Etsy, like any other selling platform, charges a fee. Use our Etsy fees calculator to figure out how much money you’re making at the end of each sale. Understanding the cost to sell on Etsy is very important as it is for every business. Knowing the true net profit with a profit and loss sheet will make sure you’re not losing money every month.
Etsy does charge a flat fee of $.20 cents per listing plus a 6.5% transaction fee. There are also payment processing fees which vary between different countries. USA sellers will pay 3% + $.25 cents.
Our Etsy fee calculator will require you to put all your fees into the required boxes above to give you a final net price. The required boxes are the different price points for each set of costs. Those costs can vary depending on what you sold, how you sold it, etc. The main points to consider are the product cost, listing, transactions, processing (intermediary fees if you’re receiving foriegn currency outside of the USD) and ad fees.
If you were wondering, you can absolutely sell your products in person, through the Etsy app. Although there are fees to pay, they are much less than what it would usually be. You still need to pay the $.20 cents renewal fee. You will also be charged a 2.75% transaction fee for orders that the credit card is swiped. If you enter the number manually, it is 3.5% + $0.15 cents.
When you’re a buyer, you don’t necessarily have any fees, but your final total price may not match what the subtotal or price on the product is. Sometimes, you need to account for shipping costs, taxes and subtract any discounts that may apply.
