Buyer Terms
Integration with Etsy Local 


	Prospective buyers must apply and be approved by Etsy to purchase on the Etsy Wholesale marketplace. Buyers must represent retail businesses and may only make purchases on Etsy Wholesale to resell the purchased items. Buyers must be able to provide a valid Resale Tax ID, VAT, BN, or ABN number for your business. Buyers may only sell purchased items at the business that is represented on their application; false representation is considered a violation of our policies. 

	Etsy reserves the right to approve or reject any application to join Etsy Wholesale and to refuse service to anyone, for any reason, at any time. 


	Placing Etsy Wholesale orders outside the Etsy Wholesale purchase order system is considered fee avoidance and may result in the suspension or termination of your account. All orders on Etsy Wholesale must be placed through the Etsy Wholesale purchase order system, unless you have entered into a written contractual agreement with Etsy to make Etsy Wholesale purchases off the website. Please contact for information about off-site wholesale orders. 


	Buyers agree with the following terms: 

	 You guarantee that you represent a retail business and have the authority to enter into agreements on behalf of that business.
 	 When issued an invoice for an order, you agree to make payment in accordance with the seller’s policies. Non-payment or late payment may result in the suspension or termination of your account and subject you to other collection mechanisms.
 	 You agree to allow sellers and Etsy to contact you via phone, email, or Etsy’s Conversations tool (“Convos”) regarding orders you place. Not responding to inquiries from Etsy within seven (7) calendar days may result in the suspension or termination of your account.


	Select buyers may be featured as Local Stores on our Etsy Local platform. To learn about the requirements for being listed on Etsy Local, visit this Help article.
