This article will give you a simple guideline on how to set up an Etsy shop. Imagine having an opportunity to quit the average ‘9-5’ grind by making products you love and selling them on Etsy. 

If you’re an artist or crafter then setting up an Etsy account is ideal for you to start selling what you love to do!

It is quite easy, and you are at the perfect place to find out all about opening your Etsy Shop. Here we go!

Why Sell On Etsy

Etsy is an online marketplace for handmade items, vintage goods, and craft supplies. Selling on Etsy will get you more exposure than you would on your own website (at least in the beginning when you yet don’t have an audience). 

Etsy already has a large, built-in audience which is why many sellers start their business here. 

How To Set Up An Etsy Account (Step-by-Step)

It’s super easy to set up an Etsy shop. You don’t need to have a techie bone in your body to get it up and running. The first thing you want to do is use my referral link to grab Etsy 40 FREE listings by clicking here​

Create An Etsy Shop

Click on the referral link to grab the Etsy 40 free listings, then click on “open a shop today.”


Go ahead and enter your “email address” and click on “continue.”

The next step to make an Etsy account is to enter your “first name” and “password” and then click on “register.”

It’s time to select your shop preference which includes language, the country you reside, and currency. 

Choosing Your Etsy Shop Name

Your shop’s name also depicts the style of your shop. Choose a name that is memorable and make sure that there is no other shop of the same name. Choose a stylish and catchy name.


It’s time to list your first Etsy listing. You can add as many listings as you can. Ten or more would be a great start. More listings mean more chances to be discovered!


The next step is choosing how you’ll get paid and complete the billing. 


Congratulations your Etsy shop is OPEN!💥

While opening your Etsy shop is a significant accomplishment, what you do next is just as important. You’re in business whether you’ve had a sale yet or not, so build on your momentum by making an action plan to help your new shop thrive.
