Treasury East Beta Is Live!

Sean_thumb Treasury East Beta is a testing ground for the future of the Treasury, Etsy's ever-changing, member-curated shopping gallery.

Treasury East differs from the current Treasury in some important ways:

  • Treasury East has no limits. There is no limit on the number of Treasuries allowed, no limit on the number of Treasuries per user, no limit on the lifetime of Treasuries, no limit on the number of comments allowed!
  • Treasury East does not use Flash. No more waiting for lists to load!
  • Treasury East is wide. This is a preview of what the new wider version of Etsy will look like, and the new wider home page, coming soon.
  • Lists featured on Etsy's front page will now be chosen from Treasury East as well as from Treasury and Treasury West.
Our engineers Wil Stuckey (quiiver), Dan McKinley (mcfunley), Eric Bogs (ericbogs) and Kyle Barry (twokb) have worked hard to build out the infrastructure behind this feature, and this same infrastructure will eventually be used to enable a number of improvements anywhere there’s a list of items.

Treasury East presents unlimited possibilities and we are looking forward to the creativity you will bring to this new site feature. Below I've laid out my own little list of ideas for using Treasury East and hope to spark your inspiration. mary

Update on PayPal Issues For Canadian Buyers

Isaac Canadian buyers have been experiencing an issue with PayPal recently. We've successfully identified the root cause which affects some Canadian buyers who attempt to purchase from sellers using a credit card. Unfortunately, the fix won't be released by PayPal until May 25th.

Until this is resolved, the workaround is for sellers to invoice Canadian buyers who are otherwise unable to pay directly through PayPal.

We apologize for the inconvenience and understand that this is frustrating. We will continue to work with PayPal to get this resolved as quickly as possible, and appreciate your patience in the meantime.
