Pattern by Etsy - A Major SEO Concern

Today was reading up on Pattern by Etsy and there is a major SEO concern sitting here with duplicate content. This platform that lets you have your own website is, from what I'm reading, based off of your Etsy listings. You pay $15.00 a month to have your own shop online plus the regular Etsy fees, including the .20 for each listing because the products to your personal site are synced from your Etsy shop. This in turn causes duplicate listings and play a role on ranking in search engines and if you are ranking well now, having these duplicate listings will lower or drop you.

Sounds enticing but not a route to go if you want your products to be found in Google search or other search engines.
