Quantity Sync from Etsy

You can set Nembol to update your inventory quantities (number of items available for sale per each variant). By flagging “On” in “Quantity sync from Etsy”, Nembol will update all your connected e-commerce channels with the change of inventory in your Etsy account when you receive an order in Etsy.

Please Note:
 If you or a third-party app manually updates your inventory in Etsy, this change will NOT be reflected in Nembol nor in other channels. Only orders will trigger a change in inventory across channels.

List to Etsy

This is the most interesting and currently articulated group of settings. Under List to Etsy there are 8 settings:

1. State who made what you are selling. In compliance with Etsy rules, you need to state whether you, a member of your team, or another company/person has made the item you’re selling. By requiring sellers to state who made the product in a sale, Etsy ensures a product that is truly handmade, vintage, or unique, and not something mass-produced or manufactured.

2. State when the item was made. If you list an item that is not self-made it has to be older than 20 years. Etsy’s rule regarding vintage items states that they must be at least 20 years old. This means that in order to be considered vintage and sold on the platform, an item must have been manufactured or produced 20 years prior to the current date

3. State whether you want to set your listings as “active” or “draft”. Publishing as “drafts” you won’t be charged for the Etsy listing fees until you don’t decide to activate the listings. Publishing listings as “active” you get automatically charged the Etsy listing fees.

4. Flag “On” at the Craft supply setting, if you are selling supplies (tools, materials, ingredients, and parts, are all welcome to Etsy).

5. Set an automated pricing rule just for Etsy, i.e. set a % discount or % price raise what will change your prices only on Etsy listings. This setting will apply to all subsequent listings, but will also update your prices when you make an edit on the product in Nembol or you receive an order in Etsy. Check the Etsy price-adjust tutorial blog post.

6. Select your preferred Etsy Delivery profile. This setting will apply to all subsequent listings. Nembol gets your delivery profiles from your Etsy account.

7. Select the return policy to assign to your listings.

8. Select in which Etsy category you wish your items to be listed. Nembol makes it available for you to choose the categories you used for your latest 200 Etsy listings. Otherwise, you can leave the default *Automatic, and Nembol Artificial Intelligence will automatically assign listings to the best-fitting category, based on the category in the source channel or the product title.

9. Pick an Etsy shop section to list in.

Import from Etsy

Nembol is a powerful tool to share your existing Etsy listings on additional channels.

  1. As a first thing, you have to import your listings from Etsy into Nembol.
  2. Once your listings are in Nembol, you’ll be able to bulk-publish them on eBay, Amazon, Shopify, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Google Merchant Center (via .csv), and Instagram.

So let’s finish up our Etsy setup by looking at Etsy import settings.

Larger Nembol plans allow you to filter products by status you wish to import in Nembol and also from what of your Shop Sections.

These settings can be used in a few smart ways by proficient Etsy and Nembol users. For instance:

  • Create an Etsy collection dedicated to products you wish to share on other channels. 
  • Import only that section into Nembol and save $$ and time.
  • Import a specific section in Nembol, then list on a channels. Then change Etsy import setting and click import again. Now you’ll have a second group of listings in Nembol imported from Etsy.

Please note: Nembol will not import again the same items from the same channel, unless you previously deleted it from Nembol, therefore you’ll have no duplicates.

Edit listings in Etsy

Can you edit the listing on Etsy?

You can edit your products directly from your Etsy Store Manager and bulk update all the listings hosted in Nembol and on your other channels you’re currently selling on (this is optional).

Compared to the edit from the Shopify setting, there are two main differences to pay attention to:

  • First, the switcher is placed within the Etsy import settings.

  • Second, the edits are not applied automatically on listings but have to be imported by clicking on the “Get products” button.

How to use edit from Etsy?

Let’s see how to use this edit setting:

  1. Log to Nembol

  2. Click on settings next to the Etsy icon.

  3. Open the “import from Etsy” tab.

  4. Switch it ON the “import updates” function (as shown in the nearby image).

  5. Click on Save to use this setting.

  6. Edit your listings on Etsy.

  7. Open the Channels Tab.
