Are you looking to change your Etsy shop name? If that’s the case, you’re in the right place. In this article, I’ll be covering how to change your Etsy shop name.
Let’s go ahead and get started.
In order to change your Etsy shop name follow these steps:
- Head over to Etsy.com, click shop manager.
2. Click settings.
3. Click on info & appearances.
4. Click shop name.
5. Enter your new shop name and save.
Please note shop names can be as long as 20 characters, and they can’t have spaces or punctuation. You’re able to capitalize letters in your Etsy shop name to distinguish separate words.
The name you choose becomes part of your shop URL : www.etsy.com/shop/shopname and shopname.etsy.com
What happens if I need to change my shop name again?
You’ll be able to change your shop as many times as you like before you open your Etsy shop.
When your shop is live and open, you can only change your Etsy shop’s name up to five times.
How do know if an Etsy shop name is available?
Whenever an Etsy shop name has been used on an open shop, it will not be available to use again. Please do not search for the name on Etsy since this is not an effective way to see if a shop name is disposable since it can be connected to a closed store.
The shop’s name will not appear in the Etsy search if it’s a username or a shop that has been closed.
You also can’t use a shop name that you previously used on a different account, even if that account I currently closed. Instead, you’ll be required to reopen your shop.
What if the name for which I am the right holder is not available?
If you hold intellectual property rights for your chosen shop name and you see this shop name is currently not available, you may choose to content the member to see if you could working something out with them.
