What's it all about?

Etsy is an online Marketplace, peer-to-peer (P2P) e-commerce website that offers products including handmade items, clothing, jewelry, toys and vintage items.


Etsy is popular as a side-gig due to its low costs and high traffic. 

Very simply, all you need to do to get selling it set up a shop on Etsy and start listing your items. Etsy makes money by charging a listing fee of £0.20p for each item and a small commission on sales.
