How to Join an Etsy Team
Some Etsy teams are open to any and all Etsy members. Others are moderated, meaning that they limit their membership based on certain criteria. To join a team that's open to all, simply click the Join This Team button that appears in the top-left corner of the team's page. Then, when prompted, click Join This Team again. A welcome message appears at the top of the team page, and your avatar appears in the list of team members. The team that you joined also appears at the top of your main Teams page.
Joining a team that restricts membership is a bit more involved. Instead of simply clicking a button, you must apply for membership, which sometimes means jumping through a few hoops:
Click the Apply to Team button in the top-left corner of the team's page.
An Apply to Team window appears.
Read the information in the Apply to Team window and answer any questions in the field at the bottom.
The team leaders use your answers to decide whether you qualify to be a team member.
Click the Apply to Team button to apply.
Assuming that you meet the membership criteria, as determined by the team captain and laid out in the team charter, you'll likely be accepted — although the team leadership may deny membership at its discretion. Either way, after the team makes a decision, it'll notify you via e-mail.
