How to Open a Second Shop on Etsy

Quick answer

To run more than one shop, create a new Etsy account with a different email address, and open a new shop on the new account.

You’re welcome to run multiple shops at once on Etsy.

You will need:

  • A separate Etsy account for each shop
  • A separate email address on file with each account

To open a second Etsy shop, sign out and create a new account with a new shop:

  1. On, choose Your account.
  2. Select Sign out.
  3. Select Sign in.
  4. Choose Register.
  5. Enter an email address not associated with another Etsy shop, enter your name, and create a password. Select Register.
  6. Follow the steps to open your shop.

If you choose to run multiple shops on Etsy, you must list all the shops you run in the Public Profile section of each account. Each account must also comply with Etsy’s Seller Policy

Keep track of what email and password you use for each account and shop. If you have trouble finding your order or sales history in your account, you might be signed in to the wrong account. Here’s how to sign in and out of Etsy.

Should I open a new shop or re-brand my existing account? 

The strategy you use with your shops should reflect the unique needs of your business. If you want to introduce a new line of products that is very different from your existing brand, a second shop may be useful. 

As an alternative, using shop sections to arrange and organize your inventory can help showcase the different types of products you offer in a single Etsy shop. 

Can I use the same credit card or bank information as my other shop?

Yes, you can use the same credit card for seller registration as well as the same bank account if you sign up for Etsy Payments. 

You must use the same taxpayer ID and address when applicable. Learn how to update your taxpayer ID.

Can I use the same email address as my other Etsy shop?

No, to open a second shop on Etsy, you'll need to register for a new account with another email address. This is because each Etsy account can only have one shop and one email address at a time.

You can change your email address on an Etsy account to free it up for use on another account. Learn how.

Can I use the same web browser for both of my Etsy shops?

Most browsers won't allow you to be signed in to multiple Etsy accounts at one time. For this reason, it may help to use different browsers for each account. That way you don't have to keep signing out and signing back in.

Can I combine or transfer info from one shop to another?

No, we don’t have a way to move shop info from one account to another or combine shops on one account.
