Part 5 involves your shop’s story.

Why did you decide to open up shop, what is your day to day operations look like, here do you find your inspiration? These are all great questions to answer in your shop story section. 

You will need to come up with a catchy headline as well.
You can get to the shop story by clicking “Your Shop” then “Shop Setting” next “About Your Shop” and finally click on “Story” at the top of the screen.

This is also where you will find the place to add your shop video.

 Your shop video is your chance to connect with your potential customers. They can see who you are and if you choose see the workspace where their items will be crafted.

The video can be in a format of MOV, MPEG, Avi, mp4 or m4v and you have 300 MB to showcase you!

Etsy also has help for you on the Sell On Etsy app, which can be found in the App Store on your phone or tablet.

I strongly recommend downloading the Sell On Etsy app to stay on top of your shop while on the go.

At the end of this page, you can add up to 5 shop pictures.

You have the option to include a short caption for each picture. You can take pictures of your workspace, maybe some of your best selling products, or your product delivery presentation.

These pictures need to be 760px by 468px.

The camera that I use and recommend it to beginners who want to take great pictures.

Make sure that you have good lighting and staging. You want to display your shop in the best light!
