The major competitors of Etsy

While a thorough knowledge of the Etsy group and its activities is essential before trading this stock, it is also important to know who the main competitors of the company are. Check out this quick presentation of the direct opponents of the group and their activities:


First of all, the American eBay marketplace which is famous for its e-commerce website was created in 1995 and has become a true benchmark in its sector worldwide. Currently, its platform has over 185 million active users worldwide. The company employs more than 13,000 people and generates over $ 10 billion in annual sales. It has had tremendous success from its inception to the present day.


Of course, the giant Amazon is also a competitor to be reckoned with, which is a world-renowned e-commerce company and one of the current giants of the web. Once only specialized in non-store retailing, Amazon has since diversified into other activities, some of which are in direct competition with Etsy. With nearly a million employees, the group has sites based in numerous countries.


Finally, Etsy's last serious competitor is of course the Shopify group. It is an e-commerce platform operating in SaaS mode and based on a proprietary model. It allows individuals and businesses to create and run their own online store. The shops are also hosted for a monthly fee.
