If you don’t see a confirmation email

If you don’t see a confirmation email from Etsy: 

  • Check to make sure that it hasn't ended up in your spam or junk mail folder 
  • If you're using Gmail, check your Social and Promotions tabs 

How to sign in to your new account

Go to www.etsy.com and select Sign in.

When you're ready, add a profile picture and fill out your bio on your Public Profile page.

If you want to open a shop, select Open a shop at the bottom of the site.

Why can’t I create an account? 

You can check out as a guest instead of creating an account, if you want to purchase on Etsy.

If you can’t create an account, it may be due to a firewall on your internet connection preventing access to certain websites and functions. For example, libraries, businesses, or public Wi-Fi may have restrictions on what you can do on their connection.

Please try creating an account from a different internet connection, or, if you’re using a mobile device, try using your mobile data plan to access Etsy.

If the problem persists, it's possible the email address won’t be able to be used to create an Etsy account.

If that’s the case, you may be able to register with a different email address.
