    Avoid it at all costs!!! We are a legitimate clothing business registered in the US. Etsy terminated our shop one day after we made an account with no notice and when I reach them out, (after like a week) they replied this:”After a comprehensive review of your account, Etsy has determined it violates our Terms of Service or House Rules. As a result, Etsy has permanently closed your account.Please do not open any additional accounts for buying or selling, as they will be closed without notice.This decision is final and we will not respond to any further outreach about your account. This email constitutes our final communication on this matter.”Could not be ruder than this to a customer!!! Not even said hi back to me!!!!

    Etsy, my experience as a former short time store owner, ABSOLUTE NEGATIVE !!!l  Etsy deactivated my store in the middle of the transaction !!  No warning no explanation no reason at all.. Etsy collected a couple of hundred dollars from my buyer and closed my store. I was unable to contact the seller or Etsy. There is no way to contact Etsy when your store closed.. Let me explain a couple of critical issues at Etsy, there is no such thing as customer service In contrast what you read in this article Etsy automatically signs you up for their own offsite advertising which would cost you an extra 15% of commission on top of the 8% of commission !!  All together 23% of commission you pay plus a lot of smaller fee at the end of your sale. You pay a commission on shipping cost to. Literally you have no choice but offering free shipping. In short I had a really bad experience at Etsy but, before you do business read Better Business Bureau, TrustPilot and their own Etsy community forum.  Then you decide.
