Etsy is a rage nowadays with 2.1 million+ merchants already selling on the marketplace.

Starters use the Etsy seller panel to list their products and manage inventory. However, it’s the professionals who are well-versed on Etsy as well as other marketplaces are the ones who need to automate their operations.

The reasons are plain and simple. You have thousands of SKUs, and managing and handling them manually is the toughest nut to crack. It is an international marketplace where merchants don’t require separate permission to sell in different countries.

Etsy Shipping Profiles

One of the essential parts of onboarding on Etsy is – defining shipping profiles. Etsy Shipping profiles allow merchants to apply the same shipping cost to multiple listings, which are from the same category.

The downside is if you don’t assign a shipping profile on Etsy, the listings won’t go live on Etsy. However, it’s not a big deal. The shipping profile is termed as Shipping Template.

Etsy Shipping profiles/template is nothing else but defining different shipping methods/modes – Free, Freight, Standard, Zone Skipping, and Expedited and more. However, the combination differs from products and their destination.
