What is an Etsy Printable?
Updated: Nov 27, 2020
So you’re scrolling through Etsy and continue to see the words “DIGITAL DOWNLOAD”/ “PRINTABLE”/ “PDF” and so on. You may be thinking to yourself what the heck is all of these products? Well, my friend, Etsy is one of the few marketplaces that offer the opportunity for “digital products” to be sold.
A digital product (printable) is similar to selling a physical product, except you upload the file your customers will receive when they make a purchase. Then after a customer purchased the digital product, it is immediately available to the customer.
Anything from sewing templates to travel guides and even meditation music is considered digital products, as long as the product is offered in a digital format- png, pdf,mp3 and so on. A digital download limits the headache of delivery increases your audience since essentially anyone can purchase your listing and it offers the buyer instant gratification.
