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.
Step 1: Click the 'Create & Manage Sale Events' to View the Setup.
Step 2: Choose the shop sections to include, dates, discount and call-to-action banner and its position on the image.
Step 3: Click the 'Schedule Sale Event' or the 'Start Now' button.
Choose the 'Create & Manage Sales Events' tab to view your pending and active sales. Here you can edit or delete sales events that did not start yet and extend or stop active sales.
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.
The item detail page would look like this:
