What is Etsy?
Find things you'll love. Support independent sellers. Only on Etsy.
A community doing good
Etsy is a global online marketplace, where people come together to make, sell, buy, and collect unique items. We’re also a community pushing for positive change for small businesses, people, and the planet. Here are some of the ways we’re making a positive impact, together.
Support independent creators
There’s no Etsy warehouse – just millions of people selling the things they love. We make the whole process easy, helping you connect directly with makers to find something extraordinary.
Peace of mind
Your privacy is the highest priority of our dedicated team. And if you ever need assistance, we are always ready to step in for support.
Keep Commerce Human
In a time of increasing automation, it’s our mission to keep human connection at the heart of commerce. That’s why we built a place where creativity lives and thrives because it’s powered by people. We help our community of sellers turn their ideas into successful businesses. Our platform connects them with millions of buyers looking for an alternative—something special with a human touch, for those moments in life that deserve imagination.
As a company, we strive to lead with our guiding principles and to help spread ideas of sustainability and responsibility whose impact can reach far beyond our own business.
How Etsy Works
Our global marketplace is a vibrant community of real people connecting over special goods. The platform empowers sellers to do what they love and helps buyers find what they love.
With low fees, powerful tools, and support and education, we help creative entrepreneurs start, manage, and scale their businesses. Want to become an Etsy seller? All it takes is 20 cents to get started.
We provide the technology behind the Etsy marketplace, helping buyers and sellers connect and exchange on Etsy. Keeping those connections safe, fun and secure is our priority, and we’re always here to help.
