Etsy was founded in 2005 by Robert Kalin, Chris Maguire, Haim Schoppik, and Jared Tarbell, and quickly took off thanks to its user-friendly layout and web 2.0 design. It managed to carve out its own niche against giants like Ebay and Amazon because it focusses on handmade goods, rather than mass produced commercial products. It does however still allow the sale of items that are not strictly handmade.
During its 2015 IPO the company was valued at $1.8 billion and raised $237 million.
Today Chad Dickerson serves as CEO, President and Chairman of the company.
Although Etsy focusses on handmade products, since around 2009 they now also accept factory made items as well, making them fairly similar to other online marketplaces in terms of selection. Products are spread across several easy to browse categories, including Apparel & Accessories, Watches & Jewellery, Arts & Crafts and Supplies, Wedding Products, Electronics, Books, Films & Music, Home Furnishings & Decor, Outdoor Living, Baby & Kids, and Vintage.
If you have an Etsy coupon code this can be redeemed for products in any of the above categories unless otherwise stated.
The site is very easy to use, allowing you to browse through the above categories and many subcategories, or you can use the search bar if you have something specific in mind. Once on a category page product listings can be further sorted by color and features, price range, and other parameters. There are also handy user reviews, ratings, and seller feedback, to help you make up your mind. You can then simply add products to your cart like a typical eCommerce site.
Etsy connects with its customers on most major social media platforms, where you can get special deals from time to time.
The store all supports other businesses and bulk buyers from a special Wholesale page.
Etsy supports a wide range of payment methods. You can use most common credit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Disoover. As well as Apple Pay and several other platforms. You can also checkout and pay using your Paypal account.
It should be noted that not every seller offers every payment method, but this will be clear before checking out.
If you want to apply a Etsy coupon code to your order simply enter it in to the special promotional box ahead of payment, and you should see your total order cost drop if it's valid.
Because Etsy is mostly made up of third party sellers, shipping options, costs and times can vary. Likewise while all sellers must at least serve the 48 contiguous US states, some will also ship internationally. The main courier is the USPS.
The best way to discover all of this information is to look on the product page or check your basket.
From time to time the company itself will issues sitewide free shipping if you redeem a special Etsy coupon.
All Etsy sellers are required to accept returns if items were received in a damaged or defective state, or are significantly different than described. If the seller is not responding you can easily open a dispute to rectify the situation. If you wish to return an unopened item because you have changed your mind, the decision will be at the discretion of the seller and they are not obliged to refund you.
