Our House Rules

Reselling

“Reselling” is selling an item that you, the seller, did not make or design. Etsy's marketplace includes handmade items, vintage items, and craft supplies. Reselling is only allowed in the vintage and craft supplies categories.

Everything listed in our Handmade category must be made or designed by you, the seller. Reselling is not allowed in Handmade. Read more in our Handmade Policy.

Examples of prohibited reselling include the following:

  • Creatively repackaging commercial items (for example a gift basket consisting of non-handmade items)
  • Curating a collection of others’ handmade goods that you did not design or make
  • Selling items made or designed by another seller who is not part of your shop
  • Selling traditional handicrafts or fair trade items that you did not design or make

Etsy reserves the right to remove listings that do not follow our policies. Sellers remain obligated to pay any fees incurred in listing such items.
