About Etsy

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.

At the end of 2018, the number of employees at Etsy reached 874 and Etsy recorded a net income of above $41.25 million.

Does Etsy shipping have tracking?

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 you can get an Etsy tracking number to provide the buyer.

Ways to Get an Etsy Shipping Tracking Number

  1. You can buy a shipping label from Etsy itself. Upon purchasing a shipping label on Etsy, a tracking number automatically comes with it and the shipping is completed when the courier has successfully scanned the parcel when it arrives.
  2. You will get a tracking number when you send it through a third-party logistics delivery company. Companies such as FedEx, China Post, UPS, etc., give you a tracking number when you send parcels. You can send the buyer the tracking number or you can include it on the order through the website or app.

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.

Etsy Shipping Time

The time it takes to ship products from sellers to your destination depends on two things:

  • Firstly, it depends on how long it takes for Etsy sellers to process your products.

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.

  • Secondly, it depends on the Etsy delivery options you choose.

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.
