Episode #8: Etsy’s New Definition of with Vanessa Bertozzi, Program Manager for Etsy Wholesale

October 10th, 2013 · Comments

On today’s episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast I'm pleased to present this conversation I had with Vanessa Bertozzi who has worked at Etsy since its inception. One week after the announcement Vanessa and I talk about what prompted the new policy, what it really will entail for buyers and sellers alike, and how it will shape Etsy's future.

In early October (2013) Etsy announced a significant policy change: sellers will be allowed to hire staff, have someone else ship their goods, and sell items made with manufacturing partners. This shift has been met with both outcry and relief from Etsy's 1 million sellers and 30 million buyers.

Please note that this show used to be called the While She Naps podcast. The name has changed, but the content and host have stayed the same.
