You must join the Etsy affiliate program first, which is only available through Awin and ShareASale. Here's the link for the US program: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affiliate-programs/etsy-us

Are you based in the US or a different country?

I have joined and was accepted by the Canadian Etsy, I am not American. Do I have to apply for the US Etsy separately as well?

No, you're good. But only use code which comes from the Awin platform to implement affiliate links on your site. You can either:

1. Create those links using the LinkBuilder tool
2. Pull the links by using the MyAwin Chrome Extension, which gives you your affiliate link for whatever Etsy page you are on.
3. Adding the Publisher MasterTag to your site, which would automatically convert any existing Etsy links to monetized links whenever someone clicks on them.

Hope that helps!

I'm sorry I can't help with this as I was not accepted by Etsy as an affiliate. It sounds like you are getting some great help below!

Me again, I am still trying to get my Etsy. I did add the plug in but I am now having a terrible time getting this API key. I have been playing in Google for 2 days and have generated numerous API keys from Google but none of them are valid apparently. I can write like crazy but I'm a little slower with anything computer. Is there a resource for adding this. I am getting very frustrated wasting 2 days of good content writing on trying to get a number.

Hey, that works if you have an Etsy store, but if you are an Etsy affiliate, you can only use links which come from Awin. The plugin will not track affiliate sales.
