Etsy (Canada) Affiliate Program

Welcome to the Etsy Canada Affiliate Program!

Join Etsy’s affiliate program and earn commission for sharing one-of-a-kind items from our global marketplace.

Who we are:

Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect to buy and sell handmade and vintage goods. Etsy offers a meaningful and personal shopping experience to consumers and gives independent, creative businesses around the world the tools to be successful. Our mission is to reimagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world.

Who is eligible for Etsy’s Affiliate Program?

Etsy offers a unique array of products that appeal to a wide range of audience. All affiliates are welcome to apply, however certain profiles are not eligible for the program at this time, including cashback and voucher code sites.

Please note that we also have US, UK, French, German, Scandinavian (Sweden) and Australian 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.

Please find a link to the survey here: https://forms.office.com/r/XQFqruFHZm

Completing the survey will allow you to:

  • Remain joined to the Etsy Affiliate program
  • Potentially be included in special partnership opportunities  

Please kindly only complete the survey once.

Etsy Sellers:

Etsy sellers are eligible for the Affiliate Program 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. We are, however, testing with a small group of sellers on TikTok, to allow a seller to earn commission on their own shop if they use TikTok. If you have a TikTok, please disclose it as your promotional URL to be a part of this test group. For any Etsy seller, our affiliate program offers 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 Affiliate Program as an Etsy Seller, 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 find a link to the survey here: https://forms.office.com/r/XQFqruFHZm

Can I share my links on social media?

Affiliates may only post affiliate links on social media feeds they operate such as Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Affiliate links are prohibited on some social sharing sites such Tumblr. Please note Etsy T&C's state that you cannot have Pinterest as your primary promotional method to promote Etsy and Affiliate links are only permitted to be used on Pinterest if you are linking to your own content (i.e. a pin to your blog, where the affiliate link lives in your blog). The only affiliate links that CAN live on Pinterest are links in Idea Pins, where you are creating video content, not simply pinning a product.

When posting content outside of Etsy, it is the Affiliate’s responsibility to follow each site’s policies on affiliate links.

If you are posting Etsy Affiliate Links on your Social Media, please make sure to declare these on the Etsy Affiliate Survey. Please find a link to the survey here: https://forms.office.com/r/XQFqruFHZm
