Hi. I just recently revised a crochet pattern in my shop. I added the new pdf to my listing and removed the old one. My question is, a few people had bought the pattern before it was revised. Does etsy send an email stating there is an updated pattern or do I need to send the pdf's out?
Etsy does not. In fact they would need to purchase the pattern again from you in order to get the revised one. The one in their account did not change when you updated the pattern.
I know this because I informed one pattern maker of an error. It was corrected but the one in my account still has the old version. I would either need for the seller to email me the corrected one or I would need to purchase again to get the new version.
I actually had a crochet seller send me a revised version through email after 2 months later when she told me she had made some mistakes on the previous one. I very much appreciated the gesture. She included a freebie as well that was just a bonus 😍
