As seen in the table, there’s no monthly fee for the basic service. An upgraded shop plan, Etsy Plus, includes listing credits and additional features for promotions, shop customisations and more.
The listing cost is charged in USD (converted to GBP when applied) every time you list and relist a product. Listings can be live for up to four months, after which it auto-relists or goes offline (your choice).
If you have more than one of an item, Etsy relists it with the new available stock count after each sale – incurring $0.20 each time. For example, if you have 10 pairs of earrings and someone buys one pair, the listing automatically updates the public stock count of “10” to “9” at a cost of $0.20 each time. That could end up costing $2 USD in listing fees alone for 10 sales of the same item – something to factor into your expenses.
The “transaction fee” is applied to all transactions and delivery charges. This is separate from the Etsy Payments card processing charge of 4% + 20p per transaction, making the total transaction cost 9% + 20p excluding listing fees and VAT (if applicable).
If you receive payments in a bank account that has a different currency than your Etsy transactions, a further 2.5% charge is added to the transaction.
All transactions through Etsy Payments qualify for Seller Protection Policy, which includes fraud detection among other measures to protect you.
