A friend of mine recently made her first sale to Africa. Well, she thought it was her first, but she wasn't sure.
"Wouldn't it be cool to have a map with a little marker for each of my customers?"
"Probably. Let's try it."
When you first sign in, you'll have to wait a minute or two (maybe a bit longer if you're a big deal on Etsy), while your past receipts are downloaded from Etsy. The location data is stored so your map can be generated instantly next time.
Every night, the latest sales info is fetched from Etsy, so your map will stay up-to-date as your plan for World Craft Domination continues to unfold.
I wrote the Etsy integration to request as little info as possible to make this work. Only your Etsy username, user id, shop name, and shop id are stored, and never shared with anybody.
As for your customers, only their city, state, postal code and country are used. Street addresses are not used at all, so your customers' exact locations are not identifiable.
It's free to generate and view your map. Then it gets updated every night for the first week. To continue the updates after that, you can purchase an annual subscription for $5.00.
If you haven't subscribed yet, you'll find the payment button on your map page.
You can view the map here on the site, share it on social media, and embed it into your own site or blog, but I'm afraid there's currently no way to put the map inside your Etsy shop.
Etsy just doesn't provide a way to do that.
Since we all love Etsy, I think the best way to get in touch is via an Etsy Conversation.
