It usually takes Etsy 12-24 hours to completely create the listing.
It may also take up to 24 hours for listings to be indexed into search results and categories.
When we create variation listings on Etsy they are created with only one drop-down option.
So by default, we will combine the Color (Variation#1) & Size (Variation#2) data, that you may have in Shopify, 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 and give a buyer the options of:
Etsy can only accept up to 20 characters for each variation attribute (Size + Color);
Etsy can only take up to 70 variations for one given product;
If you have more than 70 variants for a product in Shopify, Etsy will not list the product at all;
Etsy can only accept 999 quantity as a max. for any given product;
Product Titles have a 140 character limit;
- Your images should be at least 1000 pixels wide, the height can vary. JPEG is the image format that Etsy likes;
- IMPORTANT: Please do not use the button for Etsy channel more frequently than once per 2 hours. We recommend not using it at all and wait for the automatic update that happens every 5 hours on average. Updating your Etsy channel too frequently may lead to the discrepancies on the marketplace side.
