Version Comments
A few clarifications throughout.
This is the initial version that ParanoidPaul captured. It is not necessarily the first version of the document.

	Etsy sellers may receive credits to be used on our website and mobile apps (the “Services”) through Etsy’s referral programmes. This Seller Referrals Policy explains the requirements you need to meet in order to receive credits. You may only send referral invitations to friends or individuals who consent to receiving this type of message. You must also comply with any applicable local laws.  

	This policy is a part of our Terms of Use. By participating in one of Etsy’s referral programmes, you’re agreeing to this policy and our Terms of Use. 

	As an Etsy seller, you can receive credits toward listing items on our marketplace (“Listing Credits”) through Etsy’s Seller Referral Programme. To participate, sign in to your Etsy account and follow the directions on the Seller Referral page ( to invite friends who have not previously registered to sell (“First-Time Sellers”) to become Etsy sellers. Valid invitations must include a unique link generated on the Seller Referral page. 

	Both you and a First-Time Seller who receives a valid invitation from you will receive Listing Credits from Etsy after the First-Time Seller clicks the unique link from your invitation, opens an Etsy shop and lists an item for sale for the first time. 

	Listing Credits may only be applied toward fees for listing new items or renewing previously listed items for sale on our website or mobile apps. Listing Credits may not be applied toward a purchase on our marketplace or any previously accrued fees due to Etsy. Should you or the First-Time Seller use Listing Credits to list items that are prohibited by Etsy, the items shall be subject to removal by Etsy at its sole discretion and the redeemed Listing Credits shall not be reinstated. Listing Credits do not expire, but they will be voided within an Etsy account in the event of that account’s closure for any reason. 

	Credits are not transferable and may not be sold or exchanged for cash. If you or your friends do not comply with this policy, or do not follow the directions on the referral pages or valid invitations, you may not receive the applicable credits, and Etsy will not be liable for any such non-compliance. Invitations may expire. 

	Participation in the referral programmes may be limited to Etsy members located in certain countries or using certain currencies, and is void where prohibited by law. Etsy reserves the right to modify or terminate the referral programmes at any time. 

	Etsy reserves the right to cancel or rescind credits if it determines in its sole discretion that any party has violated this policy or Etsy’s Terms of Use, including through any fraudulent or misleading referral activity (for example, by using multiple identities, email addresses or Etsy accounts, otherwise providing false or misleading information, or conducting any kind of funny business) or if the party’s Etsy account is closed for any reason.
