    Personally I would leave offsite ads on as unless your profit margins are so small it should always bring you profit. Obviously then it comes down to if it is enough to warrant your time. But you have a new customer who will hopefully return.

    The Etsy ads need to be managed as they can quite easily run up a bill.

    Etsy switched on the charges for the offsite ads on May 4th - my bill has gone up a lot too. If your shop has EVER taken more than $10,000 or around £8500 over the course of a year, the offsite ads are compulsory and can't be switched off.

    Agree that the Etsy bill / statement is extremely confusing. I worked out that one of my sales (£61) turned into £45 once all the Etsy fees had been taken. That's around 27% fees. If you can't afford to take that out of your profit (on some or all of your sales) you need to increase your prices. Otherwise, obv, you will be running at a loss.

    I'm trying to work out how close I can sail to the wind with directing traffic away from Etsy, as frankly I think they are taking the p*ss.

    I'm hoping Facebook's new shopping channel thingummy will take the wind out of their sails.

    If anyone wants it I have an excel spreadsheet that works out the fees and give you how much profit you get after them
