I totally agree and I think Etsy sellers would do better not to have banner, so more people will pin to their boards.

Hello everybody,

Just chiming in on the discussion about Etsy pins - I have a "My Etsy" board, but haven't pinned much to it yet.  I think I would prefer to eliminate the price banner, but I don't think that's an option (it should be!).  I just tried repinning to another of my boards, but the price banner repinned too.  Can anyone tell me how to repin with no price? 

I would love for anyone to pin my listings, but I really think having that banner is a "turn-off" for many.  I too find it to be cheesy, and find myself not pinning from other Etsy shops for that reason.

Comment by Lorri Genovese on March 1, 2013 at 6:10pm

If I pin something through etsy, yes the price is on it. T

 For me the reason of pinning through the etsy store is to get those out there to see what we are selling and for how much.

I do have a board called "etsy stuff" where my etsy items go. If you repin  it will have the price banner. I think many of us also put the same item up on another board so it's free of the price banner. I guess you would need to look at the persons boards to see if they have it up on more than one.

Lori,

I wish I could pin more Etsy items, but most have price banners. Is the price banner automatic or can a shop owner choose to have it?

I like to help promote people too , but the price banner to me is cheesy.
Comment by MTippingAtelier on March 1, 2013 at 5:43pm

Hi, Dianne!  Whenever I pin an item from Etsy to any of my boards, all I do is click the "Pin it" button on the item on their page and it goes to Pinterest directly, with the price, and I put it in whatever board I wish.  I like to promote others and hopefully doing this will bring sales for fellow Etsians:)  I have heard some people wig out because of copyright issues (?) but I don't understand it really...

Hi Dianne when I put an etsy item up for sale I "pin" the item into my "etsy stuff" board and the price is automatically up with the pin. I will also pin it on different board of mine without going through etsy so there is no price. This way hopefully it might get to the audiences I'm looking for. I've seen it both ways on peoples different boards so some will repin it with a price on it
Comment by C. Dianne Zweig Editor's Desk on March 1, 2013 at 4:34pm

I have a question, when you have a shop  on Etsy, are you asked whether you want to add a price banner across image? It seems to me, that without the price banner, more people would "pin" the image to Pinterest and may not because of the price banner. And to me,  having yur image "pinned" on Pinterest will give it more exposure. But perhaps people do not want it pinned for some reason? I would like to hear from foks who know more about this?

thanks Dianne
