Etsy’s Revolutionary Share & Save Program

In the dynamic ecosystem of eCommerce, Etsy has carved its unique niche by featuring handmade, vintage items, and craft supplies. The platform combines the enigmatic charm of bespoke goods with the power of online reach, globalizing local artisans and craft enthusiasts. However, like any other platform, Etsy charges a fee to its sellers for its facilitation role. Around 5% of each sale usually goes to Etsy, which can add up substantially for large volume sellers. But, this narrative is about to change with Etsy’s revolutionary Share & Save program.

Etsy has recently launched its innovative Share & Save program, a cashback incentive for sellers who help driving traffic to their Etsy listings. Sellers are given unique, trackable links which they can share outside Etsy. This step marks a rare break from the conventional commercial protocol of eCommerce platforms, where they leverage their audience to generate income for sellers, charging a fee in return.

The Share & Save program constructs a customer journey that starts right from the moment an individual follows the unique link provided by the seller. Once clicked, the link activates a 30-day tracking window. If a purchase is made within these 30-days, the seller earns an instant 4% rebate on the total purchase amount—a smart move by Etsy to reward sellers for their marketing efforts.

Illustratively, if a seller shares their unique link on a social media post and a buyer, following that link, purchases an item worth $100, the seller receives $4 instantly after the sale. This unique program effectively allows sellers to obtain an immediate post-purchase refund, making marketing initiatives more encouraging for them.

However, this enticing program does have certain requisite conditions to secure the 4% rebate. Importantly, the cashback is exclusively applicable to the traffic driven outside of Etsy through the given links. The 30-day validity is another requirement. If a buyer clicks the link and makes a purchase after 31 days, the rebate does not apply. Furthermore, the last click prior to the purchase is significant. If the buyer, after clicking the unique link, navigates away from Etsy and then returns directly without clicking the link again, the sale would not qualify for the rebate. Thus, it’s crucial that sellers use a specified link format to promote their listings.

Etsy’s Share & Save program is undeniably a game-changer. It essentially allows sellers to leverage their marketing prowess to earn remarkable savings. It not only reduces their selling costs but rewards them for driving external traffic to Etsy, which is a significant stride in the contemporary eCommerce landscape.

In conclusion, this initiative from Etsy creates a unique paradigm in eCommerce, affording its sellers amplified control and rewards for well-strategized and effective marketing. Savings have never looked so creatively generous to sellers before, and perhaps more eCommerce platforms will follow in Etsy’s pioneering footsteps. With such seller-friendly innovations, the future of eCommerce indeed looks promising and exciting.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
