This is what I get for not signing into my store page often enough.....

I had a sale.....THREE WEEKS AGO!?! I've been so wrapped up with personal stuff that's been going on I haven't checked my Etsy site for ages. I'll have to drop the buyer an email to make sure they still want it, I guess. I'll have to renew some items too, my store page is empty at this point.

Fellow Etsy bloggers, has this happened to you?

Lol. I almost never sign in any more. A sale is a distant memory. You should get an email though, that's all I check each day. Hope you can save your sale!

Oh my gosh, I hope you can save the sale. I log in daily - but then I'm doing my fiber business full time and stalk Etsy like a crazed woman...

ROFL oops...

Don't you get e-mail notifications? Or were you not logging in to your e-mail either? I'm obsessive about e-mail so unless the e-mail didn't come through I *probably* wouldn't miss a sale for 3 weeks. :) A few days maybe. lol

I'm sure they'll understand if you explain.

That has happened to me, too! Luckily, only a couple of days went by but my email notification FAILED to come through for some reason... hmmm....

I am going to let my soap/candle store go on Etsy. It seems there is too much competition and re-listing eats too far into the already small profit margin. I still LOVE Etsy, though... maybe just not as a seller anymore!

Ahhh! Hope they still wanted it - if they are like me, they'd laugh about it :)

(Second try, this may show up twice) I wasn't getting my email notifications, I think there was something from one of the Admins on the forum that some people are having problems not getting their emails. I did convo the buyer and got the item sent a couple days later but I haven't checked to see if she's received it or left me any feedback.

I have to get my laptop fixed, my desktop is ridiculously slow and my productivity online is suffering because of it. Also I've been so distracted with the court case my ex started that I've barely been doing any crocheting at all the last few months...the case ended today so now I'm looking at trying to get some things made to introduce for the upcoming holidays. I'm debating whether I should start some Halloween items or skip to Thanksgiving, also I'd love to do a fundraiser in November for the hospital a friend of mine was a patient at (she died a little over a year ago, November 1 would have been her 42nd birthday--I tried a fundraiser last year but didn't make any sales).

I get an email when someone buys something.
