Hi Etsy fam, I wonder if anyone knows if Etsy advertise your listings oh your behalf, without charging you?
To explain, I sell prints which only retail for a few pounds each so Etsy ads don’t really work for me and I’ve turned them off. However, I was going through my stats today and some of my prints that are best sellers have had several views from Social Media and there’s also a few that have been marked as being sold from Offsite Ads, but I don’t advertise anywhere. I googled one of the keywords for one of my best sellers and it’s come up first on Google and some of my other prints have showed up too!
Basically, I want to know if I’m paying for this or if Etsy also advertise things they think others will buy in certain categories and they take the advertising hit? Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
