Etsy Celebrates Highest Day of Sales in History

Nov 29, 2011

by Chad Dickerson

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

At Etsy, we pride ourselves on being a community driven by interactions among real people. These values are more timely than ever. Our growth rates this year, particularly our record-breaking holiday numbers, confirm that Etsy’s vision of commerce is flourishing. More and more, big-box retail experiences are becoming impersonal, frustrating, and even dangerous — pepper-sprayed while shopping? Many online shopping venues focus purely on price and convenience. Instead, Etsy focuses on one-to-one exchanges. We connect individuals around the world to creative, independent business owners who provide an array of unique, one-of-a-kind goods.

On Monday, November 28, 2011, Etsy sellers sold a record amount of goods, resulting in a single-day sales record for the community. Today, the community is on track to meet that number again, and we expect that more days will top the charts before the end of the year. We’re excited about this growth because it reflects the success of hundreds of thousands of businesses run by real people. In fact, the number of shops with sales on Cyber Monday increased by 61 percent compared to last year, and average sales per shop increased 11 percent.

Reports for the retail industry have indicated that, on average, Cyber Monday sales for 2011 were up anywhere from 15 to 30 percent over last year. For the Etsy marketplace overall, sales increased by more than 80 percent over 2010, and the rate of growth in the past year significantly exceeded the rate from 2009 to 2010.

Additionally, more than 15 million visitors came to the site between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, representing a strong surge in shoppers looking for handmade, personal gifts this holiday season and a vote of confidence for the values that Etsy represents.

More shoppers than ever are using Etsy’s mobile products and the growth in sales driven by mobile has been spectacular. Over Thanksgiving weekend, millions of people visited Etsy shops via mobile devices, almost 350 percent higher than last year’s traffic, and that number continues to climb. We’re thrilled that shoppers and sellers are using mobile devices and new products like our iPhone app to interact and connect, anywhere they are, any time they want to.

This holiday season, at a time when many people are struggling and some are even questioning the very foundations of our economy, Etsy provides an alternate vision of commerce, one where people matter most. Thank you for working with us to make this vision a reality.

Congratulations to the entire Etsy community on your success!

    I'm so glad for everyone. I know my store had crazy number of views and sales over the weekend and other sellers experienced that as well. Congratulations to you! I had lots of fun and it was an intense shopping/selling experience. Hopefully we can all step it up again for next year and keep communicating among each other so that sellers who did not get lots of views/sales can make the changes they need to 'join the party'. As always, the forums were a great source for this type of information. :)

  • sarantos

    sarantos said 7 years ago

    Etsy could be making so much more if they would: 1. Allow a limited account guest checkout. 2. Return the scrolling most recent items to the top of relevancy. 3. Create a user friendly BUY page that is more intuitive to new users. What success we have now is being done despite those obstacles. Try it for ONE month and see. I dare you. :)

  • BloomingTulip

    BloomingTulip said 7 years ago

    I'd be interested to know how those sales were spread out. So many sellers said they had no sales. I wonder if it was fewer sellers who were getting more sales, as opposed to spreading that love around to more sellers with more sales.

    Wonderful news ! I only wish that my sales for the year so far were Not 1/4 of what I earned last year. This year for me has been very sad. Had a few sales this month finally but honestly I am not even near what I made last year at this time.

  • JLynnSupplies

    JLynnSupplies said 7 years ago

    am I the only one to notice that this post gives no real numbers? How many sales took place? What was the value of those sales? This post tells us nothing. How can we compare this year to last when they do not tell us what this year was?

    "More shoppers than ever are using Etsy’s mobile products and the growth in sales driven by mobile has been spectacular. "________if this is true, then ads should transfer to the mobile devices: I paid for a showcase on Friday that ONLY showed up on-line, not on my phone. That should be made clear if you continue to sell ad space: that the ad is limited, and not transferable to the mobile Etsy.

    Wonderful news for those of you who had great sales. The views are up on both of our stores, but only made one sale this month. Maybe this trend will filter to our stores before the holiday season ends. For now, we are celebrating any success our fellow Etsy sellers may have. May we all have empty stores by the end of this year. Suzanne

    Kudos to one and all. Fantastic news. I did a bit of shopping myself right here on etsy this weekend, finding some wonderful items for my family and friends.

  • louise35flower

    louise35flower said 7 years ago

    Great to hear so many people did well, but there are a lot of folks whose sales figures have dropped through the floor since the introduction of shop local, many US customers just aren't seeing what's available internationally unless they are fully aware of how the search function works. Relevancy also has had a detrimental effect on my sales, many top sellers are sadly turning to other selling venues. I love Etsy and am glad to be here but I do worry for the future.

    Congrats to Etsy and all the Etsy sellers! I've noticed a big shift from last year...last year Black Friday through Cyber Monday was my busiest weekend on Etsy with Black Friday being my busiest day. This year so far it was also my busiest weekend but Cyber Monday was my busiest day. I think overall Cyber Monday is becoming the new Black Friday.

  • VeronicaRStudio

    VeronicaRStudio said 7 years ago

    This is great news! I'm glad to see record breaking sales across the site, however, I would like to know more about this 11% increase for individual shops... Who is getting those increased sales? I'm not... My November was about 50% less sales than last year, and I know a lot of sellers are down in sales as well. Anyway, this is still great news and I hope Etsy keeps growing... A guest checkout would be an amazing improvement to the site and would increase sales even further... Please?

    babyjewlz said 7 years ago

  • vinieschild

    vinieschild said 7 years ago

    I'm happy for those who are having success. For the number of listings I can be happy with my one sale which came on Tuesday so probably didn't have much to do with the big promo's. It does bother me significantly to read this: "more than 15 million visitors came to the site between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, representing a strong surge in shoppers looking for handmade, personal gifts this holiday season and a vote of confidence for the values that Etsy represents." 15 million is incredible. The fact that in Chad's mind it is based on handmade with no mention of vintage is not. Ouch!!

    This is definitely great news! However, once again, I notice that the thanks is to the handmade community: Additionally, more than 15 million visitors came to the site between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, representing a strong surge in shoppers looking for handmade, personal gifts this holiday season and a vote of confidence for the values that Etsy represents. Is this because all of the sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday were for handmade goods? Just wondering why vintage isn't mentioned regarding sales and growth. Thanks Etsy!

I'll be closing my Etsy shop at the end of this month and moving to another venue. I'm happy that I was able to build my business up to a level where I can take it elsewhere. I am really happy to hear that so many people are successful here though! That really is Fantastic!!

  • ModernEraDesign

    ModernEraDesign said 7 years ago

    This is good news for Etsy. My shop has done pretty well, but I am noticing a very different tone from brand new buyers who haven't purchased handmade goods or done business before on Etsy. Sellers should be aware that many internet shoppers are unused to the turnaround involved in hand crafted goods, and since so many are purchasing on their mobile devices, they don't see the entire text of listings. These newcomers' expectations are typical of department store buyers, so keep in mind that they might become irritated with and abusive to sellers in a similar way they might treat retail clerks. Most buyers are lovely, but all it takes is one or two to spoil your pleasure in making handmade goods.

  • ModernEraDesign

    ModernEraDesign said 7 years ago

    I'll add that I've changed my thank-you "message to buyers" to include the turnaround time. The buyer still won't read that, but it is good protection if they decide to berate or badger you.

  • mybeardedpigeon

    mybeardedpigeon said 7 years ago

    i don't know why everyone is complaining about shop local. I am in Australia and most of my sales are from US so shop local is clearly not having an impact for me. My sales have been huge. Although last month- maybe because I am in Australia and people wanted Christmas presents -was my biggest month ever-! Thanks Etsy!

    Sounds so exciting I too want to grow my shop and business on Etsy. How can I find on line or local workshop to do so. I know I have the potential , just need to learn more from those who have built their success at Etsy shops.

  • MulberryCreek

    MulberryCreek said 7 years ago

    This is great news! I think it proves that people are looking for a real experience in shopping and customer service instead of the big box experience and are even willing to pay a little more for that. And most who shop here are looking for handmade, unique, and maybe even something custom just for them. This has been my first holiday season here and I have been very happy...but am hoping to do even better next year. But I realize that depends mostly on me...what I offer in my shop and the customer service I provide. Etsy provides the tools for me to promote and make that happen....thanks Etsy.....

    This is great news - congrats to the Etsy team first because they make it happen... I am very happy to see this level of interest ("15 million visitors came to the site between Black Friday and Cyber Monday!!") but am not surprised - there is an incredible number of talented people around us.

  • ABridesEyeView

    ABridesEyeView said 7 years ago

    Etsy ROCKS! I saw a few people with sad issues and I say to them, "put on your big boy/girl pants and get going!" It is never too late to start, it is never too soon to do new things, failure is never final, - - - I could go on, but you get the idea. If I had the time, I would create a blog on innovative ways to get better results but, alas, I am so busy with my store that I don't have time for writing as much as I want to do. If anyone asks me for advise, I - like so many other caring Etsy members - give it willingly and with joy. Seize the day - EVERYDAY! Pat

    WOODYWOODY said 7 years ago

    I am so glad that sales were up, but alas I have only three sales so far ( I have been on Etsy a long time ), two to my Son ans one to Australia recently. Could somebody do me the honour of looking at my shop and give me some critique on what is wrong with it. I need/want to stay with Etsy, but at the moment I can not see the point. Sorry for the downer. Leo
