Create a Sale on Etsy

There are basically two options for creating a sale on Etsy. You can either use Etsy's built-in mechanism for setting your items on sale or you can use our system to discount your items.

The benefits of setting a sale through EtsyMarketingTool is that in addition to marking down your item prices, you can add a banner or a badge of your own, to highlight the fact that you are running a sale.

Setting up a sale event is not a guarantee to win many more sales. However, it is definitely something you should consider during high-holidays, on weekends and every once in a while.

We offer our own sale banners, but you can upload your own banner as well. Uploaded banners can be in PNG format with transparent background, so they are only limited by your own imagination. You can also define the location of the banner over your main image (you can choose between few pre-defined placements).

Our Sale Manager feature is a robust and easy-to-use tool. It is offered to all our members, whether they are on their trial period or paying members, with no additional cost.

Here are few of the banners some of our members uploaded when they set their sale events with EtsyMarketingTool:

Here you can learn how to set up and manage your sales events, what options are available for you and how discounted items look like.

Few things to know about our Etsy-on-Sale tool:

  • Running a sale event does not increase your Etsy bill.
  • Sales events can be scheduled in advance to any future date and can run for up to 30 days.
  • You can choose what shop sections to include in the sale.
  • You can choose what items to exclude from the sale.
  • You can choose what call-to-action banner to add to your main image. There are few options to choose from.
    This will serve as an added incentive to make a purchase. Example:
  • You can choose where the banner will be positioned on the image.
  • You can stop a sale event once it is active. Our system will then start reverting back the prices and titles of the discounted items. The banner we added will be removed and the original image loaded.
  • Stopped events can be restarted.
  • While a sale event is active, you can extend its end date.
  • When setting up a sale event, you can request to receive an email alert when a sale has started or ended.
  • When setting up a sale event, you can request to receive text messages to notify you when a sale has started or ended.

Your Discounted Items

  • The price of items that participate in a sale event is reduced based on the discount you have set. If you have decided to add a call-to-action banner, it will be added at the position you chose, and will also help distinguish your items from other search results.

    You can choose where the banner will be positioned on the image: above image, on-top, middle, 3/4 down or bottom.
