How to Shop on Etsy.com
If you are a trader wishing to open a shop on www.etsy.com where you can list your products and get willing buyers, you can do so by following the instructions below;
#1: Create an Etsy.com Account and Sign In
The first thing you need to do is to create an Etsy.com trading account.
Here's how to go about it;
- Open Etsy.com on your web browser and then click or tap on the "Sell on Etsy" drop-down menu.
- Next, click tap on the "Open your Etsy shop" option.
- You can choose your country of residence and you will also be allowed to select your preferred language, currency and trading schedule. The trading schedule is the time you are willing to commit to the trade and this can either be part-time or full-time.
- You can also give your www.etsy.com shop a catchy name. Note that in choosing your shop name, you will have to meet a certain criterion before your chosen shop name is acceptable.
- Length: The shop name should NOT be less than four (4) characters long and should NOT be more than twenty (20) characters long.
- The shop name should NOT be made up of any profanity.
- There should be NO special characters or spaces in the name.
- The name must be unique and NOT taken by another member of Etsy.com.
- Also, your chosen Etsy.com name should NOT violate or infringe on the trademark of someone else.
The good news is that Etsy automatically provides possible name suggestions where the shop name you input has already been taken.
Once you input your preferred shop name, no one else can take the name and Etsy will keep the shop name for you even as you continue with the opening of your Etsy shop.
#2: Add Products
After providing a shop name, you can decide to add your product list and stock up your virtual Etsy shop.
#3: Select Payment Method
You can select a payment method for your Etsy shop. This is how customers would pay you for buying your listed items.
You can also select "Etsy Payments" which is a payment method that offers potential buyers a variety of ways by which they can pay for items purchased while also harmonizing every payment made for your listed products right in your personal Etsy shop payment account.
Etsy Payment is preferable if your country of residence is eligible for such a payment method.
However, if your country of residence does not qualify for this type of payment method, then you can use an eWallet method like PayPal to receive payments for your traded goods.
It is also possible for you to accept payment via debit or credit cards, such as; American Express, Visa, Discover, MasterCard and if you are residing in France, you can use Carte Bleue.
Once you are done with setting up your shop, click or tap on the "Save and continue" button. You can then click or tap on "Open Your Shop" to launch your Etsy shop and start selling.
You can always modify your settings at any time even after setting up your shop.
A typical www.etsy.com shop web address is https://www.etsy.com/shop/myshopname or https://myshopname.etsy.com
