Etsy is an online marketplace that specializes in selling handmade or vintage items, as well as unique factory–manufactured items. Etsy has been described as “the world‘s largest handmade marketplace“ and “a crafty cross between Amazon and eBay“.
Etsy has been criticized for allowing fake or counterfeit items to be sold on its platform; in 2019, the company announced that it would be taking steps to combat the issue, including improved detection of and removal of fake listings, and increased transparency around the issue.
