What Is a Shipping Transaction Fee?

In your new payment account, you may see a shipping transaction fee under Recent activities if you charge shipping for items in your shop. The shipping transaction fee is a 5% transaction fee on the cost of shipping, which we introduced on July 1, 2018. This is similar to the 5% transaction fee on the item price.

For example: You sell an item on Etsy that costs $30, and $5 for shipping. You’ll pay 5% of the transaction cost and 5% of the shipping transaction cost. This is the same as the 5% transaction fee on a $35 item with free shipping.
