Fees and Listing Multiple Quantities

To add a higher quantity when creating or editing a listing, scroll down to the quantity field below the item price. Make sure to Publish your changes.

You can also edit your quantity on existing listings:

1.) Go to Shop Manager > Listings and find the listing.

2.) Click in stock or the price to edit. Your changes will save when you click out of the field. Please note that you can't use the in-line price editor on listings with priced variations.

You can also edit your price and quantity when you’re in Quick Edit mode. Click the Quick Edit button at the top of the page. The in stock field will become editable. Enter the new quantity and click out of the field or hit enter to save.

There is a $0.20 fee for creating or renewing a listing on Etsy. There is no fee for editing a listing. 

  • If you decide to list a higher quantity than 1, you'll only be charged for listing the multiple quantities when you sell them.

  • Your listing will automatically renew if someone buys a portion of your listing quantity, but some of the quantity is left over. You'll be charged the renewal fee, and your listing will remain for sale in your shop. 

  • If you sell more than 1 item in an order, you've already been charged for listing that first item. We only charge you $0.20 each for the extra quantity you sell.

Note: In general, it's a good idea to list the true quantity of the number of items you have in stock when you create a listing. If you're selling made-to-order items, make sure you only list the amount of items you can feasibly create during your production time.

To illustrate how quantity and listing fees work, let's say you sell bowls in your Etsy shop:

1. What if I list only one bowl?

You'll be charged $0.20 USD when listing your bowl. Listings expire after 4 months. Later, if you choose renew your listing, you’ll be charged a $0.20 USD renewal fee.

2. What if I list a quantity of four bowls?

You’ll be charged $0.20 USD for the listing. If none of the four bowls sells and your listing expires, it will cost you $0.20 USD to renew the listing. 

3. What if I list a quantity of three bowls and I only sell one before the listing expires?

You’ll be charged $0.20 USD for the listing. When the item sells, the listing will automatically renew because you've still got two left. You'll be charged an additional $0.20 USD auto-renewal fee so that the listing remains for sale in your shop.

4. What if I list a quantity of ten bowls, and I sell all ten?

When you first list the bowls, you'll be charged $0.20 USD for the listing. When all the items sell, you’ll be charged an additional $1.80 USD ($0.20 USD for each additional quantity that was sold).

If you renew the listing with the same quantity of 10, you'll be charged another $0.20 USD.
