The new Etsy shop designs go live next week on the 5th of April. Is your shop ready to embrace the new look? You can read all about it here: https://www.etsy.com/seller-handbook/article/your-shop-home-in-a-brand-new-design/39964431073
You can play around with the new look before it goes live by going to 'your shop' then the blue 'edit new shop' button. Be aware that any changes you make to the policies and about page will go live straight away, but if you're uploading a cover photo that won't be visible until the 5th of April.
One of the big new changes is that Etsy are standardising shop policies, which you can read more about here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/seller-handbook/article/add-clear-policies-to-your-shop-in-just/39972427549 If you have your shop policies filled in at the moment you can keep them for now, but it looks like you might be forced to use the Etsy ones in the future. And you will not receive the same search boost as the shops which DO change to the new policies.
You can see lots of FAQs about the new look that have been answered by Etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/teams/7722/discussions/discuss/17534961/
