Etsy fee types

Sellers may be required to pay the following types of fees. Please note that all fees are listed exclusive of any value-added tax (VAT) or similar taxes that may apply. See the Taxes section below for further details. It's important to note that all service fees, including prepaid fees, are non-refundable.

Listing Fees

You will be charged a listing fee of $0.20 USD for each item that you list for sale on Etsy.com or Etsy's mobile apps. For items already listed on your Etsy shop, there are no additional listing fees to list items on your Pattern site. Listings that you only make available on your Pattern site do not incur a listing fee. You will only be charged a listing fee for creating or renewing a listing on Etsy; there is no fee for editing a listing. You will be charged a listing fee whether or not the listed item sells, unless you create a private listing, in which case you will only be charged the listing fee when the private listing is sold. Etsy.com listings expire after four months. Pattern-only listings do not expire. If you list multiple quantities of the same item, the initial listing fee will be $0.20, and the listing will be automatically renewed at $0.20 after each of the items sells. You can read more about fees for multiple listings in this Help article. Listing fees are reflected in your payment account and deducted at the time the listing is published or renewed.

Transaction Fees

When you make a sale through Etsy.com, you will be charged a transaction fee of 6.5% of the price you display for each listing plus the amount you charge for shipping and gift wrapping. If you are an Etsy Payments user and you list your items in a currency other than your payment account currency, see the Currency Conversion section below for more details on the transaction fee. If you sell from the US or Canada, the transaction fee will not apply to sales tax, Goods and Services Tax ("GST"), or Harmonized Sales Tax ("HST"), unless you have included those charges in your listing price. If you sell from anywhere other than the US and Canada, the transaction fee will apply to the listing price (which should include any applicable taxes), shipping price, and gift wrapping fee. If you offer optional personalization for an additional fee, the additional fee for personalization is added to the listing price you display and the total display price is subject to the same transaction fees described in this Section. See the Taxes section below for more information about whether you are required to include applicable taxes in your listing prices. Transaction fees are deducted from your current balance as each sale occurs, and are reflected in your payment account.

Advertising and Promotional Fees

Etsy offers multiple services to help you advertise your listings and promote your shop, including Etsy Ads and Offsite Ads. If you use Etsy Ads, you select your daily maximum budget, as set forth in more detail below. For Offsite Ads, fees are only charged if Etsy's advertising your listing directly results in a sale, as set forth in more detail below. For more information, please see the Advertising & Marketing Policy.
Etsy Ads Fees
If you purchase paid advertising on Etsy through the Advertising Dashboard in Shop Manager, you can set a budget to limit the amount you're willing to pay for Etsy Ads to promote your listings or shops on Etsy. Your daily maximum budget can be set at or above a predetermined minimum set by Etsy, and you will not be charged more than your maximum budget on a daily basis. All bids are made in United States dollars (USD). Etsy Ads fees may be charged on a recurring basis and are deducted from your current balance and reflected in your payment account. For more information, please see the Advertising & Marketing Policy.
Offsite Ads Fees
Etsy purchases offsite advertising from a network of participating partners, such as social networks and search engines. If such advertising includes your listing, a buyer clicks on it, and then places any orders from your shop within 30 days of that click, you will be charged an advertising fee on these orders (which we’ll refer to collectively as “Attributed Orders” and individually as an “Attributed Order”).
The Offsite Ads fee you are charged for Attributed Orders depends on your shop’s sales over the prior 365 days, as follows:
  1. 1.
    The standard fee you will pay is 15% on Attributed Orders, unless the 12% fee applies as described below.
  2. 2.
    If your shop has made less than $10,000 USD in sales over the prior 365 days (going back to February 20, 2019 and later), as calculated on the first day of the month, you will pay a fee of 15% (as described in the section below) on Attributed Orders, unless you opt out of participation in Offsite Ads for the duration your shop is under the $10,000 USD threshold. The 15% fee and opt-out apply until or unless you at any time meet the $10,000 USD threshold.
  3. 3.
    If at any time your shop has made sales of $10,000 USD or more over the prior 365 days (going back to February 20, 2019 and later), as calculated on the first day of the month, you will subsequently pay a fee of 12% (as described in the section below) on Attributed Orders, as of the beginning of the program if you immediately qualify, and otherwise on the first day of the month following qualification. If you subsequently fall below the $10,000 USD threshold at a later date, you will still only be charged a 12% advertising fee for the lifetime of your shop. If you opted out of participation in Offsite Ads prior to meeting the $10,000 USD threshold, you will be required to participate and will be charged a 12% advertising fee on Attributed Orders for the lifetime of your shop upon reaching the $10,000 USD threshold. The prior opt out while under the $10,000 USD threshold will no longer apply (even if you subsequently fall below the $10,000 USD threshold at a later date).
  4. 4.
    Beginning a month after initial calculations when the program starts, Etsy will perform subsequent calculations on the first day of each calendar month and will give you notice if you have crossed the $10,000 USD threshold.
For the purpose of calculating this $10,000 USD threshold, sales are calculated by multiplying item price by quantity (minus any discounts or formally cancelled orders), but excluding Pattern orders, In Person Payment orders, Etsy fees, or separately charged shipping, taxes, or gift wrap. For sellers with shop currencies other than USD, the $10,000 USD threshold is calculated with the currency exchange rates used by Etsy at the time that the relevant sales were processed. Exchange rates used are variable and are provided by a third party financial services company. For information on how the $10,000 USD threshold is calculated, please see the next section and the Advertising & Marketing Policy.

Subscription Fees

Etsy sellers in good standing may opt-in to Etsy Plus, a subscription package offering an expanded set of tools for growing brands. The fee for an Etsy Plus subscription is $10 USD per month. Etsy Plus subscription fees are deducted from your current balance each month and reflected in your payment account. Where applicable, Etsy will charge sales tax on your monthly subscription fee for sellers located in the United States.

In-Person Selling Fees

You can use the Square reader to process payments for in-person sales. You have the option to sync your Etsy listings with Square. If you choose to sync your listings with Square, listings with multiple quantities will be charged the same $0.20 renewal fee as listings with multiple quantities on Etsy. Non-synced listings will be charged a $0.20 transaction fee, which will appear on your payment account as a “Square manual” fee. In-person selling fees are deducted from your current balance and reflected in your payment account. For more information about in-person selling fees, please see this Help article.
In-person sales processed with the Square reader will not be subject to Etsy’s 6.5% transaction fee or any Etsy payment processing fees, but will be subject to Square’s Payment Processing Fees.

Payment Processing Fees

Online Sales. Eligible Etsy shops may use Etsy Payments to accept certain payments through Etsy (learn more about Etsy Payments below). Payment processing fees are charged for each transaction made through Etsy Payments. Payment processing fees vary based on the location of your bank account. In certain markets, a fixed deposit fee may be charged for the disbursement of seller funds that are under certain designated thresholds. See the Etsy Payments Policy to find payment processing fees and where applicable, deposit fees, by country. The payment processing fee is assessed on the total amount of the sale, including tax and shipping. Payment processing fees are deducted from the sale amount in your payment account. Deposit fees are deducted from your Available Funds and reflected in your payment account at the time of your scheduled deposit.

Shipping Fees

Etsy offers sellers in certain locations the ability to purchase shipping labels to fulfill their orders. The cost of the shipping label will depend on the shipping carrier, and the origin, destination, weight, and dimensions of the package. If you add signature confirmation or insurance, those fees will be added to the total cost of the label at the point of purchase. Sellers who purchase shipping labels may also purchase parcel insurance through licensed insurance carriers. U.S. Sellers who purchase USPS shipping return labels will be charged after delivery of the returned package. You must accept Etsy Payments or PayPal as payment methods to purchase shipping labels through Etsy. Shipping fees and any adjustments are reflected in your payment account and deducted from your current balance.

Regulatory Operating Fees

Sellers in certain countries will be charged a Regulatory Operating fee on each transaction. A Regulatory Operating fee is a fixed percentage of the price you display for each listing plus the amount you charge for shipping, which should include applicable taxes, (including gift wrapping and personalization, if applicable) and is charged, where applicable, in addition to other fees described in this Policy. Regulatory Operating fees may vary per country and are charged as a result of the increased cost of operating in the relevant country, for example, as a result of additional costs of compliance with applicable regulation(s). You can find the countries in which Regulatory Operating fees apply as well as the specific percentage fees for each country in this help article.

Currency Conversion

With the exception of the transaction fee, Offsite Ads fees, the Payment Processing fee, Regulatory Operating fees, and deposit fees, Etsy converts fees from USD to your payment account currency at the market rate at the time the fee is reflected in your payment account. All fees appear in your payment account in your domestic currency. However, Etsy Payments users located in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Romania will have all fees deducted from their payment account in their designated payment account currency, the Euro.
Transaction fees, Offsite Ads fees, Regulatory Operating fees: If you list your items in a currency other than that of your payment account, the transaction fee and, where applicable, the Offsite Ads fee and Regulatory Operating fee will be converted to your payment account currency at the market rate and reflected in your payment account.
To avoid incurring foreign exchange charges on your sales, Etsy recommends you list your items in the same currency as your payment account currency. Buyers see the items in the currency of their choosing. As an Etsy Payments user, if you decide to list in a currency other than that of your payment account, you will be charged a 2.5% currency conversion fee on the sale amount to send funds to your payment account. Learn more about currency conversion here. Currency conversion is handled automatically by our payment processing service and further described in our Etsy Payments Policy.
