Listing Details and Checkout going mobile!

Jul 11, 2011

Today we are launching new optimized pages that will allow people to view listings and checkout from their mobile phones. This includes integration with PayPal's mobile checkout feature.

Although most parts of Etsy are already accessible with smartphones, the optimized pages are meant to load quickly and fit on your phone's screen properly. We've also made them easy to use with your fingers, just swipe away to switch between photos and scroll through more products that are in a shop.

Read more about it here in our FAQs: http://www.etsy.com/help/article/494

Right now, we are supporting iPhones, iPod touches, and Android phones (OS 2.2 Froyo and newer) as these devices comprise over 95% of our mobile traffic. People with Blackberry phones running OS 5.0 and above have had success using Etsy mobile. However, it is not optimal and we are not supporting these phones at this time, so we recommend people with those phones use their computers.

Look out for more announcements on mobile, as we continue to improve Etsy, and make even more pages optimal for use on your phone!
