Save Time By Automatically Renewing Your Etsy Listings

Blue Car

Blue Car | by: rynoprints

The developers over at Statsy.org have just released their Clockbot.  This new feature allow you to set up your Etsy listing to automatically renew.

The Clockbot utilizes the Etsy api with the new secure OAuth system (read about the OAuth here)

Here is a short tutorial on how to set this up!

1. Head over to Statsy.org and find the Clockbot tab.    Click the login button.

2. This will take you to Etsy and ask if you want to allow access.

3. Back to the Clockbot!   Enter the listing number from the item you want to renew, set the date and time, and hit schedule.

  1. OMG. A dream come true. Thank you so much for the info!

  2. I love you people who make my life easier. :-)

  3. Thanks for directing us to where the application resides in ‘your Etsy’.

  4. Yes, yes, yes, this has made my day!!! The only problem here is that I just filled the page with auto relists….it’s almost TOO easy….nah, it’s great. Thanks for the heads up and a great big thank you to Statsy!!

  5. Thanks Tim, again you upgrade our life here…

  6. Awesome. Thanks for the info!

  7. I love checking your tweets and blog You always have Great info!

  8. Oh, wow! Woot! That’s for the info.

  9. … or THANKS for the info… too excited to spell correctly… should make a spelling robot… I’ll have the time to NOW. ;)

  10. This is great info! Thanks again!

  11. Nice to have this tool. Is there such tool to put your items in order from high to low price when relisting? It always takes time to put things back in order after relisting….uuggg!

  12. I’ve been waiting
    for an app like this
    to come into my life
    Yeah, waiting for an app like this
    to make me feel alive.

  13. Haven’t tried it yet. Sounds like a great idea!

    Wish there was a way to set up the expired or relist a sold item this way!

  14. Sounds like a wonderful tool, I am going to try it out now. Thank you so much for sharing!

  15. I just tried it out, and it is so easy to use. Love it!!

  16. This would be much more useful if you could set it up to renew indefinitely at the same time and have it end when the item sold.

  17. AWESOME! Thanks so much for sharing!

  18. A great resource. Thanks for Sharing :)

  19. ♥ look at the twenty centces fly! I love it!

  20. Ditto the wish to be able to set this up for expired listings!

  21. Cool tool! I just hope etsy doesn’t turn into a, whoever has the most money wins type of site with tools like this. That would suck.

  22. I love this idea, I do have an SEO question about renewing though. I know this might sound stupid, but I will ask anyway. Does renewing your item change it’s location for SEO. Will Google have to recrawl for the new location?

  23. I just started using this Auto renew feature. Find it a little cumbersome, since every time I pull an item from my Etsy site, I have to reanter the autorenew date.

    Why can’t it remember the date of my just saved item?
    Go back to the default after I finish my session, please.

    Does anyone know what happens in 4 months? Do I have to manually enter all items and dates after autorenewal again, or will it remember my items and renew automatically every 4 months?

  24. I will definately check it out!!

  25. Thanks. Sounds like a great tool!

  26. WOW!! It’s amazing what is happening. Thanks for making my life simpler, Tim!

  27. is their away to do say jewerly are antiques etc, not have to go down each item maqybe I got this sucker wronge put looks like you do each and every single item when you have coubple hundread items in shop it takes a long time when comes to this kind of stuff and the way my old brain works it takes for ever sorry

  28. Yay! This is just what I’ve been searching for! Thanks!!!!

  29. Just trying it out now. Can’t wait to see what happens. Thanks for sharing Tim.

  30. I have an app on my phone that’s even easier.

  31. Thanks for sharing this with us. Trying it out. Hope it works. I am posting my second shop. http://helenslightreadings.etsy.com thanks

  32. Why has the “choose the listing from you shop” link disappeared? I have used Stasy’s Clockbot many times but without the option mentioned above it is pretty hard.

  33. I’ve been testing a couple of different auto-renewal services. As an European seller my etsy shop (PaperPhine) always tended to sell-out during the night when US buyers are most active (thanks to 5 – 10 hours of time difference) so an auto-renewal service seemed like an excellent idea. Not only to keep the shop stocked but also to save me a lot of time.

    I tried out a couple of different services (luckily you can try them out for free and see how they work) and in the end I chose Happy Sunday on etsy – http://www.happysundayonetsy.com
    It’s an auto-renewal service for sold items (and they want to add a renewal service for expired listings soon, too) – and it’s easy to set up, nicely designed and has by now renewed more than 100 of my items succcessfully.

    So I guess before deciding on one service – Clockbot, Happy Sunday on etsy, etc – it’s a good idea to look around and try out the different options to find the perfect solution for your etsy shop.

  34. Hm… just wanted to leave an update that I’ve been using Happy Sunday on Etsy ( http://www.happysundayonetsy.com ) for over 5 months now and that I’m completly satisfied and happy – it’s making my life as a European seller a lot easier!
    Also they’ve managed that there are no additional auto-renew fees when using their service – so this is really great!
