etsy. If an item is already in a buyer’s cart, they will not receive any messages if the seller adjusts pricing. 

Buyers will only be aware of any price changes when they check their cart. Information on their cart will show if an item has received a price adjustment.

Shoppers will have to pay the new price for that item when they proceed to checkout.  

How Do You Know If Your Order Went Through on Etsy?

You can get information on whether your order went through by signing in to your Etsy account. After signing in, go to Your Account (Web) or You (on the app).

Next, select Purchases and Reviews. You will see a list of all your orders on the Purchases page. 

Tap or click on any order to reveal its current shipping status. An Etsy order that hasn’t gone through will read as “Not Shipped” on your Purchases page. 

You will need to contact your seller to check the order status and confirm your order. Successful orders on Etsy will display as “Shipped”, then “In Transit”, and finally “Delivered” on your Purchases page. 

It’s better to request tracking information on your order to receive Etsy shipping notifications and monitor its transit to your location. 

Untracked orders may get lost in transit and may cause a problem. Sellers can also take advantage of tracking orders to know if their sold items have been safely delivered.
