How to calculate your cost of manufacture
First, make a list of every inventoriable material that you have used to produce the item - let's call this your "recipe". For each item in your recipe, calculate your manufacturing unit price for each: this can be calculated using a rolling average calculation on your purchase history for the material and converting to a suitable unit of measurement (e.g pounds to ounces). Don't forget to include hidden costs like shipping and taxes paid. Finally, calculate how much you used up and multiply this by your manufacturing unit price.

How to use the Etsy Fee Calculator
This 2019 Etsy Fee Calculator calculates how much it will cost you in Etsy Fees based on your location, product's sale price and any shipping costs you charge to the customer. This fee calculator includes Etsy Listing Fees, Etsy Seller Fees and Etsy Payments / PayPal Fees.
- 1. To begin, select your Seller Location from the dropdown (this is important as Etsy Payment fees and PayPal fees are calculated based on your location).
- 2. Select if you are processing this sale via Etsy Payments or PayPal using the Payment Method option.
- 3. Now enter the total sale price of your product in the box called Sale Price.
- 4. If you have charged an additional amount for shipping, you can enter this next in the field called Shipping + Tax. Your Etsy Seller Fees are calculated on both your sale and shipping cost, so it's important to include this amount. If you are offering free shipping, set this to zero.
- 5. You'll now notice that the Etsy Fee and Transaction Fee boxes will automatically be calculated for you here. The amount under Etsy Fee is your listing fee and the commission fee of 5%. The Transaction Fee is the additional amount Etsy or PayPal charges to process the payment through their system. Both of these fees added together is what Etsy will charge you in fees to process your sale.
- 6. If you'd like to see a breakdown of profit, enter in the cost of making your product including overheads and any other additional fees and costs. You'll then see that the box called Est. Profit will display with your profit from the Etsy sale.
