A rip-off site. Fake merh sold by suspicious people who won’t ship your purchases.

You misspelled 'meth,' OP.

I meant merch but my fucking spell correct fucked up

I've ordered a few things from Etsy and never had a problem with anyone I ordered from.

by Anonymousreply 305/23/2020

Sorry, OP, if you had a problem.

That has not been my problem and I've bought several things from etsy over time from multiple sellers.

Did you check the reviews for the vendor you used?

^ should be "my experience", not "my problem".

No problem with Etsy Plenty of problems with Amazon crap that ships directly from China.

by Anonymousreply 605/23/2020

It’s all crap. Just find a trusted person who seeks the best crap, and buy it from them.

Never again will I spend 3K on a freakin’ purse, or 5K on a business suit for work. I have done so several times when making decent money, & saved for some purchases. I cannot do this any longer, nor do I need to. Plenty of great merch can be found if one knows where to look, and one doesn’t need to blow thousands of dollars to get well made merchandise.

I've ordered several things from Etsy and all went well. I find cool craft things for my mom all the time, and haven't had any problems yet.

I've bought a number of great hats on Etsy at very reasonable prices. I wear hats daily - no, not balding. (Yet) - so this was a great find. I originally thought Etsy was a frauen site but, no, there's plenty there for the discerning gent

Then don't buy the fake merch. I order masks, bags, and other items obviously made by the sellers and have never had a problem with anything not arriving.

Ditto on Amazon China. Ordered in April 2020. Last possible due date late June 2020.

Amazon website says it has not arrived yet. Package showed up early May. Trace shows package at USPS Chino, CA.

I ordered Impeach Trump Flip Flops from Etsy. No problems.

I've been scammed twice by Chinese sellers on Amazon. Was refunded by Amazon (after a considerable delay) on one transaction.

Etsy is one of the more reliable internet merchants, I’ve found. My first purchase from Etsy was more than ten years ago. My most recent purchase was a handmade mask, last month. If you read each crafter’s description carefully, look at reviews, etc., you can do very well with Etsy.

Agree about Amazon’s China merch.

I bought tie-dyed t-shirts from an old hippie lady on Etsy 15 years ago. They are the most beautiful tie-dyes I have ever seen, and genuinely trippy. Also she would make them on requested designs and colors. I wore them to hippie lux watering holes in the Mediterranean and sent a lot of business to this person who has since retired. Where else but Etsy would I ever have found such a crafts person.

by Anonymousreply 1505/24/2020

I haven't had a problem with Etsy, over the years I've bought items there a half dozen times, maybe more.

I think the OP is likely the problem here. It's lockdown, OP. There are lots of people who are in hard quarantine and/or dead and/or in mourning.

Tell us more. What did you order and what state and city did you order it from?

I found this guy on Etsy. I want him to make the bed frame linked below, without the headboard, just the wood border going all the way around.

A lot of sites that are portals through which anyone can set up a shop (Amazon Affiliates, Etsy, Storenvy, etc) have been inundated with Chinese scammers who either (1) won't ship but instead provide you with a fake Yanwen tracking number or mark it as "shipped" without ever sending it, or (2) will ship you a cheap, poorly made or counterfeit item. I got burnt once or twice, contacted the sellers through the Amazon system and told them bluntly that I know that the item had never shipped and that I was provided a fake tracking number. They immediately offered the refund with no further back-and-forth. I was dumb for not scrutinizing their feedback before ordering; there, I discovered that it was a pattern with those sellers, but "they offered refunds" so the feedback was not exclusively negative. My question to those who understand better how the scam works: if the scam is to charge you for something and never ship it, knowing that they'll have to refund you eventually, what exactly is their endgame?

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
