What are the Fees and Taxes for Selling on Etsy?

When you sell on Etsy, you’ll incur fees for using Etsy.com. If you make any sales through Etsy Payments, your fees will automatically be deducted.

If your current balance is negative at the end of the month, you’ll have an amount due on the first on the next month. When your outstanding balance is due, you’ll receive an email from Etsy.

Pay your statement

In the Sell on Etsy app, you can pay your statement and manage your payment account under Finances.

How to view your fees and taxes

To view your Payment account, which includes fees and taxes from selling on Etsy:

  1. Sign in to Etsy.com.
  2. Click Shop Manager.
  3. Click Finances.
  4. Click Payment account.
  5. You can see fees and taxes owed under Recent activities and Fees & Taxes.

Note: All fixed-cost fees, like listings and Pattern, are published in USD. You can see the fixed USD cost for a fee in its description. Etsy converts fees from USD to your payment account currency at the market rate at the time the fee is reflected in your payment account. This conversion may change if currency exchange rates change.
