Etsy has released a categories and item attributes update for July. The company occasionally updates categories and item attributes that enable sellers to classify their products better, making it easier for buyers to find the items they are looking for on the platform.
New Gemstone Type Attributes
Etsy added 82 new options to the Gemstone type attribute sellers can use to describe the type of stone used, including Alexandrite, Hematite, Howlite, Mother of Pearl, and Spinel. Sellers can check out the Gemstone type attribute in your listings to see all the new options available.
New Categories and Attributes for Video Games
New subcategories for Video Games enable sellers to get even more specific about the type of item they’re selling. The new categories are:
- Arcade Games
- Controllers & Joysticks
- Handheld & Pocket Games
- Parts & Modifications
- Controller Modifications
- Dock Covers & Socks
- Stands & Displays.
Etsy also added two new attributes for this category. One attribute is Game Format, which can be used to add more details about the type of game, and the second is for Video Game Lots to describe what is included.
New Kurta Category for Boys’ and Girls’ Clothing
And finally, for July, Etsy added a new Kurtas category to Boys’ clothing and Kurtas & Kurtis, Salwar Kameez, and Lehengas categories to Girls’ clothing.
The Etsy July category and attributes update follows a larger one the company released in May. Sellers that may have missed previous updates can check out the complete list of categories and subcategories available on the Etsy Marketplace here.
Etsy sellers can also learn more about maximizing the use of categories and attributes from the Etsy Seller Handbook.
