How to List a Digital Item in Your Etsy Shop

Digital items are items that the buyer can download immediately. Listing a digital item is similar to listing any other item on Etsy.

Follow the instructions to list an item on Etsy and choose Digital item under Type. The only additional step for listing a digital item is to add files to your listing.

How to add files to your digital listing

When listing a digital item, you’ll need to upload the files that the buyer is purchasing. You can upload up to five digital files. The maximum size for each file is 20MB. We currently support the following file types:

Audio

  • .mpeg
  • .mp3

Image

  • .gif
  • .jpeg
  • .png
  • .tiff
  • .bmp
  • .pdf

Text

  • .txt

Uploaded files will appear in a list with their names, file sizes, and upload dates. The file names you see will be the same ones your buyers see. We don't have a way of editing the name after uploading, so be sure to name your files appropriately first.

File names are limited to 70 alphanumeric characters, periods, underscores, or hyphens.

Add a note for buyers

You can add a note for buyers that will apply to all digital listings purchased from your shop. After a purchase, a buyer can see the note on their Downloads page.

Can I offer variations for my digital items?

No, you can’t offer variations for digital items.

How to remove a file

If you want to remove a file, click the X next to its listing time/date. You can remove files at any time.
