What is Etsy?

Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. It’s home to a universe of special, extraordinary items, from unique handcrafted pieces to vintage treasures.

How Much Does It Cost to List an Item on Etsy

The listing fee for an item on Etsy is US$0.2. So getting 40 free listings means that you save US$8.

You can use the free listings to list new items in your shop or to renew items that you have listed or sold before.

How to Get 40 Free Listings for Your New Etsy Shop

Click this link to get your 40 free listings on Etsy

Make sure you open the shop directly from the link. If you leave the link or change browsers, the referral may not work and you may lose the free listings.

After clicking the link, you can follow the steps to sign up and open your shop. (By using this referral link, I will also get a small reward and get 40 free listings for my Etsy shop. Thank you!)

How to Check That the Free Listings Are in Your Etsy Account

To check if you have the free listings, first go to your Etsy dashboard/shop manager. Then click Listings in the menu. Your 40 free listings will show up at the top right corner of your listing page.

Will the Free Etsy Listings Expire

The good news is that the free listings do not expire. So you can take your time when setting up the shop. And you do not have to use all of them at once.

Once you have used a free listing (either to list a new item or to renew a sold item), it will:

Be used when the item is sold, or
Expire after 4 months if the item is not sold

Also, keep in mind that if your account is closed, you will lose the free listings.
