What are Shopping Engine Ads, and will it benefit my business to be a part of them? SUSANNAH SAYS: Shopping engines are search engines that allow potential buyers to easily find and compare products that come from online marketplaces, like Google Shopping. Listing your products on shopping engines is a great way to expose your items to buyers who are searching for goods around the web, not just on Etsy. Right now, there is no charge to ask Etsy to include your items in these engines, and it’s a good way to bring traffic from outside Etsy to your shop.

However you cannot copy the actual fabric as copyright and design rights may still exist.
