How to Change Your Email on Etsy

All important notifications associated with Etsy, such as orders, payments, and updates, are sent to your email address. Etsy makes it convenient for buyers and sellers to change their email address.

Things you need to know before changing your email on Etsy

  1. You can only change your email address on the website (not the app).
  2. You must wait 24 hours to change a recently changed email address to a new one.
  3. An email address can be attached to only one Etsy account.
  4. Closing an account doesn’t free up the email address. If you want to use an email address attached to a closed account for your live account, you need to reopen the closed account and replace its email address. Then you’ll be able to use that email address for the live account since it’s no longer attached to any other Etsy account.
  5. If you use PayPal to accept payments from Etsy, you’ll need to change your PayPal email separately from your Etsy account email.
