Hurrah! Finally someone has created some Greasemonkey scripts for Etsy! And of course the husband of an Etsy seller had to be the one to do it. We love developers who make tools for sellers that Etsy can't/won't make so I was sure to rush over to post this.
If you don't know, Greasemonkey is a killer plugin to Firefox that essentially adds functions to pages. There are a few hundred for Flickr that streamline things immensely, and personally I find a number of them essential and I'm lost if I use a computer without them. Now there are some for Etsy!
There are a number of them to be had - here's the descriptions:
printable receipt enhancer
Apply IDs and class names to elements on the printable receipt page, so that you can use stylesheets to change the appearance of the page. Change the font size, hide sections, change colours, add a logo - see the example stylesheets for examples.
(This one is more for techno saavy folks... you have to know some css to enter into it.)
transaction id to url
Change the text "Transaction ID# ..." for each item on the "printer-friendly" receipt page into a URL.
(especially helpful for cancelling transactions!)
Automatically turns the text "listing #..." or "transaction #..." in a convo into a link. Useful for when a customer uses the "contact the seller" link to send you a convo.
(I have dreamed of this since day one... when they write about a item, you know what one!)
Add extra information to the "buyer" box on a receipt page - a link to convos with that user, a link to their feedback page, a link to send them a convo, and a link to their email address.
(This is AWESOME. Links the email, ads links to send a convo, and to jump to convos from that buyer!)
Add a link to the "printer-friendly" receipt view for each order on your orders page, next to the link to the regular receipt.
(This one speeds things up and saves you a couple clicks!)
Don't let the scripts word throw you off, getting and installing Greasemonkey could not be easier! If you can click a link or button, you can do it.
- If you are runnning Firefox, go here, then click the "Add to Firefox" button.
- Firefox will pop up a dialog box asking you to confirm that you want to install Greasemonkey - click on "Install".
- Restart Firefox (See that part was easy!)
- Next go to the Greasemonkey scripts for Etsy page... and click on the name of the ones you want.
- The next page you will see an install button... when it's ready to click, click it. DONE! Go back and add another!
I love this so much I want to have it's babies.
(edit: BTW, if you want to find this site later, you can find it listed in our EtsyLinks on the left, and under "etsyhacks" or greasemonkey" in our labels)
