On Etsy, your gross sales is your income before expenses are subtracted. Your 1099-K gross sales won’t match other payment totals in your shop, like your revenue, your deposit amounts, or your net profit, which all subtract expenses.
Your gross sales is the total amount your buyers have paid you, for the entire year, without subtracting expenses, such as:
- Shipping costs
- Sales tax collected by you
Note this isn’t a complete list of expenses that may not be reflected on your 1099-K form.
If you run more than one Etsy shop, your 1099-K will add all your sales between each shop that has the same taxpayer ID number on file, and the same 1099-K will be available for download in each shop.
In some cases, Etsy collects sales tax from buyers and remits it to tax authorities on behalf of sellers. If Etsy has collected tax on your behalf, these amounts won’t appear on your 1099-K form.
Why doesn't my gross sales match my revenue, deposits, or net profit?
Your 1099-K gross sales won’t match other payment totals in your shop, like your revenue, your deposit amounts, or your net profit.
On Etsy, your gross sales adds all the money that buyers pay for orders that then goes into your Payment account. No expenses or refunds are subtracted from this amount.
Amounts like your revenue, your deposits, and your net profit all subtract expenses such as Etsy fees, sales tax you collect, refunds, and shipping costs.
According to the IRS, “gross amount means the total dollar amount of total reportable payment transactions for each participating payee without regard to any adjustments for credits, cash equivalents, discount amounts, fees, refunded amounts, or any other amounts. The dollar amount of each transaction is determined on the date of the transaction.”
The amounts you see in your Payment account, Stats, and CSV file all have different meanings.
Revenue usually equals your sales minus any discounts you provided to buyers. This total doesn’t factor in selling fees, shipping costs, or orders you fully refunded and canceled. Learn more about how your revenue is calculated in Stats.
Available for deposit
Your Available for deposit amount is ready to be deposited to your bank account. It includes available sales funds minus refunds, fees and taxes, and any funds that have been placed in a reserve.
Net profit is the total of funds from your sales, minus any refunds, fees, shipping costs, and taxes. Net profit is displayed in the Activity summary in your Payment account.
Amount and Order totals in CSV files
You can download CSV spreadsheet files that you can use to make calculations and keep track of your listing and sales history. Learn how to download CSVs.
The Amount in your Etsy Payments Deposit CSV equals available sales funds minus refunds, fees and taxes, and any funds that have been placed in a reserve.
