Life happens, and sometimes we need a break from it all. For Etsy shop owners, there’s an option called Vacation Mode that allows you to step away from your shop for some time.
As the name suggests, Vacation Mode allows Etsy sellers to take a break from managing their Etsy shop. While it’s on, you won’t receive any new orders, but you’ll still able to manage and fulfill existing orders. You’re also still able to issue refunds to customers, cancel orders, and print Etsy shipping labels.
You’ll also be able to set up an auto-reply to anyone who messages you, and put an announcement on your shop page letting people know that you’re away. Here, Etsy shoppers can sign up to be notified via email when your shop returns.
Here’s how to set up Vacation Mode.
You can turn off Vacation Mode later by returning to this menu and clicking “Off.”
