What are the Best Proxies to Use for Etsy?
Residential proxies are the best for Etsy as they are undetectable. While mobile proxies work, they can be expensive. Datacenter proxies work, too, as they are part of our recommendations.
However, if you want to make use of datacenter proxies, make sure they are private proxies and have not been abused before. For managing Etsy accounts, sticky IPs are the best as changing IP address too often will raise a red flag. If you intend to scrap Etsy, then rotating proxies are the best in other to exceed request limits without getting blocked.
Why Use Proxies for Etsy?
Regular Etsy users do not make use of proxies, and Etsy does not even allow their usage. However, as a marketer on Etsy, there are some tasks you will need to use proxies for. Without proxies, you will not be able to carry them out. One of such is managing multiple accounts.
Etsy would identify and block your accounts if they are being managed from the same IP address, and as such, you will need to use proxies so each of the accounts would be on a separate IP address. Another reason you will need proxies is to sell in locations other than the location you are in, as you are not allowed to sell in other locations. You can also use proxies to unblock Etsy if your real IP address has been blocked.
How Many Accounts are Safe for One Proxy?
From the above, you can tell that the best thing to do is to run an account on a separate proxy. This is to make sure your accounts do not share the same IP footprint as that could be used to link them and then ban them.
However, this does not mean you have to stick to the one account, one proxy rule. If you know you cannot afford that, then you can manage more than two accounts with the same proxy server.
