Etsy Fee Calculator: How to Calculate Your Etsy Selling Fees

If you're an Etsy seller, it's essential to understand how Etsy calculates its fees. Etsy charges sellers fees for listing, selling, and processing payments. However, calculating these fees can be confusing and time-consuming. Fortunately, Etsy has a built-in fee calculator to help you determine your fees quickly and accurately.

What Are the Fees Charged by Etsy?

Etsy charges two primary fees to sellers:

  1. Listing Fee: A $0.20 fee is charged to list each item on Etsy. This fee is charged regardless of whether the item sells.
  2. Transaction Fee: A 5% fee is charged on the total amount of the sale, including shipping and gift wrapping costs. The transaction fee also includes the cost of the item sold and any sales tax charged to the buyer.

Etsy also offers several optional services with additional fees, such as Etsy Ads, Etsy Shipping Labels, and Etsy Payments.

How to Use the Etsy Fee Calculator

The Etsy fee calculator is a simple and easy-to-use tool that helps sellers determine their fees quickly and accurately. Here's how to use it:

Step 1: Go to the Etsy Fee Calculator

First, go to the Etsy Fee Calculator page, which can be found on Etsy's website or by searching "Etsy Fee Calculator" in your preferred search engine.

Step 2: Enter the Sale Price

Next, enter the sale price of your item in the "Sale Price" field. The sale price is the total price the buyer pays for the item, including shipping or gift-wrapping costs.

Step 3: Choose the Currency

Choose the currency in which you want to view your fees. Etsy supports multiple currencies, so select the correct one for your region.

Step 4: Click "Calculate"

After you've entered the sale price and chosen your currency, click the "Calculate" button. The Etsy Fee Calculator will automatically calculate the listing fee, transaction fee, and total fees.

Step 5: Review Your Fees

Review the fees that the calculator has generated for you. The fees will be broken down into the listing, transaction, and total fees. Make sure to review the fees carefully and ensure that they are accurate.

total Fees = Listing Fee + Transaction Fee + Payment Processing Fee

  • Listing Fee: $0.20 per item listed for sale on Etsy
  • Transaction Fee: 5% of the item's sale price (including shipping and handling fees)
  • Payment Processing Fee: 3% + $0.25 per transaction for payments processed through Etsy Payments or PayPal

Example Calculation:

Let's say you're selling a handmade necklace for $50. You charge $5 for shipping, and the buyer is located in a state where sales tax is 7%. Here's how to calculate your fees using the Etsy Fee Calculator:

  1. Enter the Sale Price: $50 (item) + $5 (shipping) = $55
  2. Choose the Currency: USD
  3. Click "Calculate"

The Etsy Fee Calculator will generate the following fees:

  • Listing Fee: $0.20
  • Transaction Fee: $2.75 (5% of $55)
  • Sales Tax: $3.85 (7% of $55)
  • Total Fees: $6.80

Your total fee for selling the handmade necklace on Etsy would be $6.80.
