Etsy has announced they are testing out a new way for buyers to leave reviews for sellers with videos.
During the test phase, video reviews left by buyers will only be visible to the seller - Etsy says they will notify sellers before pushing the feature live for all buyers.
We’re excited to let you know that we’re working on a new feature that could help give shoppers more confidence when deciding to make a purchase: buyer video reviews!
Video reviews from buyers are another great way for shoppers to get an up-close look at your items and could help other potential customers purchase from your shop.
Since we’re still fine-tuning this feature, video reviews will only be visible to you for the time being, until we launch them to all buyers. We’ll be sure to let you know when that happens. If a buyer has left you a video review, you can see it by visiting the Review section of your Shop Manager from a desktop computer.
I'll update as more info becomes available - in the meantime, let us know what you think about Etsy Video Reviews in the comments below!
