Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some common questions about selling on Etsy.
How do fees work on Etsy?
Joining and starting a shop on Etsy is free. There are three basic selling fees: a listing fee, a transaction fee, and a payment processing fee.
It costs CA$0.26 to publish a listing to the marketplace. A listing lasts for four months or until the item is sold. Once an item sells, there is a 3.5% transaction fee on the sale price (not including shipping costs). If you accept payments through Etsy’s Direct Checkout system, we also collect a 3-4% + CA$0.25 payment processing fee when an item is sold.
Listing fees are billed for $0.20 USD, so if your bank's currency is not USD, the amount may differ based on changes in the exchange rate. The payment processing fee may also vary by bank country.
What do I need to do to create a shop?
It's easy to set up a shop on Etsy. Create an Etsy account (if you don’t already have one), set your shop location and currency, choose a shop name, create a listing, set a payment method (how you want to be paid) and finally set a billing method (how you want to pay your Etsy fees).
What can I sell on Etsy?
Etsy provides a marketplace for crafters, artists and collectors to sell their handmade creations, vintage goods (at least 20 years old) and both handmade and non-handmade crafting supplies.
How do I get paid?
With Direct Checkout, our easy-to-use and secure payment system, you may accept payments from a wide variety of payment methods including credit and debit cards, Google Wallet, Apple Pay and Etsy Gift Cards. You may also choose to accept payments through PayPal. Funds from your sales are deposited directly to your bank account in your currency, no matter how or from where the buyer pays.
How does Etsy protect sellers?
Seller Protection is a programme that offers you peace of mind in the event of a transaction dispute. If you are unable to resolve a disagreement with a buyer and the transaction meets eligibility requirements, Etsy will help you resolve the issue through our dispute resolution system.
Do I need a credit or debit card to create a shop?
No, a credit or debit card is not required to create a shop. To be verified as a seller you have the choice to use either a credit card or to register via PayPal. You will not incur any charges until you open your shop and publish your listings.
