Are there any limitations to publishing listings on Etsy?

Yes, there are some technical limitations when you are publishing a Gelato product as a new listing on Etsy:

  • Etsy can only accept 999 quantity as a max. for any given product;
  • Product Titles 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 cannot start with a space. The 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 all capital letters. Please use both upper and lower case letters in your titles.
  • When we create variation listings on Etsy they are created with only one drop-down option.
    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.
  • Etsy can only accept up to 20 characters for each variation attribute (e.g. Size + Color);
  • Etsy can only take up to 70 variations for one given product and up to two product options.
  • The description can't be empty and can't be more than 102,400 characters
  • Etsy does not allow HTML tags 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;
  • Etsy also has some more limitations for tags: you can use max. 13 tags.  You may not have duplicated tags and tags cannot be longer than 20 characters.
  • Only Fixed Rate Shipping is available for Etsy. We do not support Calculated Shipping on Etsy at this time.
  • Price related limitations: The price must be at least 0.20 USD and max 50,000 USD in corresponding currency
