What is Pattern?

Pattern is an easy way to set up your own website for your brand, in addition to your Etsy shop. A website can give your business more exposure and help you reach new potential buyers outside of the Etsy marketplace. With Pattern, you’ll have access to a variety of tools that help you reach new buyers while strengthening your brand.

Pattern is an additional channel for your business. It does not replace your existing Etsy shop. If you choose to set up a website, we’ll automatically import most content and inventory from your shop. From there, you’ll be able to customize it for your site. Any changes you make on Pattern won’t affect your Etsy shop.

Fees

It’s free to test out Pattern features and design a custom website. If you publish your website, you’ll begin a 30-day trial. After the free trial period is over, your Pattern subscription will begin and you'll see a USD$15.00 charge on your Payment account each month, plus tax where it applies. Note that you will see this USD charge amount converted to your currency if your Payment account is based in another currency. You can cancel Pattern at any time.

Domains

A domain can be a helpful tool in promoting your website and creating a unique brand identity. You have the option to register a new domain directly from the Pattern Dashboard, or you can point an existing domain you’ve registered for your brand to your website. If you don’t want to register a domain, you’re welcome to use the default Pattern domain assigned to your website.

Additional features

We’ll import all content and inventory from your Etsy shop, but you’ll be able to customise most of it for your website. Here are some features and customisation options available for Pattern:
