How Long Does Etsy Take to Ship?

Depending on the shipping method and company, Etsy orders can take between 2 to 3 business days for local deliveries to ship. That number stands at around 10 to 12 business days for international deliveries.

Etsy does not ship the products themselves. Instead, individual sellers ship the products after receiving orders.

The estimated delivery date depends on the processing and transit time. Processing time is how long the seller takes to create and pack the items. Transit time is when your package is in transit with the shipping company.

If the processing time is 2 to 3 days and transit time is 4 to 5 days, then your estimated delivery date should be 6 to 8 days from the day you place the order.
