Problems With Creating an Account
Keep in mind you can check out as a guest instead of creating an account, if you want to purchase on Etsy.
If you can’t create an account, it may be due to a firewall on your internet connection preventing access to certain websites and functions. For example, libraries, businesses, or public wifi may have restrictions on what you can do on their connection.
Please try creating an account from a different internet connection, or, if you’re using a mobile device, try using your mobile data plan to access Etsy.
If the problem persists, it's possible the email address won’t be able to be used to create an Etsy account.
If that’s the case, you may be able to register with a different email address.
