3- Create your storefront

Once you create an account,

Create a user profile. Introduce yourself as the shop manager and put a face to the products you’re selling through the marketplace. Give potential customers confidence a human is on the other side of the screen.

Tell people about your new store. What do you sell? Why? How did your store come to life? Give first-time visitors to your new Etsy storefront a bit of background about you and why they should buy your products.

Upload your shop policies. Delivery, payment options, privacy, exchange and return policies are essential. Make the terms of buying from your store clear to avoid any confusion with customers.

4- Upload products

Create a new listing for each product you’re selling through the marketplace.

This includes:

  • A product title
  • Information about the listing, including who made it and when
  • The product category
  • The listing type (more on this later)
  • Whether it’s a physical or digital product
  • A product description containing your unique selling poin

5- Set the pricing for your product

Set the pricing for your product under the general section. Enter the amount someone will pay for the item.

6- Set the Inventory for your product

Set the inventory for your product under the Inventory section. Enter the number items you have available, and the SKU (if you use them).

7- The shipping information

Upload the shipping information customers will need to know when buying your product through your store. Specify where you’re shipping the product from and your average processing time—how long it takes for you to pick, pack, and ship the item once they place an order. 

Choose whether you want to offer fixed postage prices or delivery upgrades. If you’re shipping items to international customers, add a tariff number for customs.
