Here at Western Frontier Traders we love Etsy jewellery, but selling your jewellery on Etsy is a whole other ball game.
Etsy is a widely used tool for many jewellery makers who use it as an open market to sell their handmade jewellery.
However there are fees involved in using Etsy and it’s important that sellers are mindful of the costs involved when retailing on any platform, as it affects your pricing calculations.
Etsy has increased their fees from five per cent to six point five per cent from April 11, 2022.
This increase applies to their Transaction Fee which is one of many fees you pay for using the Etsy platform.
What are the Etsy fees?
Listing Fee – A Listing Fee is required each time you list a stunning piece of jewellery on Etsy.
The listing will be active in your store for four months.
If you sell multiples of the same item, this will automatically repeat each time the item sells (charging you each time).
If you have a private listing, you won’t pay the listing fee until the item sells.
Transaction Fee – For every sale you make through Etsy, you will pay a fee of six point five per cent.
This includes the price of the item plus any postage and gift wrapping or personalisation fees you charge.
Etsy Payment Processing Fees –
If you use Etsy Payments, you will have to pay a fee for each transaction processed on the full order amount.
This fee depends on your location.
Offsite Ads Fee – Etsy spends money on advertising the listings on their site.
If your buyer comes to you through an advertised listing and buys an item from your shop within 30 days, you will pay an Offsite Ads Fee.
This fee depends on your sales total for the 365 days beforehand – make less than ten thousand and it’s a 15 per cent fee, make over ten thousand and it’s 12 per cent.
Regulatory Operating Fee – You may need to pay, depending on your location.
This fee is a percentage of your item’s sale price plus postage.
