Etsy Updates Advertising Offerings

BROOKLYN, N.Y., Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Etsy, Inc. (Nasdaq: ETSY), which operates two-sided online marketplaces that connect millions of passionate and creative buyers and sellers around the world, announced today that it is evolving its advertising offering to help sellers more effectively drive traffic to their listings.

Etsy is introducing a new advertising service, called Offsite Ads. Etsy will pay the upfront costs to promote sellers' listings on multiple internet platforms without any upfront costs for sellers. When a shopper clicks on an online offsite ad featuring a seller's listing and purchases from their shop, the seller will pay Etsy an advertising fee on that order - only when they make a sale.  The Etsy Ads service will now be a dedicated on-site advertising program for sellers to promote their listings to shoppers on Etsy.
