Making this kind of change requires just a couple of moments of your time. You can make the change on the website, but you can also do this using the app.


If you prefer using the Etsy app, follow the steps below:

  • Open the app on your smartphone or tablet
  • Tap “You” at the bottom of the screen
  • Next, tap Settings

  • Tap Select Currency
  • Select the currency you want


  • Open the browser of your choice, go to and log in
  • Next, click on your profile photo or click on the option “You” in the top-right corner
  • Now click on Account Settings

  • Click on the Preferences tab

  • Find the Currency section
  • You will see that British pound is set as a default one and you will also notice the available currencies
  • Select the one you want

  • Once you select the currency you prefer, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, and click on Update Preferences

When you do this, the prices will be shown in the currency you have selected.

For instance, I’ve changed the currency to EUR, and now all the prices are listed in euros as you can see in the image above.
