  • This section is to set a different price for all the products.

  • In the first section, there are multiple options, namely, Increase by Fixed Price, Increase by Fixed Percentage, Decrease by Fixed Price, and Decrease by Fixed Percentage. Wondering what do they result in? Read on below.

  1. Increase by Fixed Price: If selected, then the Enter Amount field appears and you may enter a price that would be added to the price of your product on the Etsy store. How? Lets say, if your product price is 100 on Magento and you enter an amount of 100 by selecting the Increase by Fixed Price option, your product would be sold on Etsy with an additional 100 of amount.

  2. Increase by Fixed Percentage: If selected, then the Enter Percentage field appears.
    You may enter the percentage value to increase the price of the Etsy product price by the entered value of % of Magento price.
    For Example, Magento price + 5% of Magento price.
    Magento Price = 100
    Increase By Fixed Percentage option
    Enter Percentage = 5
    100 + 5% of 100 = 100 + 5 = 105
    Etsy Product Price = 105

  3. Decrease by Fixed Price: If selected, then the Enter Amount field appears and it works as explained in the Increase by Fixed Price section, but by reducing the product price as compared to Magento on Etsy, by the entered amount.

  4. Decrease by Fixed Percentage: On selecting, the Enter Percentage field appears.
    Enter the numeric value to decrease the price of the
    Etsy product price by the entered value % of Magento price
    For Example, Magento price – 5% of Magento price.
    Magento Price = 100
    Decrease By Fixed Percentage option
    Enter Percentage = 5
    100 – 5% of 100 = 100 – 5 = 95
    As a result, Etsy Product Price = 95.
