How to upload a product to Etsy as a “Published” status?
If you want to upload it as a “Published” status, you can go to the menu Store Setting and tick “(Etsy) Enable Auto-publish”.
Please note that the system will set the “About this listing” in Etsy as “I did” and “A finished product”. The system will also set the “Occasion” option to be birthday by default as well.
If you want to edit the other options such as a section or setup the production partner, you have to edit them by yourself. There is an option to bulk edit some options on the Etsy Listing page.
