"My shop started out as a hobby, then a side hustle to support my teaching job. When my first son was born in 2014, I decided to grow it into a full-blown business. Selling on Etsy has given us the chance to watch our kids grow while building our business as a family."
Nicole Lewis from Art 2 the Extreme
"I never imagined running a vintage shop could make me feel like I was bringing joy into people’s homes, but that’s what I’ve come to experience. I love that it feels like a very personal experience both as a shopper and seller."
Alva Mac Gowan from Copenhagen Collected
"As a mother of three African-American kids, I felt a drive to create something for my children, and children like them, who were unaccustomed to seeing their likenesses in toys. One of my greatest joys when I launched m5y shop was to have my children come in, glance at my prints, and ask ‘Oh! Is that me?’"
Shaina Adams from Paper Play + Wonder
San Antonio, Texas
"Sitting down at my workbench to create continues to be my lifeline. My business has continued to grow, and that success is affirming of the bet I made to follow this path at age 45."
Micha González from Micha González
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. There’s also an advertising fee for sales that come from Offsite Ads.
It costs NZ$0.33 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 6.5% transaction fee on the sale price (including the delivery price you set). If you accept payments through Etsy Payments, we also collect a 3-4% + NZ$0.30 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.
You pay an advertising fee on any sales you make from Offsite Ads. When you open your Etsy shop, you can decide if you want to participate in Etsy’s advertising services.
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 Etsy Payments, our easy-to-use and secure payment system, you may accept payments from a wide variety of payment methods including credit and debit cards, PayPal, Google Wallet, Apple Pay, and Etsy Gift Cards. 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.
