How to Renew an Etsy Listing

There may come a time when you want to renew an Etsy listing. For example, you may renew a listing if it has expired, or if the item has sold and you want to restock your shop by offering a new, identical item.

You can also renew an active listing. When you do, the listing gets a new listing date and a new expiration date (four months from the date of renewal). A renewal can breathe new life into the listing, placing it closer to the top of item searches and briefly in the Recently Listed Items section.

When you renew a listing, even an active listing, you’re assessed a 20¢listing fee, regardless of the quantity entered.

How to renew a sold listing

To restock your shop by renewing a listing for a sold item, log in to your Etsy account and follow these steps:

  1. Hover your mouse pointer over the Your Shop link along the top of any Etsy page.

    A list of options appears.

  2. Click the Sold Orders link.

    The Open Orders page opens.

  3. If the listing you want to renew appears in the Open Orders page, click it; if not, click the All tab and click the listing there.

    A page for the listing opens.

  4. Click the Renew Sold link.

    A preview of the listing appears.

  5. Click the Renew button to renew your listing.

    Etsy posts a new listing.

An even faster way to renew the listing is to click the little gear icon to the right of the listing in the Open Orders or All tab and choose Renew from the menu that appears.

How to renew an active listing

Here’s how you renew an active listing while you’re logged in to your Etsy account (it’s a cinch!):

  1. Hover your mouse pointer over the Your Shop link along the top of any Etsy page.

    A list of options appears.

  2. Click the Listings link.

    The Currently for Sale page opens.

  3. Click the check box next to the listing you want to renew.

    To renew more than one active item at a time, click the check box next to each active listing that you want to renew. To select all your listings, click the check box just above or below the list. This same trick applies when you renew expired listings.

  4. Click the Renew button (there’s one at the top of the list of active listings and another one at the bottom of the list).

    Etsy prompts you to confirm the renewal.

  5. Click Renew again.

    Etsy renews the listing.

You can also renew an active item from within your Etsy shop. To do so, log in to your account, click the link to your shop in the Etsy header bar, open the listing that you want to renew, and click the Renew link in the Listing Tools toolbar along the top of the listing. When prompted to confirm the renewal, click the Renew button.

How to renew an expired listing

Renewing an expired listing is a lot like renewing an active listing:

  1. Hover your mouse pointer over the Your Shop link along the top of any Etsy page and click the Listings link.

    The Currently for Sale page opens.

  2. Click the Expired tab.

    The Expired Listings page opens. This page looks a lot like the Currently for Sale page.

  3. Click the check box next to the expired listing you want to renew.

  4. Click the Renew button (there’s one at the top of the list of expired listings and another one at the bottom of the list).

    Etsy prompts you to confirm the renewal.

  5. Click Renew again.

    Etsy renews the listing and directs you to the Expired tab.
