How does connecting my Etsy shop work?
There are 2 important elements to linking your Etsy shop to Seller Ledger:
To start, you will be redirected to Etsy in order to log into your account there and grant Seller Ledger permission to connect to your account and, on a regular basis, download information necessary to automate as much as your bookkeeping as possible. You may go back into your Etsy shop at any time and revoke that permission.
Importing your sales and expense information
Seller Ledger retrieves the following information from your Etsy shop:
- Transaction history, which includes anything that impacts your Etsy shop balance, including payouts
- Order details, which allows us to break down the amount you earned from item sales, the amount of shipping collected, and the amount of sales tax collected (which does NOT get included in your income totals.)
When you first link your Etsy shop, Seller Ledger goes back and retrieves 90 days of transaction history. If you sign up and pay for an annual plan, we will go back and retrieve the most recent tax year's data (up to 15 months.)
Once linked, Seller Ledger will import new Etsy sales and expense data multiple times a day going forward.
Adding multiple Etsy shops is easy - just make sure you follow the one important step each time.
