How to Reactivate Suspended Account on Etsy

Are you searching for how to reactivate your suspended or deleted Etsy account or you forget your password but you don’t have access to your email or phone number? If you have deactivated your account but want to use it again, and no more than 30 days have gone by, you still have time to reactivate your Etsy account. You can do this from the Etsy app or enter the website.

Also, If you forget your password and you still have access to either your email or phone number, you can reset your password and recover the account. Simply tap on the “Forgot password?” option on the login screen.

However, if you don’t have access to your email or phone number or your account is suspended or banned you need to use another method to reactivate the Etsy account. Otherwise, you have to create another Etsy account. In this article, you’ll learn how to reactivate Etsy account with or without email or phone number.

How to Reactivate Etsy Account by Logging in

To get started, log in with the account you want to reactivate by using your username and password as if you never deleted it

Once you click the login button, you will be taken to your profile page. In some cases, Etsy asks you if you want to reactivate your account. Click yes, and you’ll be able to enter your profile again. After you reactivate your Etsy account, you can use it again with all the functions. Go back to the home screen and start using the services. 

Remember as we mentioned at the beginning, you have at most 30 days to reactivate your account if you decide to deactivate it.

You can do the reactivation process during this period, but after this time has elapsed, you permanently lose your account and will have to create a new one. The option of reactivating your account may not be available when you log in, in this case, you can request help on the appeal form.

To recover your Etsy account without email or phone number, you need to submit the Etsy feedback form or you can create a new Etsy account and report a problem directly on the app. Once you’ve submitted the feedback form or reported a problem, wait for a few days for Etsy’s response.

If you don’t have access to your email or phone number, you won’t be able to reset your password. Hence, to recover your account, you need to contact Etsy directly. Other than the feedback form, there is another way where you can contact Etsy.

You can do so directly on the Etsy app. However, you need to make another account first. Once you’ve made another account, log in to Etsy, navigate to your profile, and tap on the three dots. Then, scroll down and tap onReport a problem”.

Then, select a relevant topic, tap on “No”, tap on “Still have problem”, describe your problem, and tap on “Report”. Anyhow, below is a step-by-step guide on how you can recover your Etsy account without email or phone number.

Reactivate Etsy Account Without Email or Phone number

Step 1. Go to the Etsy feedback form

The first step is to go to the Etsy feedback form. The Etsy feedback form has two uses. Firstly, it allows you to share feedback that you have about your experience on the app. Secondly, you can tell them about a problem that you’d like to report. Any information that you provide will only be used to respond to your report. You can visit the form on a desktop or on mobile.

Firstly, search for “Etsy feedback on Google and click on the first search result. Alternatively, you can visit the feedback form. This is the official Etsy feedback form. Proceed to the next step to learn what to do next.

Step 2. Enter your email address and username

Once you’re on the Etsy feedback form, you’ll see a “Contact Information” header. Under the “Contact Information” header, you’ll see two fields. The first field is the “Email address” field which has an asterisk. Under the “Email address” field, enter any email address.

The email address does not have to be associated with your Etsy account. Since you’ve lost access to your email address, use an alternate email address that you have. Otherwise, you’ll have to make a new one.

Next, you need to enter your Etsy username under the “Username” field. Although the field is optional, you need to enter it since you’re trying to reactivate your account. Hence, enter the username of the Etsy account that you want to recover. Proceed to the last step to learn how to complete and submit the form.

Step 3. Explain that you lost your email and phone number

After you’ve filled in your email and Etsy username, scroll down the form. Under the “Username” field, you’ll see a “What would you like to tell us?” field.

This field is compulsory, and you’ll have to explain the problem that you’d like to report. Since you’re trying to reactivate your Etsy account, you need to explain that you lost access to your email address and phone number.

Here’s an example, “Hi Etsy, I forgot my password but I lost access to my email and phone number. My username is @example. Can you help me to recover it?”. Under the “What would you like to tell us?” field, you’ll see an “Upload” link where you can upload attachments.

As you’re reporting that you lost access to your email and phone number, you don’t have to upload any attachments. Instead, you can simply submit the form. Tap on the “Submit” button to submit the form.

Once the form is submitted, you need to wait for 3 to 5 business days for Etsy’s response. They will respond to you via the email address that you’ve entered on the “Email” field. Hence, make sure to check your email for their response with instructions on how you can recover your account.

How  to Reset Etsy Password
