Who is eligible for Etsy’s Affiliate Program?
Etsy sellers are eligible for the Affiliates Programme but are not eligible to earn commission on sales from their own shops or from closely related shops. Closely related shops are shops in which an Etsy seller has a financial interest or that have a material connection, such as a shared bank account or credit card, with the seller's own shop. This is a wonderful opportunity to earn commission from showcasing other Etsy shops and embracing and discussing the Etsy community at large.
To be eligible for our Affiliates Program, you must:
Declare the names of any Etsy shops you own or are closely related to (if applicable) to Etsy’s Affiliate team via the Etsy Affiliate Survey
Please note that we also have UK, French, German, Scandinavian, Canadian, and US affiliate programs. Affiliates should only apply to their specific country program. Commissions will be rewarded no matter what country the sale was made in. There is also an 'EU' and 'Rest of World' account, available to those with no country specific program to join.
Etsy Affiliate Partner Survey:
Once your application to join the Etsy program has been approved, we kindly request that you complete the mandatory Etsy Affiliate Survey. The time to complete this is 7-8 minutes.
Potentially be included in special partnership opportunities
Please kindly only complete the survey once.
Can I share my links on social media?
Affiliates may only post affiliate links on social media feeds they operate in line with their website URL, such as Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Affiliate links are prohibited on some social sharing sites, such as Pinterest and Tumblr. When posting content outside of Etsy, it is the Affiliate’s responsibility to follow each site’s policies on affiliate links.
