Esy On Sale-Quick And Easy Way To Put Your Listings On Sale!

Every Etsy sellers dream....a way to put items on sale quickly and easily! This website, Etsy On Sale, allows you to put a shop section on sale. It simply uses Etsy API to edit your listings for you. I tried it myself and it works great!
So here's how it's done.

Go to Etsy On Sale, at the top right corner, click "Sellers".
Click "Sign In" with your google account (or watch the demo video below it instead). After signing in with google, you will be asked to set a time zone, and to allow Etsy Access. This is necessary in order for the site to be able to use Etsy's API to edit your listings for you.

Now you will be taken to a page that tells you to choose a shop, and you will see your shop banner. Click it!
Next you'll go to your dashboard. To create a sale, click "Sale Events".
After clicking that, click "Create New Sale". Follow the instructions on that page. You will be able to name your sale (this won't show up anywhere on Etsy, it's just a way to keep track of your sale events on your dashboard), choose a shop section you want to put on sale, choose a start and end date, a certain amount of $ or a percentage off your item prices, and also a title that will appear at the beginning of your listings.
When you're done, click "Schedule Sales Event".

And that's it! Now you will see your sale event on your dashboard like this:

One thing though. When it's time for the sale to start, give it 10 minutes to begin. That is how long it takes for the site to edit your listings.
So in other words, if you schedule a sales event for 4 PM, it will start at about 10 minutes after.

For more info, simply visit and watch the demo to find out how it's done.

Have fun, and I hope this saves you a lot of time!

Oh, and just so you know, I used this to put my manly sports bookmarks on sale at 25% off! Manly bookmarks for boys and men.

Thanks very much, this helped. Hopefully the EtsyonSale site will contribute to many more sales in the future!

How does the added title impinge on the SEO aspect of the titles?

I've been on Etsy over two years and sales have never worked. I've also offered percentages off for special occasions but that did not work either. I'm not so sure sales on handmade is a grand idea anyway; handmade means one works hard and rarely sells at a decent price, never taking even the minimum wage into consideration in the pricing formula.
Sales are selling oneself short, imo.

If you feel you are loosing so much money doing sales, than they are probably not for you:)

I recently started a free shipping sale (not with the Etsy On Sale app though) and a few people took advantage of it. I was not loosing much money and it seemed worth it to me.

Some people don't do well with sales, and others do really really well. It all depends on what works best for you.

As for SEO, I don't think it has a negative effect (especially if people are googeling sale items). I would prefer to put the sale announcement at the end of my titles though, so I'm hoping to see a few more options with this app in the future.
