Tech Updates: Etsy Mini

Mar 7, 2007

The Etsy Mini is now ready for you to use! This customizable widget allows you to post a neat little block of Etsy item images onto your own Web pages. The Etsy Mini can show either items from your shop (for sellers) or your favorites (for everyone). The Etsy Mini automatically updates your own Etsy shop or Hearts list updates. Think of it as an outpost of your Etsy shop or a visual wish list of your favorite items, trailblazing out there in the big wide world of the Internet.

How to add an Etsy mini to your website:
Step 1: Click on “Your Etsy” in the navbar on the very top of the site.
Step 2: Look in the bottom left of the sidebar, click on Etsy Mini.
Step 3: Choose whether you want to display items from your shop or from your favorites.
Step 4: Decide what size images you would like displayed on your website.
Step 5: Select the layout you would like from the drop down menu. Suddenly, a preview of your desired layout and products will magically appear below.

Wow! That looks great. Like what you see? Right below the preview you will see a few lines of code.
Step 6: Highlight and copy this code
Step 7: Paste this code into your own website
Step 8: Reap the rewards.

    Loved these instruction, right up until I went to "paste" the coding into my Facebook page. I may be slow, but I am just not seeing where to past the coding in to FB. Help!

    In Facebook, you need to get an application called "My Stuff" and paste the mini code into that. We also have a Facebook widget that works similar to the Etsy Mini, search Facebook for "Etsy Shop." Use one or the other, or both!
