Etsy Statistics: May Flowers Indeed!

Jun 2, 2008

by winenutnyc handmade and vintage goods

Thanks to all of the terrific members of the Etsy community who made May 2008 another record month with all-time highs in both amount of goods sold, new listings and page views.   

The numbers for May:
•    $6.5 million sold here on Etsy last month —  8.3% more than April.
•    449,000 items were sold to make up that sales figure.  
•    A tiny bit over 730,000 new items were listed.
•    65,200 new buyers and 14,400 new sellers joined the community.

We were very close to 300,000,000 page views for the month (we came in at 298,000,000) and we had our highest traffic day ever: 10,500,000 this past Wednesday, May 28th.    

Keep up the good work and I’ll be back with an update next month!

    It would be very nice if Etsy shared more of its stats with its sellers -- at the moment all we have is our buggy view counters :(
