Simplify your Etsy fulfilment operations and grow your business with Huboo.
Etsy is an online marketplace that provides a platform for independent sellers to sell handmade, vintage, and unique goods. The platform has a strong focus on community, creativity, and sustainability. Etsy offers sellers tools to manage their online shops, market their products, and process payments.
Buyers can browse and purchase a wide range of products, including handmade crafts, vintage items, and artisanal goods, directly from independent sellers. Etsy aims to create a marketplace that fosters creativity, empowers small businesses, and offers a unique and personalized shopping experience for buyers.
UK Sellers can set their own shipping policies and prices within the platform and have the option purchase shipping labels from either Royal Mail or Evri directly from their etsy account. Shipping weights, sizes and locations have to be provided by the seller, and any tracking information uploaded to the platform to mark orders as dispatched.
Etsy doesn’t have a fulfilment centre to help sellers store and pick their products so in order to outsource this post purchase process, sellers will have to use a third party logistics provider.
After all the work you put into getting an order, the last thing you need it for the wrong items to be shipped. Huboo has a verified 99.9% picking accuracy rate, powered by our dedicated warehouse teams and the custom-built technology that goes into our perfect picking devices.

No, Etsy currently doesn’t have a fulfilment centre of their own or offer fulfilment services for its sellers. Etsy sellers looking to avoid storing, picking and packing the orders themselves should look to a 3pl fulfilment partner with an Etsy integration and low minimum order volumes such as Huboo.
Sellers can set their own shipping costs on Etsy. They can choose to pass on all, some or none of the costs of shipping the goods to the buyer. By offering free shipping, sellers are choosing to absorb the cost of shipping the goods, including the cost of the packaging, labour and shipping itself. Sellers offering free shipping often find an increase in orders.
Etsy sellers looking to reduce their fulfilment costs should consider savings they can make to their packaging as well as shipping label costs. Reducing the size of the parcel can reduce both and be an easy switch for items that are not fragile. This can even be as simple as adding an additional box size to your packaging to allow you to ship multi-item orders in the smallest package size, using alternative protective packing to allow less material to be used on fragile items, or just ordering custom box sizes that actually fit your product and allow your orders to be packed with no stuffing at all.
