We are a global community of creative micro-entrepreneurs, advocating for policy reforms that make it easier to start and grow our businesses.
There are over 1.9 million Etsy sellers around the world, who collectively sold $3.25B in goods in 2017 alone. Individually, our businesses may be small, but together we represent significant economic impact and opportunity. Yet, policymakers often overlook the Etsy community when considering new laws, and fail to understand the common challenges we face - from managing complicated tax laws to the pains of international shipping. Governments can help reduce those barriers, but we need to educate them about our unique experiences and needs. By coming together and advocating for ourselves, we can make the Etsy Economy a reality, enabling creative entrepreneurs around the world to thrive.
