If you don’t find an Etsy team that meets your needs, you can start one of your own. For example, you may want to start a team for other Etsy members who share your passion for your medium, who live in your geographic area, who are devoted to a particular style of design, who share similar goals with their Etsy shops, or what have you.


Note that when you create a team, you automatically become its captain, so administrative duties fall to you (unless you delegate them to other members).


To create a team, click the Create a Team button in the top-right corner of the main Etsy Teams page. Etsy prompts you to enter the team details.


  • The name and team type

  • A short description and (optionally) a long description

  • Rules about team access and (optionally) who can join

  • Application questions (if needed)

  • The team’s logo

  • Tags to describe your shop

  • Related links (for example, you may include a link to your own personal website or to some other relevant page online)

After you fill in the requested information, click Create Team.
