Sellers Tire of Etsy Poaching

“Here are some other items from other sellers”

This seller perfectly sums up Etsy poaching:

Here’s how I feel about all this, in a nut shell…..
Etsy does not bring buyers to our shops (aside from a very small amount of accidental overflow through a messed up internal search attempt), we have to find buyers ourselves. That is fine – we pay for the right to display our products on their site, for a small fee. They are just a venue. It is also a tremendous time suck and hit-or-miss undertaking with no promise of the hard work of finding customers panning out. If we can’t find our buyers, we have little, if any, chance of succeeding. To have the “venue” that you pay rent to arbitrarily syphon off our efforts of getting buyers into our shops, and then redirect them to our competition, is highway robbery in my book. Those buyers belong to the person who found them, since we have to harvest them. The venue obviously feels otherwise, for what reason, I cannot imagine. To have the venue help themselves and send them to our competition crosses so many ethical lines, I can hardly talk about it. There are a lot of things happening here that I think cross the line of ethics in so many ways…but as long as people, myself included, tolerate it, it will not change. It weighs heavily on me and as soon as I figure out an alternative market for my products, I will head there – pronto!

Beyond Frustration

Etsy Seller has stolen my Pic!

Another seller here on Etsy has stolen my pic (of me wearing one of my items!) I’ve contacted her & asked her to take it down & I’ve contacted Etsy Support. I haven’t received a response from either party & it’s been almost 5 days. In the meantime my photo is still on the front page of her listing. To be completely honest it’s really pissing me off! And Etsy has done nothing! Which is also pissing me off; we should be able to turn to Etsy for help in situations like this. Does anyone have any idea what I can do? I’ve had this happen before but it was on EBay. EBay made them take it down right away. I’m just so frustrated with Etsy right now!

Etsy hasn’t even bothered to respond to my message or my “report this shop”. It’s like Etsy Support doesn’t even exist!
…I’ve done everything I can. I’ve filed the DCMA takedown notice, I’ve messaged the seller twice & reported the shop twice to Etsy. I haven’t received any replies from the shop owner or Etsy. I’m beyond frustrated. Etsy is just ignoring me.
Why didn’t Etsy Support answer the first message from this customer and let her know how to proceed?? 

Etsy Buyer Protection?

This is a legitimate complaint from a new buyer. Instead of Administrative Support stepping up to the plate and answering the question, it is again left up to sellers to make excuses for Etsy’s misleading policies.

Having trouble understanding where “Buyer Protection” is

From Etsy’s Buyer Protection Help Pages:

Etsy has several teams dedicated to preventing fraud in our marketplace.

Where are these teams? And what do they do all day???? 

New purchase–possible scam

What do I do If I’ve been sold fake merchandise?

Refund for fake items bought

The product that I’ve bought is not what was advertised and I feel conned

Fraud?

I didnt receive what i bought!

If Etsy wants to play with the big boy sites it is imitating, it will need real customer support, not the failing system currently in place.

ETA:  From another mad buyer – WARNING: VERY EXPLICIT LANGUAGE!
