Etsy opens wholesale for retailers this summer

Etsy opens wholesale for retailers this summer

On 1 August 2014, Etsy Wholesale - the marketplace wholesale - will officially open its doors after going through a beta phase for a year and being invite-only.

Only for America for now

From this summer onwards, Etsy Wholesale will be available for every American retailer after a single registration and a 100 dollar fee. From then, they have to pay Etsy 3.5 % of the price charged in return for the chance to add products from Etsy sellers to their own product range.


Etsy Wholesale is currently only available in English and only US dollar payments are allowed at this point, but the online marketplace says it will add more languages and currencies soon, which would enable Etsy Wholesale to break through in other countries.
