Frankly, we were a little worried about April’s numbers at the start of the month: Easter, a big shopping holiday, was in March this year, and April has one less day than March.
Overall, our fears were unfounded — while our growth wasn’t quite as robust as March, we did hit some terrific milestones.
- 295,797,972 pageviews, up 4% compared to March.
- There were 710,000 new items listed, up 1%.
- 427,000 items sold, up 6% from March’s number.
- We added over 65,000 new buyers, essentially flat vs. March, but an impressive number, nonetheless.
The milestones? We sold over $6 million for the first time ever, an 8% increase over March! Also, April 30th was Etsy’s biggest day ever, with 16,580 items sold, representing $256,000. Thanks, CNN!
