Etsy Update May 2022

Etsy Added New Categories in Home & Living, Craft Machine Files, and Roller Skate Accessories

Etsy released new category updates in May  2022, which add new subcategories to three primary categories, Home & Living, Craft Machine Files, and Roller Skate Accessories.

Occasionally, the company updates categories and item attributes to enable sellers to classify and describe their products better and make it easier for buyers to find items on the online marketplace.

New Etsy Home & Living Categories

Etsy added three new categories to the Home & Living category:

  • Mug Rugs
  • Bedspreads
  • Desk Name Plates

New Etsy Craft Machine Files Categories

Etsy added four new categories to the Craft Machine files category:

  • 3D Printer Files
  • Cutting Machine Files
  • Embroidery Machine Files
  • Knitting Machine Files

New Etsy Roller Skate Accessories Categories

Etsy added two new categories to the Roller Skate Accessories category:

  • Skate Leashes
  • Toe Guards

The company said it will automatically move relevant listings to the new categories, but we caution that sellers should do this themselves to ensure their items are listed in the right category.

This Etsy May category update follows one the company released in February covering Cooking Utensils and Gadgets Sub-Categories.

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.
