March Numbers: No Foolin’

Apr 2, 2008

by winenutnyc handmade and vintage goods

As tempted as I was to post this yesterday and throw some April Fool’s numbers into this article, March’s numbers were just too good to mess with.  You better believe it!

All of the numbers below are the highest Etsy has ever achieved, even more than this past December 2007! 

We sold a hair over 400,000 items representing $5.6 million.  There were just over 700,000 new items listed. 

We added over 66,000 new registered buyers to the site and they contributed to the incredible number of page views in March: 285 million.  

Wow, what a month — no foolin’!  

Thanks to everyone for such a great month! You can also look at the February Stats and read more statistics-related articles by searching the Storque for the tag "statistics."

    Hi PoPko! Yes, Charles aka winenutnyc is an admin. However, he doesn't have it in his profile, which will be rectified asap. He's written many things for The Storque and often does the "Web-ber Report" for the newscast.

    That's great! I noticed the Etsy logo on more Dutch websites lately, I was wondering if the international buyers are catching up more ...? Or was this the "Martha" effect?

  • operatic

    operatic said 13 years ago

    Congratuations! I, too, would like more information about the ratio of buyers to sellers. Or even information about how many new buyer only accounts opened vs. how many seller accounts. Relisting information would be helpful too -- how much relisting is going on.

    That sounds like very good news...I hope it trickles down to benefit everyone!

  • ScottBulgerPhoto

    Three sales numbers would be helpful... Vintage, supplies, everything else.

    I'm sure some of that Martha magic was rubbing off. Next up, how about a little Oprah? What recession?

    I had certainly noticed an increase in sales in my shop since that show aired. It was a great month for me considering what I sell :) WAY TO GO ETSY & MARTHA!!!

    This is great: "approaching 1 million total users"=MORE promotions=More buyers! Congratulations Etsy! :)

    Wonderful news! I'd like to see separate numbers for handmade, vintage, and supplies.

  • FeralGlass

    FeralGlass said 13 years ago

    That is a lot of new buyers. Wonder why we were not given the number of new sellers, too. If there were twice as many new sellers as buyers, it would paint a different picture. I would also like to see the different main categories separated: hand-made, "vintage" and " supplies".

    I think we should be allowed to have as many section as we want?? I know I need more then 10 and I am certain people that sell over 150 things would agree with me?? Thank you for allowing me to post
