Etsy has sellers from 234 countries, most of them being based in the United States. With so many users on the platform, it is easy to question what motivates Etsy sellers to run their shops. In the latest recorded year, 71 percent of Etsy sellers reported that they considered their Etsy shop as a business. Another 82 percent of Etsy sellers aspired to increase their sales in the future. From the seller’s side of things, Etsy is also a woman-dominated platform, with the majority of Etsy sellers identifying as women as of 2021.
