Before you purchase
Create an account. It’s quick and free. Go to the Etsy homepage and click Register at the top right of the site.
Look over the shop’s policies by clicking the Policies link in on any shop's homepage. Check to see if they accept returns and exchanges, offer shipping upgrades, or give refunds.

Contact the seller
Have a question about an item or order? Reach out to the seller directly. They can help you with questions like:
- Do you have this in another size or colour?
- Can you ship this faster?
- When can I expect my order?
On a listing, click shop policies in the listing overview. Here you’ll see the shipping rates. Each seller decides how they ship.
Ready to check out?
Select Buy it now on the listing to purchase just that item right away.
Otherwise, click Add to cart and either Keep shopping to go back to the shop or Proceed to checkout.
If you decide to save an item for later, click Save for later. This will move the item to the saved for later section of your cart.
It’s up to each seller what payment methods they accept, so this can vary.
You may be able to pay with:
- Credit/Debit card
- Etsy Gift Card or Etsy Credit
- Money order
- Bank transfer
- Apple Pay
- Android Pay
- Other (This means the seller has some other way of accepting payments. If you select this, you won’t submit payment while checking out. Check their shop policies and work with the seller to pay.)
Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
If you’ve received an Etsy Gift Card or Etsy Credit, first redeem it so you can use it. Not all shops accept gift cards and credits, but you can run a search and check Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits on the left to find ones that do.
If you’ve got a coupon code from your seller, click Apply shop coupon code for your item in your cart. You can only use a coupon code in the shop that offers it. Learn more.
Leave a review
Reviews are really important to sellers for building their reputation. It also lets other buyers know about your purchasing experience. Learn how to leave a review.
Please know that we recommend contacting the seller first if you're unhappy with anything.

Buying from an Etsy-powered website
Etsy sellers have the option to launch their own websites that feature all of the products from their Etsy shop. Etsy-powered websites will say “Powered by Etsy” in the footer.
Throughout the checkout process, you'll see a Sign in link at the bottom of the page, where you can click to sign in to your Etsy account before you purchase. If you don't have an account, you can continue the checkout process as a guest.
If you're an Etsy member, your order can be viewed within the Etsy account you used to make the purchase. You can also contact the seller from the Orders page of your account.
If you have a problem with an order you placed on an Etsy-powered website using guest checkout, please take a look at this Help article.
Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits can be used on Etsy-powered websites, but you must be signed in to an Etsy account.
