Etsy Sales Report – June 2023

Each month we will be publishing on the Koalanda blog a brief report on the Etsy sales of the preceding month. Here is the report for June 2023.

Sales on Etsy in comparison with previous months

In June, we observed a considerable decline in the average daily sales on Etsy. This trend persists for the third month in a row, with June experiencing a more significant drop. Following the declines of approximately 4% and 3% in the previous two months, the decrease in June amounts to around 5%. So far, June is the slowest month for Etsy sellers in 2023.

Should we be concerned about these numbers and interpret them as a sign of Etsy losing its appeal among buyers? Absolutely not!

Firstly, it’s important to recognize that the decline is only 5%, which isn’t that significant in the grand scheme of things.

Secondly, if we examine the data from last year, we observe that the sales figures were virtually the same. The graph below clearly illustrates how the sales for the first six months of both 2022 and 2023 closely align, with the curves overlapping throughout the entire period. Therefore, there’s no need to worry—everything is well with Etsy. Fluctuations in sales are a normal occurrence throughout the year, and it’s common for the summer months to be somewhat slower for the platform. However, we all know what lies ahead in November and December.

The largest decline can be seen in the Shoes category, with a significant drop of 11%, followed by Bath & Beauty (9%), Home & Living (8%), and Jewelry (8%). It’s worth noting that sales in the Shoes category typically represent a smaller percentage of the overall platform sales, which is why we often observe the most significant fluctuations there in terms of percentage. On the other hand, sellers in the Toys & Games (3%), Accessories (4%), and Pet Supplies (4%) categories were less impacted by this negative trend.

Now is the perfect time for Etsy sellers to shift their focus towards August – the quintessential summer month, filled with an abundance of vacations and leisure. It may not be the most lucrative period of the year for many sellers. However, it presents a unique opportunity to recharge and rejuvenate before the bustling winter months ahead. It’s also an ideal moment to contemplate ways to enhance your products or elevate your shop’s presence. Whether it’s introducing a new collection, capturing captivating photographs, or refining your keywords, every improvement you make can pave the way for increased sales. Remember, while one month may not be sufficient for all endeavors, each step you take brings you closer to achieving greater success.
