We’re always looking for ways to make running your Etsy shop easier so you can spend more time doing what you love – creating. Our seller survey report told us that about six per cent of Australian Etsy sellers’ time is spent on postage and processing returns, so we know that shipping is a big part of running an Etsy shop. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Sendle to give local Etsy sellers access to a very special shipping offer.

Sendle is an Australian company that offers a carbon neutral door-to-door delivery service, to help make the shipping process easier and cheaper for you and your buyers.
From today, Australian Etsy sellers can sign up for a free Premium account with Sendle valued at $120 per year. This gives you access to affordable flat-rate shipping to most places in Australia. On top of that, for 12 months from signing up, you’ll get $1 off every single parcel you send, so for example it will only cost you $9.75 between cities for parcels up to 2kg picked up from your home!
When you ship with Sendle, your packages are picked up right from your door and delivered to your buyers all around Australia. Sendle’s online dashboard lets you book in seconds and manage your deliveries alongside your Etsy shop as well as granting you easy access to advice and support. Sendle is also Australia’s first carbon neutral delivery service, making shipping easier and greener.
Melbourne maker Maree Petrousis from Amelayna Designs says that using Sendle’s service and support helps her run her home-based homewares business:
“Running a business with two small children means that every moment of my day counts. It’s always a balancing act between spending time in my studio, responding to my amazing customers and being a full-time mum. Sendle is so convenient and saves me so much time. Booking deliveries takes seconds and because they come and collect from my doorstep, I don’t need to step outside to delight my customers.
It’s kind of revolutionary for a delivery company to care but I feel that the Sendle team actually knows and cares about my business—it’s personal and I love that.”
