There are three images you can add to the top of your shop homepage to control the look of your shop.
These are your cover photo, banner, and shop icon.
Go to your Shop Manager and click the pencil icon next to your shop name under Sales Channels.
Click Add a cover photo to highlight your brand to add a cover photo or banner.
To change your cover photo or banner, click the camera icon at the bottom right of the image.
To add a shop icon, click the camera icon at the bottom right of the image.
Cover photos are the largest branding asset for your shop. This image appears when viewing your shop on the standard view of the website as well as on mobile devices.
For the clearest possible image, the ideal size for your cover photo is 3360 x 840 pixels. The minimal size is 1200 x 300.
Once you upload a cover photo, you’ll have the option to drag and reposition it at the top of the page.
If you're looking for professionally designed images, you might want to consider shopping from an Etsy seller.
Banners are smaller and are centred at the top of your shop homepage. They do not appear on mobile devices. Your banner will need to be exactly 760 x 100 pixels.
If you choose not to upload a cover photo or small banner, your shop icon will be the most prominent branding on your shop homepage. Doing this moves your listings higher on the page.
To upload a shop icon, sign in to your account on a web browser and go to Shop Manager. Then click the camera icon next to the shop illustration.
Your shop icon needs to be 500 x 500 pixels.
A good shop icon should:
- Reflect your shop’s personality
- Look good both big and small
- Use simple graphics or illustrations
- Keep any text short and easy to read
- Avoid long words or busy backgrounds

Your profile photo appears as your Shop Owner image on your public shop homepage and in Conversations threads.
To upload a profile photo, go to Shop Manager and click the pencil icon next to your shop name under Sales Channels. Then click on the camera icon next to the Shop Owner photo.
Your profile photo needs to be 400 x 400 pixels.
Since the Etsy marketplace is all about creative people, a good profile photo should:
- Be a photo of yourself, such as a close-up or a headshot
- Use bright or natural lighting
- Avoid distant, unclear images
