Etsy Hacks Information

Etsy Hacks is a website that offers a handful of scripts (little mini-programs) that make your Etsy experience a little bit better.

In order to use Etsy Hacks you need to be using Firefox as your web browser.
If you do not have Firefox you can download it for free here: www.mozilla.com/firefox/
Next, you need to install Greasemonkey, which can be found here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748

Now, you are ready to set-up Etsy Hacks!

These are the new things you can add on:

copy listings: create a new listing based on an existing one.
item zoom: adds a zoom icon to images in search and shop listings.
edit this item: edit or delete a listing from the View Listing page.
buyer info: add extra information to the "buyer" box on a receipt page.
forum wrangler: add extra features to the Etsy forum pages.

They can all be found on http://www.etsyhacks.com/; you can install one or all of them. There are also some other neat tools on this site, so if you are new I would spend some time looking around.

  1. loving this. i need to use the hacks..it just seems like a lot of work in my head for some reason

  2. heh -- the Etsy Hacks will take an average user about 15 minutes to set-up and maybe less. Let me know if you have any problems!

    <3 susan.

  3. Wow, this is so exciting. I'm a huge fan of FF extensions and these are fabulous!

    Sellers might also find the Clippings extension useful. It allows you to easily paste in commonly used bits of text. http://addons.mozila.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1347

  4. Help! I can download FF but when I go to use it says proxy server refusing service. Now what do I do???
