Etsy's new feedback system and Craftinest

Hi everyone,
hope you all had a wonderful labor day!

I am sure many of you have heard etsy has changed its feedback system. Now etsy will ask a series of questions to the buyer for them to rate their experience . It will be a star system, from 1 star to 5 stars, with 5 stars being perfect.
A lot of sellers are worried that they will get poorer reviews  based on the idea nothing is perfect!...That may well be the case, that doesn't bother me. I have been so blessed to have such sweet customers. But the part that makes me sad is sellers can no longer leave feeback to their customers! I hate that...I always enjoyed letting my customers know how much I appreciated their business.
I do worry that etsy is starting to  become more like ebay....that would be a shame!
What do you think?
I did see a new selling site called Craftinest. Have you heard of it?
To get a store you must have one hundred 5 star reviews of your products from voters.
Not sure how that will work...hmm, we'll see.
I thought I would give it a shot.
If you are by their site I would appreciate your vote and if you sign up to sell there let me know and I will vote for you too!
Here is the link
Thanks and Hugs!


  1. Hello Dana,
    wonderful Works you made again! Always wonderful!
    I checked this new place and gave you my vote ;O)
    Happy week to you,
    and big hugs

  2. Many people were dismayed by etsy feedback changes.

    I think leaving a buyer feedback was a thank you for shopping here message.


  3. Etsy sagt mir hier in Deutschland leider nichts.
    Bei Amazon kann man auch weltweit verkaufen. Aber wie es dort funktioniert weiß ich leider nicht.

    Tolle Arbeiten wie immer ,einfach traumhaft schön.
    Stolz kann ich berichten ich habe nun auch meine aller erste Rose geschafft.
    Liebe Grüße Birgit aus Deutschland

  4. I like the new rating system on etsy. When I have purchased items through etsy that were not up to snuff or were not as described (I'm not a picky person at all) and I left a neutral, the seller felt the need to leave me negative even though they were paid right away and had no reason to leave me negative other than to be vindictive. I think it will help to make some sellers more honest in how they do business. If sellers want to leave their customer a thank you, they can still use the convo feature.

  5. Dearest Dana,

    lovely box has created by you. Oh my, apologize I have no idea how etsy works.
    anyway, wishing you a great time
