One of the really cool things about Etsy is that you get the chance to shop from sellers all around the world. But one of the downsides is that usually means dealing with some pretty outrageous shipping charges.
If you want to avoid those fees, though, check this out! Last year, Etsy launched their Free Shipping Event, where they gathered up a bunch of products you could get shipped to or within Canada for FREE and listed them all together on one page. That page is still active on their site, so you can get shopping!
However, these are far from the only products you can have delivered for free on Etsy. The next time you're shopping on Etsy, search for something specific or shop within a certain category. When you do, check the box for Free Delivery" in the column on the lefthand side of your browser to see all related products that qualify for free shipping. The occasional seller will also offer free shipping with a minimum spend or when you purchase a specific number of items. Just keep in mind that you may still have to pay duties and other charges.
Does Etsy ship to Canada?
The short answer is yes. However, since Etsy is made up of individual sellers located all around the world, they can set their own shipping restrictions. Most sellers I've encountered do ship to Canada and have rates that range from free delivery to hundreds of dollars (which might get pretty hefty). I've seen the occasional Etsy seller that doesn't offer shipping to Canada – but in most cases, that isn't a problem.
How do I estimate shipping costs for Etsy?
Shipping costs vary, but most sellers will set delivery prices for their individual products based on the size, weight and shape of each item, as well as your delivery location. To see estimated shipping costs for a specific product, scroll down on the item page. You should see delivery info located in the bottom of the righthand column. This is also where you'll see if the seller doesn't offer shipping to Canada.
