Not cool. That is like telling the buyer that the seller has all the power because they have Etsy host them.Not cool at all

I love Etsy and there are SO many great WAHM's on there but this stinks.

This is a general aside, but I wish who this is could be outed. That it has happened to several mothers just makes me not want to purchase anything from Etsy for fear of being burned. That's not fair to the honest sellers. I get where the outing rules come from here, I do, but stories like this just make me more hesitant to buy at all and that sucks. For everyone, especially the mamas whose every sale means something to their family.

Well at least we know this seller has a negative feedback to warn you.

If you find a seller on Etsy that you'd like to purchase from, you can always google to see if it's possible to purchase anywhere else. Some sellers have another website, or something set up on HC, or if they advertise on DS they can take an order over PM.

I wasn't able to leave her feedback because she cancelled my transaction so that I couldn't. I contacted Etsy about it and they just didn't seem to care. I WANTED to leave her negative because family tragedy or not, the lying started waaaaaay before that.

I did however file a JAR, and I think EVERYONE else should too

FWIW, I think that every time someone is brave enough to leave the negative feeback that was so graciously earned.....it gives another customer the courage to do the same....and eventually her business practices will change or she just won't have a business anymore.

I host my shop on Etsy and this kind of thing makes me furious. They have received multiple complaints......it's time they do something about it

Re: Does Etsy allow retalitory FB?

thats actually a good idea mama! I think i just might have to do that today, i saw a couple against her in there recently

FWIW she was giving poor service before the tragedy occurred, so its not even close to an excuse IMO

Yeah that except I use Etsy frequently and now I don't want to. That's freaking ridiculous.

Re: Does Etsy allow retalitory FB?

Im on Etsy and newer at it. I had a pretty nasty experience with a seller not too long ago. I was sent a very poorly made item. When I contacted them about it, I got attitude and was not given a solution at all, just told, that is the way we make said item. So I went ahead and left negative feedback, THEN they wanted to refund me, which I agreed to, they initiated the kiss and make up thing and I left a positive but noted, "I was unhappy with item, seller refunded my money after exchanging multiple messages". I was not the only person to leave negative feedback (some had the same issue as me). They were not going to leave me any feedback (or could have very well tried to leave me negative and I am a new seller and didnt want the negative, it really stunk, they deserved the BIG FAT RED NEGATIVE)

Etsy allows retalitory feedback though and I hate it, they also allow the seller and buyer to "kiss and make up". Sometimes I hate Etsy for the way they run their feedback and other things they do. :/

I heard about this from others- I really admire that you're leaving the FB up because people need to know! I know it sucks to get neg for yourself, but you're doing everyone a service.

I agree %100. I'm so tired of reading stories like this and not knowing who it is or who I should avoid. I like the way Hyena Cart is set up better anyways, but stuff like this makes me scared to even consider buying stuff from etsy. If somebody dares I wouldn't mind a PM as to who it is so I can save myself the time, money and hassle of not dealing with said person.
