What are the Fees and Taxes for Selling on Etsy

When you sell on Etsy, you incur fees for using certain services. 

Your balance from sales, fees, and taxes is calculated and displayed in your Payment account. Learn how to manage your Payment account.

If you’re enrolled in Etsy Payments, your fees are automatically deducted from funds from sales. If your balance is negative at the end of the month, you’ll have an amount due on the first of the next month. When your outstanding balance is due, you’ll receive an email from Etsy.

Currency conversion

All fixed-cost fees, like listings and Pattern, are published in USD. You can see the fixed USD cost for a fee in its description. Etsy converts fees from USD to your payment account currency at the market rate at the time the fee is reflected in your payment account. This conversion may change if currency exchange rates change.
