Details About Etsy Seller Fees
Selling fees on etsy are relatively straightforward. They don't vary based on what you sell so that's a positive aspect when compared to other platforms, but fees are spread out across many different types.
In addition, etsy exists and operates in many regions of the world and some fees only exist in some regions. Of note, one curious aspect of the etsy platform is that all the different regions utilize a common base as opposed to each region having its own mini-platform, per se. So the fees and rates are much more interwoven between the different regions.
- First and foremost is the listing fee. This is charged right when you create a listing and will be repeatedly charged when an expired listing is renewed.
- The listing fee is $0.20 USD per listing and listings expire after 4 months.
- Etsy also provides automatic renewal of listings so you won't have to manually renew your listing when a listing expires.
- It is important to note that the listing fee is always described in US Dollars regardless of the region of the seller. Etsy will simply convert it into your local currency based on the latest exchange rates. In other words, the listing fee will naturally fluctuate for every region outside of the United States.
- The second main fee is the transaction fee. This is a flat rate of 6.5% on the sales revenue, which includes shipping and gift wrap, if present.
Etsy Payments Fee
- Most regions on the platform are now using the Etsy Payments system as their payment processor.
- There are several different types of fees associated with Etsy Payments depending on the seller's region and their currency settings. These include the main processing fee, the deposit currency conversion fee, the regulatory operating fee, and the deposit fee.
- The main processing fee varies depending on your region and is applied on the total amount of the sale, which includes shipping, gift wrap, and sales tax, if present. The table below shows the fees per region.

Deposit Currency Conversion Fee
- By default, the base currency of an etsy shop is set to be the same as that of the seller's native currency. However, sellers have an option to change the base currency used by their shops and thus their listings.
- If you change your shop's base currency to something other than your native currency, an extra 2.5% conversion fee will be charged on all deposits.
- That being said, there is generally no need to change your shop's base currency as etsy will already automatically convert the prices from your base currency to the buyer's currency. The only reason one might change their shop's base currency is if you want nice round numbers in a particular currency for a target region. However, given the extra fee that is incurred, this is almost always not worth it.
- As far as our calculator goes, the deposit currency conversion fee, if present, is included as part of the payment fee row.
Regulatory Operating Fee
- Starting from July 1st, 2021, an additional regulatory operating fee exists for sellers located in certain regions. This is a percentage based fee that varies based on the seller location. Etsy had introduced this in order to offset the additional costs required to follow new regulations introduced by these regions. For example, some of these regulations take on the form of a digital services tax.
- Note that this fee is applied on the item price, shipping charge, and any additional revenue from gift wrap and personalization, if applicable.
- As far as our calculator goes, the regulatory operating fee, if present, is included as part of the payment fee row.
|Location of Seller||Regulatory Operating Fee|
- A few regions have special rules relating to deposits which refers to the funds you receive from etsy and transfer into your bank account. For these regions, there exists a deposit minimum, a fee threshold, and a potential deposit fee.
- The deposit minimum describes the minimum amount of funds within etsy that you need in order to be able to receive and transfer them into your bank account.
- The fee threshold describes if you will be charged a deposit fee. If your deposit is smaller than the threshold, you will be charged. On the other hand, if your deposit is larger than the threshold, you will not be charged.
- Since this fee has nothing to do with single orders and only concerns a small minority of regions, our calculator does not include a dedicated field for it. If you want to factor this in, simply add it into one of the cost fields.
|Country||Deposit Minimum||Fee threshold||Deposit fee|
|Indonesia||28,000.00 IDR||1,400,000.00 IDR||28,000.00 IDR|
|Israel||7.00 ILS||350.00 ILS||7.00 ILS|
|Malaysia||9.00 MYR||400.00 MYR||8.00 MYR|
|Mexico||40.00 MXN||2,000.00 MXN||40.00 MXN|
|Morocco||20.00 MAD||1,000.00 MAD||20.00 MAD|
|Philippines||100.00 PHP||5,000.00 PHP||100.00 PHP|
|South Africa||35.00 ZAR||1,500.00 ZAR||30.00 ZAR|
|Turkey||50.00 TRY||600.00 TRY||42.00 TRY|
|Vietnam||45,000.00 VND||2,300,000.00 VND||45,000.00 VND|
Offsite Ad Fee
- As with all platforms, advertising is a big deal. One way that etsy advertises itself is through a program called offsite ads in which they select individual listings (which may or may not include yours) and advertising them in places that include search engine results, social media sites, Etsy Publishing Partner sites, and Google Display Network sites. Those who make a sale from an offsite ad are charged an offsite ad fee.
- For sellers that made at least $10,000 USD on etsy in the past 365 days, participation in this offsite ad program is mandatory and automatic. Furthermore, sellers must then stay in the program for the lifetime of their shop. The offsite ad fee rate for these sellers stands at 12%. If you are a seller who fits this criteria, you must toggle the offsite option in our calculator and specify your sales status in order for our calculator to include this in the calculations.
- On the other hand, for sellers that made under $10,000 USD on etsy in the past 365 days, participation in the offsite ad program is optional. For sellers that do decide to participate, the offsite ad fee rate is a little higher at 15%.
- It is important to note that there is a maximum cap of $100 USD on the offsite ad fee regardless of seller status.
- While all the amounts above are described in US Dollars, etsy will automatically apply the latest currency conversion rates to process and calculate your fees, if any.
Notes about Sales Tax
In places like the United States, etsy automatically collects sales tax from buyers and remits sales tax on behalf of sellers when applicable in most states. In other words, it is the buyer who pays this tax so this will not directly cut into your profit. However, it can still indirectly affect your profit since the total sale amount used in the payment fee calculation includes sales tax.
Since sales tax is so extremely varied, we do not automatically provide this information but we do provide a field where you can enter it if desired.
To look up the sales tax rate in the United States, please visit our United States sales tax rates and calculator page to access our full sales tax rate database.
To look up the sales tax rate in Canada, please visit our Canada sales tax rates and calculator page to access our full sales tax rate database.
Notes about VAT
In some regions, sales tax manifests in the form of a value added tax (VAT) which can then be further classified into more specific terms which include Goods and Services Tax (GST), etc. For example, places where VAT exist include Canada, the UK, the European Union, Australia, and New Zealand among others. How VAT works is that it is applied not only on the sales revenue paid by the buyer, but also on everything else, which includes the fees paid by the seller as well. Fortunately, many regions do allow sellers to reclaim the VAT on fees and costs for business related transactions.
Since VAT doesn't exist everywhere and varies wildly from place to place, our calculator includes an optional field for it that you can use if it is applicable to your situation. On the other hand, if it doesn't apply to you or you're able to reclaim VAT, you can leave that field disabled.
To represent reclaiming VAT on your costs in our calculator, simply subtract the VAT from your costs and enter the smaller cost numbers into the cost fields.
For more information about VAT, please visit etsy's website or consult with a tax professional.
Notes about Paypal
Due to the fact that etsy has transitioned away from paypal to their in house payment processing solution for most regions and will continue doing so, our calculator does not include paypal as an option since it is mostly irrelevant now.
Note that this doesn't mean buyers can't pay with paypal for regions that use Etsy Payments as the payment processor. Buyers can still pay with paypal, but the fees that sellers see will come from Etsy Payments as opposed to from paypal.
- While we try our best to stay up to date with changes in fee rules and structures, estimated results are just estimates. They are not a guarantee of future results. It is your responsibility to conduct your own due diligence before making any business decision. Nothing here constitutes advice.
- If you notice that the fees have changed or if you notice a major miscalculation or error with our calculator, feel free to direct message us on twitter and let us know. However, if you have specific questions regarding your etsy account, please directly contact etsy support.
