Original Post

I'm a platinum powerseller on eBay and as you may know, lots of sellers are fleeing (or "flea"ing) from eBay who no longer wants to be the world's "flea" market! Does ETSY have an affiliate referral program? If so, I would love to participate!

All the best to you out there,

no, they don't

No, we are all treated the same. Individual artists with our own shops.

welcome to etsy ! hope you enjoy selling here

Selling on etsy is different to selling on ebay so please be sure to read the do's and don'ts of what you can sell here, and also make sure you change out all references to "auctions" and "bids" in your item listings

Welcome to Etsy! Best of luck to you here. This is a site for all things handmade, along with some vintage and supplies, so please keep your listings to those items only. If you haven't already done, please read through the Help section:

We are in no way affiliated with Ebay. Some new people like to state what some of their feedback was on Ebay in their Profile, just to encourage buyers that they are legit. It's not necessary though.

Hi. Welcome. What does it mean to be a powerseller on Ebay? When are you opening your Etsy shop?

Posted at 12:39pm Mar 18, 2008 EDT

In case anyone's wondering what an affiliate is, it's basically a link you post on your website and earn commissions when someone links through your website and buys something from the link.

Some people earn a lot of money that way. I earned $75.00 once when someone bought web hosting through my Netfirms link on my website.

It has nothing to do with any realtionship (or affiliation) to eBay in any way. So no, Etsy does not have an affiliate program.

Who else thinks Etsy needs an affiliate program? I do!

I do. This is the reason I signed up, hoping that I could sell Etsy products through my website and make a commission while also helping you guys to sell more of your product. I have a pagan/spiritual site. If you have products that you think would be good for that, I'd like to hear from you.

Bright Blessings,
Everything Under the Moon
