Do you find yourself saying, “You should open an Etsy shop!” to people in your community? Do you want to be an advocate for these budding Etsy entrepreneurs?

We’re organizing a community of Etsy Ambassadors around the world to help new sellers build successful Etsy businesses.  We invite you to join our global movement!

As an Etsy Ambassador, you’ll:

  • Empower creative entrepreneurs in your community to open Etsy shops.
  • Earn 40 free listings for every new Etsy shop you help open.
  • Receive a toolkit of materials to help you.
  • Be eligible to be featured in Etsy blog posts and newsletters that highlight the efforts of our Ambassadors. Our first Ambassador article comes out this holiday season, so we encourage you to join now.

Join our Etsy Ambassador Program today.

    Great idea! But to encourage sellers from CIS countries (etc Russia, Ukraine, Belorussia, Kazakhstan... and so on) just telling about Etsy is 15% effective. Because many of sellers won't be able to sell. You need to built in local payment methods as well. Because it is very complicated to do business with paypall which is not working at this countries as receiver but only as payment method. And customers from US feel unsafe very often when you ask them to send money on private account for example.
