Etsy charges you a listing fee of $0.20 USD for each item that you list on Etsy. When you list multiple quantities of the same item, listings will be automatically renewed at $0.20 USD after each of the items sells.
Etsy will also automatically renew your listings at the end of the four-month listing period.
When you make a sale through Etsy, you pay a transaction fee of 5% of the price you display for each listing plus, the amount you charge for shipping and gift wrapping. Different practices also apply depending on where you sell.
In those cases Etsy collects sales tax, VAT, GST, or HST, the transaction fee will not apply to the taxes. However, in those cases you collect taxes, the transaction fee applies to the listing price, which includes applicable taxes.
You pay a processing fee for each transaction through Etsy Payments. The payment processing fee varies depending on the location of your bank account. In specific markets, you also pay a fixed deposit fee.
If your shop currency is different from the bank account currency, Etsy will charge a 2.5% currency conversion fee.
If you are using Etsy Offsite Ads, Etsy will charge you for each order attributed to an Offsite Ad. The fee depends on the amount you made from the sale and your total revenue.
Margin describes the percentage of your revenue that has turned into profit. You can increase your margin by either raising your prices or lowering your costs. In a break-even scenario, when your revenue is just sufficient to cover your expenses, your profit and margin is 0%.
Return or Return on Investment (ROI) is your profit divided by your expenses. In other words, your return for the investment compared to the investment cost. Use ROI to compare the profitability of different investments.
The effective fee rate is an excellent method for calculating how much of your revenue that you pay to Etsy. You calculate your effective fee rate by dividing the total fees with the total revenue.
Value Added Tax (VAT) and Goods & Services Tax (GST) are taxes on goods and services sold for consumption. VAT is included in the final prices and is later passed to the government by the business owner. The percentage of tax added varies between countries.
