Opening an Etsy shop to sell your handmade crafts for money can be very exciting, but there's a lot you should know before starting a small online business... From business structure, tax implications, legal issues, intellectual property (copyright & trademark), to understanding Etsy policies & fees - there's so much to know and it can be confusing. As an Etsy seller myself, I wanted to offer general recommendations to others on aspects I feel are important to have a grasp on when you're getting started. Plus, we're going over the official Etsy Seller Handbook to answer common questions.
