Etsy is supposed to be a web site that combines sellers of handmade items with customers.
There are tons of businesses that claim to hand make their products. I checked one shop in particular and ordered 500 of their handmade products and it went to checkout.
I did not place the order which was several thousand dollars. So they have 500 of one of their hundreds of clocks ready to ship????? They have hundreds of these different clocks. Many other items are companies posing as hand made products.
This creates an unfair advantage for those who really do craft their products. I can see how businesses mass producing products would create more revenue for Etsy, but this in not what this website is supposed to represent.
