How to Shop with the Etsy App

With the Etsy app you can browse, search for items and shops, and make purchases on the go.

The app has many of the same features that you see on your desktop browser.

How to find recommendations and videos

  • Items
  • Shops
  • Searches: These are your recent search requests. You can favourite search terms so you can quickly access them for future searches.

If you’re using the Etsy app for iOS, you can also see when a shop you favourited has new items in their shop, when one of your favourite items is almost sold out, and when a shop you favourited has items back in stock.
