...or did one just show up and open a shop?  

Not going to call them out.
Not going to report them.
Just wondering if there was a change that wasn't mentioned/discussed in the Forum.

Please PM me the account.

We did not make any decisions to allow retail sellers.
That would still be in violation.

Please email us at: customerservice@artyah.com

Thank you

Done!  Sent you the ArtYah shop link, their Etsy shop link, and documenting links to three items listed in the shop showing the items sold retail or wholesale elsewhere.

I think it might take awhile before these shops actually completely vanish from ArtYah.  Craig may give them a warning and a period of time to list proper items or leave (totally guessing, but that seems a fair and reasonable thing to do).  I've reported a few shops and/or items in the past and they do eventually disappear from the site. [smile]

Maybe.  It's already been 11 days now.  In terms of the digital world, that's a very long time.

I'd be interested to know what type of warning one gives to a seller who lists counterfeit goods, misrepresents the materials of items (for example, claiming ultra cheap mass made jewelry is bargain priced precious metal fine jewelry), and has listed not one item that is handmade, vintage or crafting supplies?  

How "fair and reasonable" is it for a potential buyer to purchase one of these items, based on the deceptive information in the listing -- after the seller was known to be deceptive and a reseller?  As long as the shop, with its listings is active on a site, the possibility of a buyer being ripped off exists.  The advertising that ArtYah has done encourages shoppers to believe that counterfeit goods, deceptive listings, and marked up retail listings for sweatshop goods that sell elsewhere for a dollar, or less, aren't here.  But they are here.

I agree, because sometimes no warning needs to be given because of the nature of the goods and offense. Often I've seen shops simply taken down immediately at other venues because it is obvious that those people open the shops with deceit in mind. Then sometimes they come right back with a new shop in a new name, but their style and type of merchandise can be seen immediately. Repeat offenders who are determined to have their way or make it hard for admin.

Technically, there is no warning that needs to be given. It is each sellers responsibility to read the TOS/TOU before listing, and to abide by them.
