If you are creative and crafty, turn your talent into cash with Etsy! Etsy allows those skilled at creating homemade goods an easy option for selling products online. The global e-commerce website specializes in the sale and purchase of handmade as well as vintage products. The website has been compared to a craft fair where customers can purchase unique products from talented artisans. In exchange for a small fee, Etsy provides sellers with turnkey solutions including a virtual storefront, customer base, and marketing tools. Each seller can setup a dedicated shop on the site, where products can be listed and sold.

Etsy specializes in handmade goods, so use the site for what its best known for (customers come to the site to look for original products). The site has recently accepted non-handmade products, however, these items are subject to approval by Etsy. Opening a shop on Etsy is free, but it does cost money to list and sell products. Additionally, sellers will need to post pictures of the product along with a detailed description with each listing. There’s a low barrier of entry, making it easy and simple to launch your own shop on Etsy.

Setting up an Etsy shop is free, but Etsy does charge a $0.20 listing fee per listing. Listings are valid for 4 months or until an item is sold. Etsy also charges 3.5% of the final sale value. All fees are invoiced at the end of the month. Sellers can get paid on Etsy via Paypal, credit/debit card, Direct Checkout (deposited straight to your bank), a check or a money order.
