Etsy Shop Policies Checklist
In March 2016 Etsy moved away from letting sellers completely customize their policies section to a "template". This is why you may see some shops with policy sections that look different than others. However, Etsy has said that if you use their template you will get a small boost in search. So why not?! You can include your own information in the FAQ section below the template (as long as it doesn't conflict with anything in the template you've already chosen).
Also know that Etsy will "hide" shops that don't have policies setup. Think about it - it makes it more difficult for them if something goes wrong! If you have policies you can stand behind then it makes your transactions so much easier!
Here are a few of the things that you should mention in your shop policies section.
