Etsy Statistics: June 2011 Weather Report

Jul 12, 2011

by sinoheterrero handmade and vintage goods

June marks the official start of summer, a time when we can finally indulge in our favorite outdoor activities: long bike rides, impromptu picnics, and weekend trips to the beach. In Brooklyn, it also means the weather is completely unpredictable — don’t leave home without your umbrella, folks — but here at Etsy things are only looking bright. As you check out the numbers, bear in mind that June was one day shorter than May, 2011.

  • $38.4 million of goods were sold by our community in June, 4.0% lower than May’s $40.0 million.
  • That represents 1,913,151 items sold for the month, 4.7% lower than May’s 2,006,810.
  • 1,791,604 new items were listed in the month, 0.2% higher than May’s 1,788,017.
  • 390,547 new members joined the Etsy community in the month, down 2,348, or 0.6%, from May.
  • 988,956,704 page views were recorded on the site in June.

The $38.4 million of goods sold by the community represents a 74% increase from June 2010’s total. At the same time, items sold were up 58%.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Etsy community in June!

    So... thats 40 million / 2 million products = average of 20 USD per sold item. Right? That makes 2 million x 0.20 = USD 400.000 insertion fee + 20 USD x 3.5% = 0.7 USD fee per sold item = 2 million x 0.7 + 400.000 = $1.8 million turnover for Etsy. Roughly per month. THATS impressive :-)
