How do fees work on Etsy?

Joining and setting up a shop on Etsy is free. Each item listing on Etsy costs $0.20 USD when the listing is published. A listing lasts for four months or until the item is sold. Once a sale occurs, we assess a 3.5% transaction fee on the item’s sale price. You have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged prior to publishing a listing.

Fees for listings and transactions are accrued on your monthly Etsy bill. At the end of each month we add up all your fees, and we email your monthly statement to you. You must pay your bill by the 15th of the next month using either the credit card on file or PayPal.

Do I need a credit card to sign up?

To become a seller on Etsy, you need to provide a valid credit card for verification purposes. Seller registration through PayPal is available as an alternative to credit card registration for members in certain countries. You won’t incur any charges until you open your shop and publish your listings at a rate of $0.20 per item.

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. If you're wondering what qualifies as handmade on Etsy, read more here.

With Direct Checkout, our easy-to-use payment system, buyers pay with their credit or debit card in their local currency and you receive the funds to your bank account in your local currency (learn more here). Additionally, you can accept payment methods such as PayPal, check, or money order.

What should I name my shop?

If you have a name in mind, let’s first make sure it’s available. To check, enter the name in Shop Setup (if you don't have a shop yet) or Shop Settings (if you already have a shop.)
