I've had an account there for years. Now I'm going to list some stuff there to sell. Should I make a new account for that purpose or should I just use the one I already have? I don't want to call the store "My random username"

 

thoughts?

I dont think you are allowed to change your username there, so if you dont have a lot of feedback and history with that name, I would change it if you wanted something new. best of luck!

I agree, if you plan on selling stuff you might want to make a new email account as well as a new etsy account. It's just easier to keep your selling emails and information separate from your personal email (to me, anyway!). You could use that email to create a new account with whatever you want to name your shop!

 

Good luck!

GREAT! I have only had my Etsy for a couple of months and it is turning out to be very lucrative, more so thatn I thought it would be. I would advise getting a new account if the username is kind of strange or not relating to your store or products. I made the mistake of not checking to see if the username can be changed and now my store has kind of a silly title but I use it anyway and wish I hadnt. So good luck to you and post your etsy site when you get it up and running!

you might look into if it can be changed now they changed the rules and many shops and shoppers have done so.
