Updated

Etsy is a global online community of designers, sellers, and lovers of unique items. It provides a marketplace-like platform that allows sellers to share their passion with others, and buyers to find items that are truly individual and made with love. Etsy also has a section for collectors and lovers of vintage items.

Why shop from Etsy?

There’s nothing worse than bumping into someone wearing the same iconic graphic tee. Or showing up at a party wearing that new, little black dress to find your friend showed up an hour earlier wearing it in blue.

With 32 million items for sale from more than a million different sellers, Etsy’s got a massive collection of just about everything from clothes and jewellery to arts and crafts, many of which are one-off and handmade items from all around the world. So, there’s a good chance that what you’re purchasing is pretty unique.

Items sold here aren’t mass produced, and it’s designed to be like a neighbourhood or local marketplace that’s available online.

Etsy Review | Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Unique products. Etsy is known for its outstanding selection of hand-made and unique items made by designers from all over the world.
  • Gift cards are available. Get them a gift you know that they will love. Gift cards are available in various amounts and are a great idea for a present for that person who has everything.
  • Secure marketplace. All purchases are recorded, and guidelines for fairness and trust are set-out in the Etsy policies.

Cons

  • International shipping costs and times. One of the best things is its global reach. If you are planning to make a purchase from an internationally based seller, be sure to check the shipping costs and delivery times, which could be higher compared with a domestically based store.

How does Etsy shipping and delivery work?

Shipping fees and delivery policies are set by the individual sellers and are outlined on the product page. If you are not sure about the shipping terms, fees, and expected delivery times, contact the seller directly. Keep in mind that shipping fees may cost more and delivery may take a little longer if you’re buying from internationally based sellers.


What forms of payment does Etsy accept?

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Discover
  • American Express

What is the Etsy returns policy?

Etsy returns, refunds and cancellation policies are handled directly by each seller. If there is a problem with the order, or with your purchase, you are advised to contact the seller directly to resolve the issue. In the case that the issue cannot be resolved, the Etsy Trust & Safety team can step in to mediate and to help everybody reach a resolution. All sellers and buyers must abide by the company’s guidelines on trust and fairness.
