"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."

Alva Mac Gowan

"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."

"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 my shop was to have my children come in, glance at my prints, and ask ‘Oh! Is that me?’"

Micha González

"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."

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some common questions about selling on Etsy.

How do fees work on Etsy?

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 $0.20 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 shipping price you set). If you accept payments through Etsy Payments, we also collect a 3% + $0.25 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?
