Who are Etsy sellers?

Each item on Etsy is listed and sold by a seller who creates handmade items or curates vintage or craft supply goods. There’s no Etsy warehouse. When you shop on Etsy, you’re directly supporting independent sellers who manage their own orders and inventory.

How do I shop on Etsy?

Shopping on Etsy works the same as anywhere else online. However, you’re not buying your items from Etsy, the company. Instead you’re buying directly from independent sellers.

If you have questions about an item or an order, you can contact the seller.
