December 21, 2012—With more and more online shopping occurring through mobile phones and devices, it only makes sense for sellers to be able to list products using their phones and now iPads. Etsy sellers can now manage their entire Etsy shop through their iPad including the ability to create new listings, access Shop Stats and seller tools, which are currently available for iPhones. The new app iPad app even includes a “cha-ching” sound, similar to a cash register noise, when a sale is made.
Although the new app was launched a few weeks ago, the new version includes more h oliday shopping options and the highly requested “cha-ching” alert when a sale is made. The Etsy for iPad update is available through iTunes App Store and users can now access translated versions for Dutch, French, German, and British English. Etsy spokesperson Adam Brown said, “Mobile shoppers looking for last-minute holiday gifts can now order and send Etsy Gift Cards (US only), and recipients can redeem and apply gift card balance to purchases.”
When asked how many times Etsy mobile apps have been downloaded, Brown said there were no update at present about total downloads.
