What are Etsy offsite ads:
Etsy Offsite Ads is an advertising program that allows Etsy sellers to promote their products on external websites and platforms, such as Google, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
You don’t need to do anything to be eligible for Etsy’s Offsite Ads. Etsy works with partner sites and networks to promote your listings on their pages. We send them all listing inventory information on Etsy, including the listings’ descriptions, photos, titles, and more. The site’s advertising algorithm uses those details to match a user's search or profile info to your listing ad. They make sure to show the most relevant items for every user profile and/or search query.
The offsite advertising fee depends on the revenue you’ve made on Etsy in the past 365 days:
- If your Etsy shop made less than $10,000 USD, you’ll be charged a 15% fee for an order attributed to an Offsite Ad on the amount you made from your sale before the advertising fee was applied.
- If your Etsy shop made at least $10,000 USD, you’ll get a discounted fee of 12%.
