Learn how to avoid and correct errors you receive when connecting Etsy or creating Etsy listings
1. "Oh dear, you cannot sell this item on Etsy"
If the product is not handmade, vintage, or a craft item, then this error may be indicating there's something wrong with the way the listing details are setup
- If you say your item is made by someone else but it's not a supply or craft tool (which may be the case with your listing). Etsy expects you to make your items yourself, except when it's a supply or craft tool.
- When you choose a supply or craft tool category for your item, and still indicate it as not a supply or craft tool.
2. "Connection error: %d is not a valid shop_id"
This error occurs because you do not have a shop_id on Etsy yet. To fix, continue with your Etsy store set-up until it is fully set up. Then, disconnect your Etsy channel in Sellbrite and reconnect it again.
