How do I calculate my conversion rate on Etsy?
You can see you conversion rate on your Etsy stats page. That looks something like this.
You can also calculate your conversion on your own! The math is pretty simple. Take the number of sales you’ve had divided by your number of visits times 100.
Let’s do that for my example above. 353 orders/12,400 visits = 0.028 x 100 = 2.8%. (Etsy has rounded 12.4k visits in the above photos which is why the numbers don’t match exactly.)
You can use this same equation for your shop as a whole or for individual listings.
