My Custom Requests

Etsy recently introduced a new way for sellers to show that they take custom orders.  With this new feature, you're able to communicate with the potential shopper so they can ask questions and you can get all the details you need. Once everything is all ironed out, you can create a private listing just for them.  With a "private" listing, no one but the shopper can buy or even see the listing. 

Unfortunately, you're only allowed to upload one picture at this time, so make it a good one.  If a picture isn't possible, most Etsians use "reserved listing" or "custom" signs specifically made for their shop like below. 


Here's mine.  Did I go too far?

  1. Only the buyer gets to see the listing, so the graphic isn't too important, I guess. Your graphic is just fine.
    I like having the public be able to see the custom requested orders, because it gives examples of your work.

  2. Hi Nichole,
    because of my other work obligations I currently don't offer custom orders. Of course there are always requests and if the timing is right I accept them! I usually put up a reserved listing button. Your image looks so stylish - just like your items :)
