Etsy is a marketplace that offers original and highly crafted products that are entirely handmade. Etsy.com, which is internationally located, has reached a wider audience. Etsy, where a wide range of vintage objects, clothes and accessories are found, consists entirely of handmade or vintage products. For this reason, the products sold in Etsy are generally considered as the works of art.
What is Etsy? How to Sell Through Etsy?
Selling on Etsy is really easy. However, since it is an international marketplace, it can be difficult to sell without an intermediate level of English. To start selling on Etsy, you must first open up a store. After entering Etsy.com, you can easily open your store by clicking “Sell On Etsy” section. After you click “Open Your Etsy Shop”, you must fill in all forms with accurate and complete information. After confirming the confirmation e-mail, you can upload products to your store and personalize your store with various arrangements.
At this point, you should make sure that your store reflects you and your brand as close as possible. In particular, you can support your image with convincing visuals, such as photos of your product’s construction process. PayPal is usually used to receive payments from Etsy. However, because of the limited use of PayPal in Turkey, if you do not have a PayPal account opened abroad, you need to turn to a different payment method. There are various domestic initiatives for this, and after you do your research, you can use the local payment method that sells products in your Etsy store and suggests the most appropriate commission rates for you.
Etsy Commission Rates
Opening up a store to sell on Etsy is completely free. In addition, store owners do not pay a net monthly fee. However, for each product listing, you must pay a certain fee per loaded product. This fee is the same as the fees applied in many eCommerce sites abroad. A certain commission fee is charged for each sale. Fees charged by the intermediary company you receive payment during the transfer, or wholesale products may cause extra commission. Here is a detailed list of commission rates by Etsy.
