Etsy has been an integral part of my growth from hobbyist to full-time screenprinter and business owner. My designs would not have fallen into so many hands without Etsy’s wide reach.

Etsy no doubt played a part in our growth and success… even though we sell in multiple venues, we still find that Etsy is one of our best sources for finding new customers.

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.

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 3.5% transaction fee on the sale price (not including shipping costs). If you accept payments with PayPal, there is also a payment processing fee based on their fee structure.

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.

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).

How do I get paid?

If you accept payments with PayPal, funds from PayPal sales on Etsy will be deposited into your PayPal account. We encourage sellers to use a PayPal Business account and not a Personal account, as personal accounts are subject to monthly receiving limits and cannot accept payments from buyers that are funded by a credit card.

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.
