|Quickly convert individual items to free shipping|
I went into each one and manually made the change. It took some time.
The back story is this: we moved recently. That is something that can be difficult for those of us who sell vintage. Why? Our buying far outpaced our selling.
We collected too much stuff. Moving and organizing it is a lot of work. Especially with a roomful if extra items laying around, mixed in.
I lost a couple of orders. Yikes. We decided to do a full inventory, pulling every item and checking it off a list. This was helpful, identifying some errors.
As we inventoried, I realized that I could convert many listings over to free shipping right then. I just needed to do it quickly... keeping up with the inventory process (my husband checking off items on a big Excel chart).

Set up a FREE shipping profile
Set up a "free shipping" profile from within "Listings." Then it is easy to convert individual listings. Open it and then one click. Even easier, use the "Quick Edit" feature from within Listings.
|Switching is easy-peasy. Use the "Quick Edit" screen|
Doing it this way makes the change a permanent thing, not a limited-time promotion. Note that Etsy will not set up a separate “sale” section to your shop. For some that is a disadvantage. Others prefer to have no added shop section.
There, that was easy, right? Have a great selling day!
