Etsy to increase fees from seller sales

People who sell items on Etsy will soon pay more to do so.

Starting next month, the online craft marketplace is increasing the fee it charges when a seller makes a sale.

Etsy is also going to start charging a fee to cover shipping costs.

The sit says the higher fees will allow it to invest in ways to attract more buyers to the platform, build seller tools and enhance customer support.

Next month Etsy will run its first national TV ad in the US during NBC's new reality crafting competition 'Making It'.
