More than 15,000 Etsy sellers are going on strike today. The online marketplace, known for selling handmade and designer items, announced they would be increasing transaction fees from 5% to 6.5% starting today, April 11th, meaning ETSY will start taking a bigger cut from sellers. The official #EtsyStrike and it’s supporters on Etsystrike.org demands include: Cancel the fee increase.Crack down on resellers with a comprehensive plan that is transparent, so sellers can hold Etsy accountable.Give ‘Golden’ support tickets to sellers affected by extreme AI actions (account termination, 45/90 day holds, etc.)End the Star Seller Program.Give all sellers the ability to opt out of off site ads. The company had stated in a press release that the increased transaction fee will allow ETSY to provide better customer service and advancement of the platform, but sellers aren’t buying it.
