BEWARE! If you change the price of a copied listing, the PRICE CHANGE in “New Listing Format” DOESN’T STICK! (Now I have to ALSO figure out if the other changes I made “stuck”!)

Used “New” Listing format, Copied an old listing, changed all the particulars and saved it so I could get measurements for the item. Opened the listing, entered the measurements, decided to mark the price higher, then published the listing. Old price shows live…

Went back to edit the “Live” listing showing the wrong price—on my end it shows the price I want it to be. Published it again, still the WRONG price! I even had my daughter (who doesn’t live here) check my shop and she saw the wrong price too.

**I WAS able to change the price within the “Old” listing format and it stuck.

Had this exact same problem today. Was told by etsy support to go back to the old form and make the change…good thing we have to switch in a few days. Good thing Etsy rolled out a form with so many issues and we get to diagnose the bugs!

Our team recently identified an issue impacting the ability to bulk edit listings for some members, which has since been resolved.

Upon investigation, our team uncovered that one of our latest updates to the listings manager had unintentionally caused this issue. This functionality is back to normal, and you should now be able to resume bulk editing your listings. We also identified an issue with renewing sold-out listings and are working on fixing this within the next week.

We apologize for any confusion or disruption this may have caused, and we appreciate your patience as we make improvements and necessary updates to the listing experience. Thank you, everyone, for bringing this to our attention.
