Etsy Shop RSS Feeds Gone - Did You Notice?

I discovered a couple of weeks ago, that the Etsy shop RSS feed buttons are gone from shops.  Did you notice this?  I depend on the RSS feeds to help promote fellow artisans through Twitter and Facebook.  Have no fear, the RSS feed isn't gone!  I figured out a simple way to still subscribe to a shop's RSS feeds.  

All you need to do is go to a shop, and add "/rss" (do not use the quotes) in the address bar to the end of the shop address as pictured below.  

The screen will do a quick flash, and ta da... an RSS feed page loads and will look similar to the image below.

  1. Hey I wondered about that....I never really knew what it was for. I thought it was so that people could subscribe to my shop and get notices in their email when I listed something new. If that's not what it's for, that would sure be a great idea!

  2. It is for that as well. There are several uses for RSS feeds.
