Etsy is going to withdraw its integration with V2 APIs soon, and only leave the newer V3 version available. Once this occurs any stores connected using the Etsy-Gelato V2 integration will stop working, and you will need to upgrade your stores to V3 APIs for them to function. Affected stores will soon have a notification, and you will be able to upgrade following the simple steps below:
Note: All new stores created from the 20th of September are already using the new Etsy V3 APIs.
Important: There is no date announcement by Etsy but they are expecting to roll this out in Q4 2022 so it is important to upgrade as soon as possible.
How it works:
- Look for a prompt in the store listing and the store page;
- Click the “Update connection” button and you will be redirected to Etsy for re-authentication;
- Once approved, you will be redirected back to the Gelato store, and the upgrade will be complete.
Q: What’s the deadline from Etsy?
A: There is no exact date but according to their documents the plan is to officially sunset V2 during Q4 2022.
Q: What happens if I don’t upgrade?
A: As soon as the V2 API is sunset, if you have not upgraded to V3 API, the store connection between Gelato and Etsy will stop working.
Q: What impact will the upgradation have on existing connected products?
A: There will be no impact on the existing product connections. The upgrade should be seamless.
