I had a similar problem, but with logging into some sites… like bank accounts or Etsy. Apparently, because they didn’t recognize the IP address they didn’t recognize me. So each time I’d be in a different location, like Atlanta or Dallas… and while I get why, it was too much so I finally shut the darn thing off. Glad it was a free trial thru my AV so at least it didn’t cost me anything, lol
The whole point of VPN is some level of end-to-end encryption of all traffic (such that even your internet service provider cannot read it), as well as obfuscating your actual physical location. Basically… privacy. When you connect to a VPN, you’re connecting through another network, so your location may move (as DesignsByCher noted) as your VPN provider may have multiple ‘t it amusing how much of the Internet breaks when websites and service providers can’t steal data on you?
Yes! Some apps won’t work either. I dabbled for a day with Mercari and found that it would not work if my device was running a don’t get me started on “Location. ” TOO many apps REQUIRE that location be on for them to work. I have an Olympus app to move photos from my camera to my phone and it never needed location switched on, but the updated app now requires it. Or beacons- the love their beacons!! Ugh. It’s ridiculous.
Yes, they do this sometimes. I use Vypr and if I can’t get to Etsy through one location, I try to find another in the same country, which often works. I’ve even had this happen with Brave Private browser with Tor.
I wonder if Etsy changed something recently, because I’ve had no problems with NordVPN for the past 2+ years with Etsy. But I bought a PDF yesterday, and when I went to download it, gogetsy just gave me an entirely blank page. I thought initially that it was a glitch with downloading, but then this morning it occurred to me to turn my VPN off. As long as I can continue to run my shop with the VPN on, I will keep it on. But it’s a pain, and I really wish sites weren’t starting to become more anti-VPN.
So, have you had success running your shop with the VPN on now? I’ve used a VPN for years and have never had a problem signing in to Etsy. But in the past two weeks, Etsy has refused to open if my VPN is on. Very frustrating, as I want to work in my shop and the VPN adds another layer of protection. It is always on US East coast. What has Etsy done recently that’s fouling up the VPNs?
I have had the same problem on the US East Coast for approximately the last two weeks also. What a pain, as my VPN takes a while to disconnect, and I like to go into my Etsy store at least two or three times per day. This is becoming too much to deal with.
I’ve had no problem with using my VPN (Private Internet Access) for years, but today, for no reason I can find, I can not l get Etsy to load no matter what server or locationI am connected ‘s pissing me off! Is there any fix for this issue?
there are a few locations that work using pia, i’m on poland right now but it’s pot luck and always changing. Very frustrating when you want to work from somewhere public and can’t log in… vpns should be praised and encouraged for cyber security
Etsy seems to have responded with this as lately they send me an access code which works just fine. This is much better than having to go through the captcha pictures of crosswalks, traffic lights, buses, etc. about a dozen times before getting signed in!
Bless you! I just set up the Proton VPN for extra security, only to find out that my Etsy shop was gone on all my browsers. Please tell me how you got the access code because I don’t believe I’ll get a refund on the VPN. I had to disconnect to join this group. Thank you
Hello, Same issue here, using Express VPN from Portugal. Even on my phone I have blanck pages and no connections from many european countries. Express VPN is given to work on RAM, nothing is written on disks. There must be a black list that blocks some IPs. It’s not convenient for the final user, I think of buyers that will not access and go away

I currently have an account on Etsy, using a VPN and Fresh IP that is different from my main computer’s ip. As of now, my account isn’t suspended.
I just tried registering for a new account, and I’m unable to. Since my current account is still in good standing, there should be no reason for me to not be able to get a new account. Yet I can’t get in. I can’t even get past the first page where you input your email address, name, and password.
I just read on the Etsy forums, and someone suggested that Etsy won’t let new applicants in who are using VPNs. Does anyone know if this is true? If so, it must be a new and recent thing because like I mentioned, my current account that’s still active is running on a VPN.
If this is the case, then any suggestions on how to get around it? Thanks!

Looks like most VPNs are getting denied on new account creation even though old users with VPN are not be bothered with.
They would probably see a huge hit in profit of they deactivate current accounts.

Does anybody know if we can open account with mobile IP for example and then use VPN after some time? Also maybe USA/UK VPNs do not work, but other countries VPNs work?
I was unsuccessful with VPN, it still got shut down
Is VPN more an option on overseas Etsy accounts? I’m in US.. and it did not work
Tether to a mobile phone. Not a lot of VPNs working these days with etsy
vpn with etsy is not working
I was planning to try out IPBurger’s Fresh VPN plan, since it has so many good reviews on this site. If Etsy is on to VPN users now, does that include IPBurger’s VPN services as well?

You have to use a Fresh IP address though.

Has anybody opened up an Etsy account with VPN, in 2020, and been successful so far?
Also why does everyone use IP Burger? Just curious? I am looking at NordVPN and Surfshark and at some point i’ll have to make a decision for my Etsy account.

Its not that hard to reset a ip if you your own internet. Nobody normal is using a vpn. Theres always a motive behind the use, and most times on selling platforms its not a good one.

for managing accounts, you can then use the VPNs.

So I made an Etsy account, my first and real one using the IPburger VPN setting that I’ve always used on my Amazon account. This was almost a month ago, I haven’t really used the account, it’s just sitting there.
SO far everything is fine.
I think try making a stealth one if you can with the IPburger IP and see how it worked out for you. This way you save your real info.

I think try making a stealth one if you can with the IPburger IP and see how it worked out for you. This way you save your real info. I just got back with ipburger’s customer service after purchasing their fresh vpn plan. I opened a ticket requesting further information regarding the browser extension’s spoofing features and I mentioned my intention of creating an Etsy account with the IP, and this is the response I got back.
“Have you already created an account on Etsy with this IP? We have found that Etsy is strict against VPN these days and does not allow creating an account with these IPs. ”
So many contradicting answers! Maybe I should go to my town’s library, make an etsy account with the hopes of not getting hacked (low chance anyways), then come home and run the newly made etsy through a VPN.
Funny enough, i think most people here are making a big mistake with Etsy. First and foremost, EVERYONE gets suspended either shortly after you make an account, or within the first few days. This applies if you do print on demand and post a lot initially. All you do is appeal it, then they say oops and reinstate your account. I thought this was a given but I have a feeling everyone in here is not permanently suspended LOL!
How do I know? Because it’s happened to me 4 times. The first 3 times it happened, i’ve never been suspended from etsy before and since I knew how to sell and had a gameplan i made the accounts, posted a lot, and got suspended the first few days in. No problem, I got unsuspended shortly after. The 4th time though, and this is interesting as we speak, this one was about 5 days ago after I got initially suspended for all of my accounts (I had 4, and over 7000 sales combined, and I was so upset it’s how I found these forums). So to continue, I went to my mother and had her sign up for an account (another one, she already sells vintage stuff around the house and somehow hers didn’t get suspended with mine). Anyways I connected her account with my POD platform and put up like 40 listings in 3 hours, made 3 sales, and got suspended. I thought ok, I got caught and then I proceeded to find these forums. But as I appealed, I got the “oops” message a few days later (2 days ago). And i’ve still been selling on that account. I’ll juice it out until they catch me, because there’s no way they can’t. I use all the same pictures, mockups, descriptions, everything. Lol! Why I’m doing this, and wanting to use separate VPNS for my different stores, is so they all don’t come collapsing at once ever again!
So I really want to know if it’s a vpn thing.
I think try making a stealth one if you can with the IPburger IP and see how it worked out for you. Easier said than done, I mean I’ll have to open a new bank account and all that. I feel like it’s going to be a process, and I really want to do my best to get it right the first time.

So I really want to know if it’s a vpn thing. I can feel your frustration.
Going to a public IP address might be a good idea in the account creation, but i do not recommend you to shift to the VPN for account management.
Here’s the thing about etsy.
On your first sales, you undergo to a review, on whether you are high risk to them or not.
Now, since you passed the initial verification process on the account creation, it doesn’t mean you are already safe. Nope, you should not use a VPN when managing your etsy account, it should always be a residential or mobile internet IP. Going to the public ip address would be tasky and time consuming – so what do you have to do? I always use Residential IP address proxies, until then i did not have any problems with etsy.
But can you still use the VPN? yes of course, but not with etsy. I also bought an IPburger VPN before for the management of my ebay account and it was good.

Picking the Best Proxies for Etsy Bots
Etsy is not your regular site that you can get away with using any proxies you get your hands on. If you need proxies for accessing Etsy, come in now and see our recommended proxies handpicked by is a market place where sellers of handmade craft products and vintage items display their goods for sale. Etsy follows the footstep of many other big platforms by having a strict anti-spam system in place to wade off scammers, spammers, and dishonest then means that they block people when suspect you are being dishonest or going against their terms and conditions of usage. While this is a good thing, a good number of persons are blocked and prevented from accessing the platform wrongly – a fault from the from these people wrongfully blocked, we have another set of people that set out to circumvent restrictions and exceed some limits put in place by Etsy. If you belong to either of these groups, then you need to know that when Etsy set out to block you, proxies are your only saving You Need Proxies for EtsyI know you might be wondering why you need proxies to access Etsy. Well, the truth is that you really do not need them if you haven’t been blocked and not trying to circumvent any restriction or mimic visiting from a location different from where you are. IP tracking and blocking remains the biggest way Etsy prevent spam. If you are able to hide your IP footprints and use arbitrary IP Addresses, you can be ahead of the Etsy anti-spam system. But do you even the proxies for? Manage Many AccountsEtsy does not allow one person to own multiple accounts. However, some people own multiple accounts and manage them automatically using automation tools known as Etsy Bots. For them to hide their IP footprints and trick Etsy into thinking that each account is on a separate machine, they have proxies. Without proxies, all the accounts will be linked to the same computer, and they will all be rcumventing BlocksThe second reason why you need proxies to access Etsy is if you have been blocked either by Etsy from accessing their platform. Usually, Etsy blocks you if you go against their terms and conditions – or deem you a dishonest person or a spammer. This block can be by mistake, though. When you are blocked, your device IP Address is blacklisted, and you can’t use the device to access their platform again. With proxies, you can remove this block and appear to them as a different Proxies for EtsyIf you visit the websites of proxy providers, you will discover they have specialized proxies for Instagram, Pinterest, Pokémon Go, and even Google, among others. However, hardly would you see specialized proxies for Etsy. This is not unconnected to the fact few people use proxies on Etsy when compared to the other platforms. It also because Etsy does not require specialized proxies as general proxies work – provided they are best proxies to use for Etsy are residential proxies. However, datacenter proxies also work. Below are 3 proxy recommendations each for both residential and datacenter sidential Proxies for EtsyResidential proxies route client’s requests through devices in their peer-to-peer network and use their IP Addresses, which are assigned by Internet Service Providers (ISPs). This makes them undetectable. However, make sure you go for elite proxies, and they make sure no trace of your IP Address is leaked. Below are the best 3 residential proxies for minatiIP Pool Size: Over 72 millionLocations: All countries in the worldConcurrency Allowed: UnlimitedBandwidth Allowed: Starts at 40GBCost: Starts at $500 monthly for 40GBLuminati is arguably the best residential proxy provider for Etsy marketing. This is because it is undetectable, secure, fast, and reliable. It has the largest proxy pool in the market, with over 72 million residential IPs under its thing you will come to appreciate in Luminati is its wide location coverage. Luminati has proxies in all countries of the world and in most cities around the world. This makes targeting possible even at the city-specific level. Also, one feature of Luminati that makes it perfect for Etsy is its session control system that allows you to control the period you want a particular session artproxyIP Pool Size: Over 10 millionLocations: 195 locations across the globeConcurrency Allowed: UnlimitedBandwidth Allowed: Starts at 5GBCost: Starts at $75 monthly for 5GBSmartproxy is a premium residential proxy service provider just like Luminati. However, Luminati has an inherent problem that makes it not perfect for low-budget Internet marketers – its minimum monetary requirement is high. If Luminati is out of your reach and you need proxies that work as they do, then Smartproxy is your surest option – they have a minimum monetary requirement of $ operate the same system, which is allowing you access to their proxy pool but limited by the bandwidth you can consume. Smartproxy got over 10 million residential IPs in its pool and has a session control system that works quite well for ormproxiesIP Pool Size: 40, 000Locations: the US and EU region onlyConcurrency Allowed: only one device per portCost: Starts at $50 monthly for 5 portsStormproxies is a little bit different from the two above. The most spectacular difference is in its pricing model. While the two above are priced based on consumable bandwidth, Stormproxies is priced based on ports. Unlike the above that have high rotating proxies that change IP Address after every ormproxies only supports time-based IP rotation, and each of the ports changes the IP assigned to it after every 5 minutes. While this might not be good for some tasks, it is perfect for a site like Etsy that makes use of session and login. Stormproxies has a residential IP pool with 40, 000 IPs, and its pricing is quite affordable and center Proxies for EtsyUnlike in the case of residential proxies that the IPs they use are issued by ISPs, Datacenter proxies make use of IPs owned and issued by datacenter. The are quite cheaper when compared to residential proxies, but they are easily detected and, as such, susceptible to more blocks than residential proxies. When using datacenter proxies on Etsy, you have to be careful to avoid blocks. Below are 3 tested and trusted datacenter proxies for PrivateProxyLocations: US and EU region onlyConcurrency Allowed: Up to 100 threadsBandwidth Allowed: UnlimitedCost: $1. 49 per proxy for a monthMyPrivateProxy is arguably the best datacenter provider in the market. Interestingly, their private proxies have been found to work quite great on Etsy. Unlike residential proxy providers that provide you a pool of proxy, MyPrivateProxy, and most datacenter proxies do not do that, they sell you proxies individually, and as such, you have to deal with proxy management such as IP rotation thing I like about MyPrivateProxy is that they make use of green energy sources. MyPrivateproxy allows you to enjoy unlimited bandwidth – and its pricing is quite affordable proxiesLocations: US and EU onlyConcurrency Allowed: UnlimitedBandwidth Allowed: UnlimitedCost: $2. 00 per proxy for a monthWith over 8 years of experience and clients from around the world, Buyproxies have proven to be a private proxy provider that can be trusted. Their proxies are a little bit more expensive when compared to MyPrivateProxy – and it works quite great for the Etsy platform. The plan recommended for use on Etsy is their dedicated proxies, which are private and meant for a single you subscribe to any plan on Buyproxies, you are given access to enjoy unlimited bandwidth.

They sell dedicated datacenter proxies in bundles of 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, and 500. One thing I have come to like about InstantProxies is that before proxies are sold to you, they test them publicly with their testing tool and make sure it works – this does not in any way prevent them from offering you a refund if you aren’t OK with the proxies after provider sells elite proxies from different subnets from worldwide locations.

The question of how many accounts per proxies only come in when you are using a static proxy that does not change IP as it is in most datacenter proxies and a few residential proxies.
