In Pakistan, opening an Etsy seller account is more difficult than opening an Amazon account. Pakistan was put to the list of Etsy sellers, but sadly they quickly withdrew it! Although we can begin selling on Etsy Pakistan, some guidelines are provided below.
If you want to start a business on Etsy, a rapidly expanding online marketplace, then this article will help you get started.
Etsy accepts customers from the US, UK, Australia, Turkey, Italy and other nations.
You must now confirm the items you intend to sell on Etsy (e.g Bags, Shirts, Arts, Dresses, Jewelleries, etc.)
Before you begin making an account, keep in mind that your Etsy account will be suspended if you access the account using a Pakistani IP address.
How to Create Etsy Seller Account in Pakistan
It will be simpler for you to open an Etsy account if you know someone who has friends and family who live in one of the nations that Etsy accepts for selling.
You can also purchase an address from a third party, but watch out for phoney address generators. Both gov.uk and Registeredaddress.co.uk allow you to register a firm address. These are the addresses in the UK.
If you create a false address, they will eventually find you and immediately suspend your active account.
You can purchase a virtual or Skype phone number, or if you have family members, you can borrow their number.
Using the Global Payment Receiving Details, you can make payments using the Renvo or Payoneer account. The payments will be made to your Payoneer account as a result.
The address on the utility bill should match the bill.
Please upload a photo of your ID or passport (front and back photo).
VPS (Virtual Private Server)
If you are accessing your Etsy account from Pakistan, you must absolutely utilise a VPS; otherwise, they will notice and suspend your account.
Note: The addresses, names, and other information on all of the documents should be consistent with one another.
If you are able to begin dropshipping, there is no investment required. The listing costs are the only investment. In addition, the minimum investment is $1,000.
