Etsy Wholesale Membership Criteria

Etsy Wholesale is a marketplace where independent retailers can discover unique products from vetted artists and designers. Retailers can select from an expansive pool of items and connect directly with sellers, view their web-based line sheets, and submit purchase orders.

Etsy Wholesale is currently a private, juried marketplace. If you’d like to be considered for membership as a seller and/or buyer, please review the criteria below. While we do review all Etsy Wholesale applications, we may not be able to accept everyone who applies and meets the criteria.



Non-US sellers



Etsy Wholesale provides a marketplace for independent boutiques with either a retail location or active online store to find unique handmade items at wholesale prices.

As a buyer, you guarantee that you represent an independent retail business and have the authority to enter into agreements on behalf of that business. You must be able to provide a valid Resale Tax ID number, VAT, BN, or ABN for your business.

The wholesale platform is intended for stores purchasing finished goods, as we don't offer supplies for creating new items. Etsy Wholesale is not optimized to support consignment agreements and buyers must purchase items outright from the sellers offering their goods.

Sellers on Etsy Wholesale must meet the following requirements:

Pricing: Etsy Wholesale sellers are required to offer wholesale prices that are 50% (or less) of the suggested retail value. Your suggested retail value must match the current retail prices in your Etsy shop and/or your own website. This allows us to comply with industry standards and meet the expectations of our retailer community.

Customer service: If you already have an Etsy shop, we review your track record with customer service and reviews, paying Etsy bills, and complying with Etsy policy when assessing your readiness for wholesale.

Overall professionalism: When we review your application, we look to see that you have a strong assortment of products and professional branding and aesthetic in your Etsy shop or website.

Non-US sellers

All sellers are welcome to apply to Etsy Wholesale provided they meet our membership criteria. However, Etsy Wholesale only supports listings in US dollars (USD) at this time.

If accepted, non-US sellers must set their shop currency to USD to sell on Etsy Wholesale. While accepted applicants who don’t want to switch to USD can’t sell on the platform, they'll still be considered for participation in marketing events outside of the US.

Changing your shop’s currency affects both your wholesale linesheet and your Etsy shop.

If you’re an approved non-US seller and have switched your shop currency to USD, let us know:
