If you’ve looked at the Etsy website before then you have definitely come across the term “Etsy Plus”. Etsy Plus is a subscription package for Etsy members that differs from the Etsy Shop and offers a wider choice of tools, options and other benefits. The subscription costs $10 per month. Keep in mind that you do not need an Etsy Plus account to sell on Etsy.
Advantages of Etsy Plus
- Choose the design of your shop
Design your own shop symbol, create your own banners and let your creativity run free. There are numerous design options to make your shop unique.
- Highlight specific products
How you present your items is completely up to you! Showcase your products by choosing the layout and size, and adding animations to sell your goods faster!
- Free shop URL for the first year
The shop URL is included in the subscription for the first year.
- Etsy Plus credit
For the duration of your Etsy Plus subscription, you will receive two credits per month, which can be used to pay for any listing fees or EtsyAds: one credit for listing fees for 15 items, one credit of $5 for Etsy Ads.
Note: Unused credits will not be carried over to the next month and will expire if not used.
- Notifications for your customers
With Etsy Plus your customers will be notified as soon as you upload new items or when products become available again to make sure that they never miss out!
Etsy Plus offers a lot of advantages and is a great thing to have. But when you are first starting out the normal version is all you need. If you do become more confident with Etsy over time, it makes sense to switch to Etsy Plus and give the marketing of your handmade products a boost.
