Can I disconnect from Etsy?
You're free to disconnect from Etsy at any time via Click & Drop.
In the 'Channels and Stores' section under the 'Settings' link, click on 'Go'. Click anywhere within the Etsy row to expand the data.
To disconnect the channel, simply click the 'Delete' button. Once you have disconnected, you will no longer be able to download and process any orders from the store.
If you need to reconnect the store at a later date, simply repeat the connection process.
My Etsy integration has disconnected
If after a number of attempts, Click & Drop has been unable to download your orders, your integration may become inactive, and the green chain link icon will change to red.
This may also occur after a long period of inactivity.
If this is the case, you will need to delete your current Etsy integration, and then create a new integration by once again following the steps above.
