Based on Etsy Rest API description output, this wrapper provides a simple client with all available methods on Etsy API (thanks to the __call magic PHP method!), validating its arguments on each request (Take a look to for full list of methods and its arguments).


Note: I will be working on remove this dependencies

  • cURL devel:
    • Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install libcurl4-dev
    • Fedora/CentOS: sudo yum install curl-devel
  • OAuth pecl package:
    • sudo pecl install oauth
    • And then add the line to your php.ini


The following recommended installation requires composer. If you are unfamiliar with composer see the composer installation instructions.

Add the following to your composer.json file:

  "require": {
    "rapidwebltd/etsy-php": ">=0.9.0"


All methods has only one argument, an array with two items (both are optional, depends on the method):

  • params: an array with all required params to build the endpoint url.

    Example: getSubSubCategory: GET /categories/:tag/:subtag/:subsubtag

  # it will request /categories/tag1/subtag1/subsubtag1
          'params' => array(
                         'tag' => 'tag1',
                         'subtag' => 'subtag1',
                         'subsubtag' => 'subsubtag1'
  • data: an array with post data required by the method

    Example: createShippingTemplate: POST /shipping/templates

  # it will request /shipping/templates sending the "data" array as the post data
    						'data' => array(
   							    "title" => "First API Template",
   							    "origin_country_id" => 209,
   							    "destination_country_id" => 209,
   							    "primary_cost" => 10.0,
   							    "secondary_cost" => 10.0

OAuth configuration script

Etsy API uses OAuth 1.0 authentication, so lets setup our credentials.

The script scripts/auth-setup.php will generate an OAuth config file required by the Etsy client to make signed requests. Example:

export ETSY_CONSUMER_KEY=qwertyuiop123456dfghj
export ETSY_CONSUMER_SECRET=qwertyuiop12

php scripts/auth-setup.php /path/to/my-oauth-config-destination.php

It will show an URL you must open, sign in on Etsy and allow the application. Then copy paste the verification code on the terminal. (On Mac OSX, it will open your default browser automatically)

Generated OAuth config file

After all, it should looks like this:

 return array (
  'consumer_key' => 'df7df6s5fdsf9sdh8gf9jhg98',
  'consumer_secret' => 'sdgd6sd4d',
  'token_secret' => 'a1234567890qwertyu',
  'token' => '3j3j3h33h3g5',
  'access_token' => '8asd8as8gag5sdg4fhg4fjfgj',
  'access_token_secret' => 'f8dgdf6gd5f4s',


$auth = require('/path/to/my-oauth-config-destination.php');

$client = new Etsy\EtsyClient($auth['consumer_key'], $auth['consumer_secret']);
$client->authorize($auth['access_token'], $auth['access_token_secret']);

$api = new Etsy\EtsyApi($client);

print_r($api->getUser(array('params' => array('user_id' => '__SELF__'))));


 						'data' => array(
							    "title" => "First API Template",
							    "origin_country_id" => 209,
							    "destination_country_id" => 209,
							    "primary_cost" => 10.0,
							    "secondary_cost" => 10.0

# Upload local files: the item value must be an array with the first value as a string starting with "@":
$listing_image = array(
		'params' => array(
			'listing_id' => '152326352'
		'data' => array(
			'image' => array('@/path/to/file.jpg;type=image/jpeg')


You would be able to fetch associations of given your resources using a simple interface:

    $args = array(
            'params' => array(
                'listing_id' => 654321
            // A list of associations
            'associations' => array(
                // Could be a simple association, sending something like: ?includes=Images
                // Or a composed one with (all are optional as Etsy API says) "scope", "limit", "offset", "select" and sub-associations ("associations")
                // ?includes=ShippingInfo(currency_code, primary_cost):active:1:0/DestinationCountry(name,slug)
                'ShippingInfo' => array(
                    'scope' => 'active',
                    'limit' => 1,
                    'offset' => 0,
                    'select' => array('currency_code', 'primary_cost'),
                    // The only issue here is that sub-associations couldn't be more than one, I guess.
                    'associations' => array(
                        'DestinationCountry' => array(
                            'select' => array('name', 'slug')
   $result = $this->api->getListing($args);
