Occasionally, the company updates categories and item attributes to enable sellers to classify and describe their products better and make it easier for buyers to find items on the online marketplace.
New Etsy Home & Living Categories
Etsy added three new categories to the Home & Living category:
- Mug Rugs
- Desk Name Plates
New Etsy Craft Machine Files Categories
Etsy added four new categories to the Craft Machine files category:
- 3D Printer Files
- Cutting Machine Files
- Embroidery Machine Files
- Knitting Machine Files
New Etsy Roller Skate Accessories Categories
Etsy added two new categories to the Roller Skate Accessories category:
- Skate Leashes
- Toe Guards
The company said it will automatically move relevant listings to the new categories, but we caution that sellers should do this themselves to ensure their items are listed in the right category.
This Etsy May category update follows one the company released in February covering Cooking Utensils and Gadgets Sub-Categories.
Sellers that may have missed previous updates can check out the complete list of categories and subcategories available on the Etsy Marketplace here.
Etsy sellers can also learn more about maximizing the use of categories and attributes from the Etsy Seller Handbook.
