Etsy is every crafty entrepreneur’s go-to place to sell their adorable goods. Their market place is inexpensive, easy to use, and takes care of the trickier parts of selling online like processing payments. But as amazing as Etsy is, there are plenty of sellers out there who dream of having their shop on a website of their own. Etsy heard these users loud and clear and developed Pattern by Etsy, a place where users can custom build an e-commerce site to use in connection with their Etsy shop.
Pattern by Etsy allows your business to be separate from the Etsy marketplace, but will still have all the ease and convenience of being an Etsy user. Your custom site takes only minutes to set up if you are already an Etsy seller. Etsy will import all of your shop information and product listings into a theme and color palette of your choosing. Going forward, you will be able to update both your Etsy shop and your website at once. You choose a custom domain or connect to one you already own and then you can start selling! The websites are designed to look good on any device, so there is no need to mess around with code.
Just like Etsy, there is payment processing with a 3.5% transaction fee. You are allowed to list as many items as you want to sell with no additional listing fees and there are no storage limits on your site. The best part of the new selling platform is that they provide you with plenty of data so you can watch your business grow. Pattern by Etsy costs $15 a month, which we think is a steal considering all of the super helpful features!
