Currency Settings for Shopping on Etsy

Sellers: Learn how to set your shop currency.

You can choose the currency in which you view items on the site. Sign in and go to Your Account > Account settings > Preferences.

You can also use the region bar at the bottom of any Etsy page: 

  • When a shop’s items are listed in a different currency, Etsy provides an approximate conversion based on current exchange rate data.
  • When buying from a seller who lists in a currency other than your browsing currency, Etsy will convert the listing price for you. When a conversion is required, Etsy applies 2.5% to the current market exchange rate.

For the Etsy for iOS app, the currency you see on the app matches the Region of your device. To change your currency, go to Settings > General > Language & Region on your device.

Paying by credit or debit card

Credit and debit card transactions on Etsy are currently supported in 12 major currencies. However, Etsy allows shoppers to browse the site in an additional 11 currencies.

  • If you’re viewing the site in one of our 12 supported checkout currencies, the entire checkout process will be in that currency.

  • If you happen to be viewing the site in one of our additional 11 currencies, you’ll be prompted to pay in the seller’s listing currency.

Note: If you check out in a currency other than your credit card’s currency, you may be subject to a currency conversion fee from your card issuer.

Please check with your credit card provider for information on any applicable fees.

Paying with PayPal

If you pay through PayPal, PayPal will provide automatic currency conversion based on the seller’s listing currency.

Contact PayPal directly for more details regarding how they determine their currency conversion rates and fees.

Other payment methods

For all other international payment methods (e.g. money order, personal check), you and the seller should discuss the currency of the payment using Etsy Messages before you place your order.

Note: Due to regular fluctuations, Etsy cannot guarantee the accuracy, timeliness, reliability, or completeness of the currency rates displayed on the site. This feature is for informational purposes only.
