Running a successful business online has become a challenge for small enterprises, especially because of fierce competition from the more established and bigger companies with deep pockets. It takes grit and a lot of focus and strategic business decisions to increase your business revenue streams.
One good way to expand business reach is to open online stores in famous e-commerce platforms such as eBay, Amazon, Shopify, and Etsy.
An e-commerce platform that connects sellers and buyers of artistic items, vintage finds, handmade goods, and other crafts, Etsy has made it easier for users to download their data. The app also makes it possible for sellers to download their listings or check their sales by downloading a spreadsheet of their transactions.
If you’re a novice at using e-commerce platforms and want guidance on how to download your Etsy data, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll show you a step-by-step guide on how to export a .CSV file from Etsy for easier access.
Doing the following steps allows Etsy users to download a .ZIP (compressed) file, both in CSV and JSON formats, which can be accessed for two weeks.
These file formats are supported by programming languages such as Java, PHP, Python, and Ruby. On the other hand, CSV file formats are less complicated, more compact, and compatible with other spreadsheets such as Google Sheets and MS Excel. Between the two, we recommend Etsy users to download their files via CSV format.
Etsy sellers will receive their shop information in the ZIP file, as well.
If you’re a seller on Etsy and want to have access to your shop information only, here’s what you can do:
The following Etsy listings information can be accessed via the .CSV file you’ve just downloaded:
Moving data from one platform to another cuts the seller time and ensures that attention is fixed on other things that require more effort, such as thinking of ways to grow the client base.
To check if your revenues match the actual amount you received so far from your Etsy store, download the .CSV files of your monthly statements and sold order history.
Here’s how to have access to the spreadsheet CSV file containing a record of your transactions:
Your downloaded .CSV spreadsheet will include a list of all your orders with additional information, as shown below:

Etsy Payments Deposits – all deposits made to your bank account
You may opt to download each of the parameters for a specific month or get all the data for the whole year.
Running a successful online business requires businesses to integrate all applications for ready access to important information. This allows enterprise owners to have basis for critical business decisions.
To access .CSV files from Etsy of other sources in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, do the following:
You may open the CSV file as a read-only file, meaning you can only view and not make changes to it. You can do this by clicking the drop-down icon next to the Open tab.
An easier option is using the CSV URL to check the data online. To do this, simply open Google Sheets and write =importData(“CSV URL”) on the browser.
Data integration is critical in all businesses in that it leads to a more comprehensive analysis of your business performance to base your next moves on. To view your data from Etsy and make it more accessible and overall “friendlier”, download it in CSV format.
