Yes, there are some technical limitations when you are publishing a Gelato product as a new listing on Etsy:
- Etsy allows a max quantity of 999 for any given product
- Etsy allows a max quantity of 10 mockups for any given product
Product description limitations:
- Description must not be empty
- Description must not be more than 102,400 characters
- HTML tags are not allowed in the product description. Most likely, your product descriptions will look different on Etsy in comparison to your storefront but you can always change them directly on Etsy if you wish;
Product Title limitations:
- 140 character limit
- Titles must start with a letter or number (no special characters allowed as the first symbol/character, e.g. quotation marks).
- Titles cannot start with a space.
- The following characters may only be used once in a title: % : &.
- The following characters may not be used: $ ^ `. °
- Titles may not contain more than three words in capital letters.
- Please use both upper and lower case letters in your titles.
- Etsy can only accept up to 20 characters for each variation attribute (e.g. Size + Color);
- It is only possible for us to show all variations in one drop-down.
So by default, Color (Variation#1) & Size (Variation#2) data will be combined together.
For example: If you have a T-shirt with 2 colors (Black & White) and 2 sizes (S & M), on Etsy the listing will have only one drop-down menu with all four variations.
- Etsy can only take up to 70 variations for one given product and up to two product options.
Limitations regarding tags:
- You can use a maximum of 13 tags
- You must not have duplicated tags
- Tags cannot be longer than 20 characters.
- Tags may only contain letters, digits, hyphens, single quotes and spaces or underscores.
- Only Flat Rate Shipping is available for Etsy. We do not support Live-rate Shipping on Etsy at this time.
- The product price must be at least 0.20 USD and max 50,000 USD in the corresponding currency
IMPORTANT INFO: When creating an apparel item we cannot add the size guide due to the limitation on Etsy as it does not allow to add HTML table (or other HTML elements for table/image) to the description.
In this case, you can always copy and paste the size guides from our Product Catalog.
