Etsy's global marketplace aims to connect people with their special goods by creating a dynamic community for all. Using their powerful tools and services, the experts of Etsy will be sure to provide both consumers and sellers with a comfortable place to trade, sell or buy products.
Etsy is an American based e-commerce business that focuses on supplying vintage or handmade items and craft supplies. These items lie in a wide category of products such as bags, art, jewellery, home décor, furniture, clothing, toys, and craft supplies.
Etsy also hosts craft fairs in which sellers have the opportunity to showcase their products for a fee of $0.20 per item. They also give sellers the chance to sell vintage items. Goods are only considered vintage if they are 20 years old or more.
As of December 2018, Etsy had above 60 million items on its website. Moreover, the marketplace for vintage goods connected over 2.1 million sellers with more than 39.4 million buyers. At the end of 2018, the number of employees at Etsy reached 874 and Etsy recorded a net income of above $41.25 million.
Etsy is considered to be safe and reliable to most users. Etsy is safe, just do not forget to check the Etsy store policies and Etsy shipping details before ordering.
Etsy is a billion-dollar company and it makes thousands of purchases a day so you can trust Etsy when you are making purchases.
Tracking numbers are provided usually when the seller gives them. If you are a buyer and you want to track your parcel, you can request the seller for the tracking number, although it is optional. If you are the seller, there are two ways how you can get an Etsy tracking number to provide the buyer.
The importance of having a tracking number on your Etsy parcel is so that buyers can also be aware of when their packages are arriving or they can see the status of the packages. Once the customer is satisfied with your service, then it can lead to more sales in the future.
You can always check the shipping details/status of your order on the Etsy app or the Etsy official website. If the seller has given information, then you can easily check where the order has arrived and how much time it will take to reach your location.
To track your Etsy order information, follow the following steps:
You can also track your parcels through Ship24. If the seller has sent your parcels through a third-party courier such as China Post, DHL, or FedEx, you can request the seller for the tracking number. With the tracking number, you can copy and paste it onto the Ship24 homepage and get results on the whereabouts of your parcels. You can track up to 10 parcels at the same and it doesn't have to be the same courier.
Ship24 has multi-courier detection where it doesn't matter what courier your parcel is in, you just need the tracking numbers and Ship24 will do its job for you.
Moreover, you can also check shipping details from shipping-related emails for your order. All you need to do is click on Track Package in the email notification to view the details of your delivery.
Note that not all carriers have Etsy package tracking information available. You can always contact the shop to check if they keep information about your order. If you have some queries about your parcel or if the Etsy parcel tracking information is not present you can always contact the seller of your product for help or you can also contact Etsy customer service.
Below are some of the tracking notifications that you will see when you track your Etsy orders.
|Shipped||This status tells that the seller has marked your order as shipped.|
|Not Shipped||This shows either the seller has not shipped your order or didn’t update order details on Etsy.|
|In Transit||This tells that the seller has provided an Etsy tracking number and the parcel has left the shipping facility.|
Track Package: If the tracking number is provided by the seller you will have an option to track your order. Tap "Track Package" to see more details about your package.
If you have purchased something without an Etsy account, you can still do your Etsy track order. Once your order is placed for shipment you will receive a confirmation email. If your seller has given a tracking number, you can click on it to see your package details.
If you have further queries about your package, contact your seller by replying to them to the receipt, they provided you with an email after purchase.
You can also use a third party such as the Ship24 website. When you will see the Etsy tracking number in the email, just copy-paste it into the search bar on the Ship24 homepage.
The time it takes to ship products from sellers to your destination depends on two things:
Sellers always need time to prepare their products for shipping. This includes proper packing and applying shipping labelling on shipping items. If your products are Handmade, then sellers may need some time to properly customize them.
This may include whether your order has to ship to international borders. Both Etsy shipping time and item processing times can be found by seeing store shipping policies. If a seller does not mention processing time for an item, then it will automatically be set to 5 days.
Shipping to a location of the same country takes 2 days while shipping to different countries takes an average time of 10 days. Then Etsy calculates the total Etsy delivery time by adding an approximate processing time and a maximum shipping time.
Generally, Etsy delivery charges depend on how far the buyer from the seller is as well as the dimensions and weight of the product that you are purchasing.
If you want to find shipping details you can check the product page.
(Note that if you are purchasing from the United States, then you also need to enter your ZIP code to calculate the shipping amount.)
Moreover, you can use a tool called Price Your Postage from which you can estimate how much you will have to pay for shipping.
For finding shipping details select whether you want to ship to a domestic address to an international country. Next, enter your ZIP code of the area and product details like weight and dimensions. Then select Calculate Prices.
Etsy's free shipping also depends on the sellers.
