We introduced the Etsy Shop Fitness Calculator on January 18th and have been delighted with the number of sellers who have engaged with it! In just under a week, we had over a thousand Etsy sellers run their shops through the tool. In the infographic above, we’ve broken down the results from other Etsy shops so you can better understand where you stack up! If you’re not a fan of infographics, here’s a quick breakdown of the Etsy Shop Fitness Calculator Results:

Thanks for the info! It’s good to see how my shop compares.
988 sales 69000+ views however it says are you sure you have more views then sales????
OK let me get that the right way around…it sales are you sure you have more sales than views…

Your stats show that the average seller conversion rate is 1.11% (orders divided by views). I assume that means only the shops that have submitted for the “shop fitness calculator” are being factored into your number. If I submit, I’ll blow your statistics to pieces. My conversion rate is a tiny fraction of that number.
Am I correct or does that number actually reflect Etsy as a whole?
A true conversion rate is sales / visitors… not sales / views. Lets say one visitor views 100 pages in a shop (which could include listings, About page, policies, etc.) before purchasing, another views 20 and doesn’t purchase, and another eight view just one page and don’t purchase. If they were the only 10 visitors that day (not necessarily realistic, but just for the sake of this example), the conversion rate would be 10% (1 sale /10 visitors). Using views instead would calculate it as .8% (1 sale /128 page views). But a .8% conversion rate really means that an average of 8 visitors out of 1,000 converted to a sale. Not even close to this scenario. (And potentially very discouraging to a shop owner when comparing to average ecommerce conversion rates!)
Having Google Analytics set up is really the best way to get a clearer picture of conversion rate since you can at least track visitor counts there. But even that isn’t ideal since Etsy doesn’t insert Google Analytics code in the places that really matter for tracking conversion.
Oops, I meant to leave this as a reply to Sandi above. Sorry about that!
I just signed up and can’t get the Etsy Shop Fitness Calculator to work. I’ve filled in everything, but can’t get beyond that. It does nothing…

I know my shop is in trouble, that’s why I’m here in Marmalead. But the hard cold facts made a realistic impression. There’s work to do and I’m ready for it. 1 Step at a time.
That’s the spirit Hollye! One step at a time, even if they’re baby steps.
Wow. I have a LOT to learn. Whew!
I was roaming through the website to learn how to use the tools better, found this page, clicked the link and after a few tries realized the post was from 2016 🙂
Does the calculator still works ?
