United States Etsy Fees Structure

Selling on Etsy is wonderful and a godsend for independent creators. For sellers, it is usually cheaper than other global marketplaces such as eBay.

There are a few basic Etsy charges:

  • Listing fee
  • Transaction fee
  • Etsy payment processing fee (if you registered for it)
  • Offsite ads fee (optional)
  • Etsy Ads (optional)

If you are not enrolled in Etsy payment, you can use PayPal for payment processing.

For more info on Etsy fees, go to their main seller page or detail breakdown on fees and taxes.

Etsy Fees

Publishing a listing costs $0.20 and it lasts for four months or until the item is sold. After the item was sold, there is a transaction fee of 5% base on the total sale price (sale price + shipping price).

If you are enrolled in Etsy Payments, Etsy will also take 3% of the total transaction amount (sale price + shipping price + sales tax) plus $0.25 per order.

For example, the sale price of an item is $100 and the shipping price is $10. Sales tax of the buyer's state is 8%.

  • Etsy listing fee is $0.20
  • Etsy transaction fee is ($100 + $10) * 0.05 = $5.50
  • Etsy payment processing fee is (($100 + $10) * 1.08) * 0.03 + $0.25 = $3.81
  • Total Etsy fee is $0.20 + $5.50 + $3.81 = $9.51

If you opt for PayPal, then ignore the Etsy payment processing fee. PayPal has its processing fee as stated further below.

Offsite Ads Fees

Etsy's Offsite Ads are based on your total sale price (sale price + shipping price). The fee for an order will never exceed $100, regardless of the order total.

For more details, please check out Etsy's page about Offsite Ads.

Etsy Ads Fees
