Supported Accounts and Regions

Commerce supports all Etsy regions and seller accounts.

Historical Data

When you connect an account Commerce automatically fetches a few transactions prior to the connection date, and then all transactions going forward. It is possible to import additional historical data, referred to as a Catch Me Up (CMU). In most cases, Commerce will be able to fetch multiple years of Etsy data without issue.

Users on paid Growth or higher plans are provided with a 90-day Catch Me Up as part of their subscription.

Tax Treatment

How Commerce gets Tax data from Etsy depends on the region of the connected account.

United States

Etsy collects and remits taxes on behalf of the seller. These taxes come through to Commerce with your Sales Data as Automatic Sales Tax.

Canadian tax regulation requires sellers to register for a GST/HST ID and to collect and remit the tax to the CRA once they’ve reached $30,000 CAD in sales.

As of July 1st 2022, Etsy collects and remits GST and Provincial taxes on behalf of the seller. These taxes come through to Commerce with your Sales Data as Automatic Sales Tax.

European Union and U.K.

If you are a VAT registered seller, you may be required to collect VAT on your Etsy sales. Etsy does not include VAT automatically, so sellers may need to list products as VAT inclusive. Etsy provides no tax data for VAT inclusive transactions, so Commerce is unable to pull any through with your sales data.

However, Commerce has the ability to apply a VAT rate to your data through custom rules we refer to as transforms. This will capture the correct VAT rate, and allow your data to be accurate when exporting to your accounting system. Transforms must be applied by our support team, so please contact if required.

Learn more about transforms here

Other Regions

Etsy may have additional region-specific treatment of tax. For more information, consult their tax center here.


If you have SKU's listed with your products in Etsy, Commerce is able to pull them through with your sales data. If you have inventory enabled in your accounting system, Commerce's SKU matching allows you to accurately map transactions to the product or service sold.


Etsy allows the use of many third party payment providers. It's strongly recommended that you use a separate clearing account for each payment provider in use.

This integration supports multi-currency without any restrictions.
