Etsy Contests and Giveaways


Etsy is the extremely popular marketplace for all things crafts and vintage. You can find everything from handcrafted furniture and jewelry and craft supplies to vintage clothing and collectibles. Because of its popularity, giveaways are used to promote sellers' work and contests help encourage sellers to create.

For Buyers

One way to find Etsy giveaways is to follow your favorite sellers online at their social media networks, i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. Also follow their crafting blogs. Sellers may give away single products or groups of them or even gift certificates. The requirements to enter will usually be quite simple such as making a comment on a blog post or sharing a post from their social media account with your followers.

Some sellers will have giveaways of products for every customer of a certain number increment (25th, 50th, 75th and so on). There may or may not be a minimum purchase requirement. Type in the word giveaway or giveaways in the Etsy site's search box to see the latest opportunities to win. Be sure to follow the Etsy blog for possible mentions of giveaways and links to the site's social media outlets.

For Sellers

Sellers on Etsy engage in crafting contests which you can find in the community teams section. Teams have also been created for sellers to promote their shop contests and giveaways.

If you're an Etsy seller who wants to run a contest, remember to check local laws for running one, as well as the Etsy terms of service. This may be very simple or very complex depending on where you live and there may be differences depending on the language you use, i.e. giveaway versus contest.

When you're sure about the legality of your contest, one way to run it is to offer a drawing for free products or a gift certificate to your shop on your social media accounts. Remember that a specific shop gift certificate is not the same as an Etsy gift card, which is applicable to the entire site. According to the Etsy help page regarding shop-specific gift certificates (https://www.etsy.com/help/article/4532#certificates), you need to ensure that winners understand the difference.

Happy crafting and good luck!
