You love sales and your customers love sales – so let’s talk sales today! Recently, Etsy rolled out a new tool for scheduling sales. Previously, Etsy sellers had to manually set up sales on the day of the sale or use a third party tool like Etsy on Sale (see more in this post). Now, let’s take a look at how the tool works.

I think that Etsy’s new sale tool is easy for sellers to use and is a great addition to their site. The one downfall was that I didn’t see a way to schedule a sale with multiple percentages off depending on the products chosen. To do this, I simply created a second sale to run at the same time.

Before you go, Etsy is holding a site wide Labor Day sale! Get more information at this link – but hurry – the deadline to schedule your sale is today (August 22nd).

Psst! Watch my Etsy Shop from August 31st to September 4th for a Labor Day sale featuring 15% to 70% off select products while supplies last!
