Website Integration with Etsy

Updated: Feb 11, 2022

I started this journey to connect my Etsy shop to Facebook shop.


How to connect my Etsy shop to Facebook shop


Facebook Shop

1. You need to have a Facebook page and a Facebook business manager account.




2. Login to Facebook Business Manager and go to domain verification page.




3. Add a new domain as shopname.etsy.com

Don't copy the URL! make your domain with yourshopname.etsy.com!


4. Copy the meta-tag verification code to Etsy Facebook Shops Page and click connect.




After that, you need to add the product to Facebook Catalog Manually


Please read the related forum from the Etsy community below,



Simply, I want my Etsy products to be visible from Facebook Shop. It would be great to have multi-channels to sell but it is hard to control. I need help to organize so I look for 3rd party eCommerce can integrate the sales channels with my Etsy Shop.


I compared Shopify, Godaddy, Squarespace, and Wix and tried Godaddy, Squarespace, and Wix.


I am not an expert so I had to look at many articles to see the comparison. Please see my simple comparison chart.

The price plans are almost the same. They all offer a first-year discount. Godaddy offers free 1 year if you are an Amazon business prime member. I got an offer from Wix for 50%.


Transaction fees are almost the same but Shopify and Squarespace charge a little more depending on the price plan.


Domain - If you are starting from scratch, you may want to consider a free domain.


Design - I just built 6 websites from Godaddy, Squarespace, and Wix. I am more of a visual person so I spent more time picking the layout but after all, it is the same. I just need one website so l do not need a hundred choices.


Etsy Integration

Godaddy - So far the best integration. Etsy's products appeared on the website and can be controlled from one place. You can connect to eBay, the same. The only thing is Godaddy changes the quantity based on the inventory system so it is a little confusing. Need some time to adjust.


Wix - Etsy integration is not available. Just an 'Add-on' page.

Basically, it will lead to an Etsy shop for purchase. You need to add an 'app' and it will create a new page that shows all Etsy listings. Also, the page opens very slow on loading to bring up the listings. It is not recommended to have your own website by Wix if you want to do business mainly at Etsy. Totally different site in one.


Etsy Add-On Page By Wix

Shopify has the same concept of add-on 'app' but I didn't try as it was already difficult when I helped my friend to set up a Facebook shop with Shopify.


Squarespace - Etsy integration is available + Etsy reviews

Best recommended the website to run Etsy and your own website.

You can set up a separate shop page and purchases can be done in one transaction at Squarespace. The page layout is pretty simple and the best thing is you can see all of your Etsy reviews. It will show all your sold-out listings but you can edit easily.


Ta-da! Here I am at 'by Wix'


I started this journey to show my Etsy items on Facebook Shop.

Etsy shop integrated to my website by Wix and my website integrated to Facebook shop without my Etsy items. Bravo!😨

It will not show because Etsy integration is not available by Wix. Squarespace may work but that's it. I spent 8 days and nights.


I want to have my website to built relationships and want to communicate more as Etsy has some limits.


I have to add the products manually here and there and Wix is a pretty slower platform but I can try the subscription happy box and run a customer loyalty program so it is not bad.


I decide not to go with Squarespace even if they are great for Etsy.

The Subscription product is flexible but available for a much higher price plan and doesn't have member pages. (Their membership is different) Most of all, do not recommend blogging with Squarespace.

3 am?? Done for now!


If you have any questions, let me know.

Good night!
