If you like shopping on Etsy you must have met shops that have bad reviews, so let’s have a look at what are the Etsy shops to avoid: high number of bad reviews. It’s worth reading Insider Monkey’s latest article about this topic, because ecommerce is getting more and more popular, so we should know what to avoid.
At first let’s a have a short review on how Etsy works. On Etsy, each review of each item counts towards or against the entire shop, so they’re not specific to the item. Customers can rate their items between one and five stars, and leave a comment about their purchase. These reviews can be found by clicking on any item for sale, scrolling down and clicking on the second tab with stars on it. In their article you will find the ten most recent reviews are listed along with their dates, ratings, comments and even a picture if the customer has provided one. If the shop has received more than ten reviews, the rest can be found by clicking on the number of reviews found in parenthesis.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three shops from their list.
At first, let’s see Spiceperks. The so called “Purveyor of Fine Spices” sells spices that apparently aren’t so fine. Their lack of reviews is the only thing that hurt their score, but they’ve been selling since 2013 which is plenty of time to have racked up some reviews. Then there is NBDandE. This North Carolina print shop designs invitations and other goods for various types of events. They’re a relatively new shop though, so with time their amount of reviews may increase. And we must not forget about mentioning TheApplewoodLane. With the crazy amount of reviews this embroidery shop has acquired, you wouldn’t think a few single star reviews would matter. But it mattered enough to land this list of Etsy shops to avoid: high number of bad reviews, and no one wants to be the one who ends up with 1-star service.
