We’ve been noticing the odd hiccup when connecting to and importing from Etsy. Essentially Etsy are tweaking their API and migrating over to a new system.
Unfortunately this means that we’re experiencing the odd outage whilst this is happening. If the import does error then it is best to try again after a break. We’ll be looking into ways to provide move information regarding the current status of the Etsy API. This won’t solve these outages, just provide a clear indication that problems are occurring :(
We know it’s not the best solution, but when a problem like this is out of our hands it’s the best we can do for the time being.
