From 1st July 2021 it is compulsory to add an HS code (customs tariff number) to your label when you are shipping items to, or within, the EU.
Etsy is working on a program to generate a suggested HS code based on your selected category and description but this is still in development. At present all Etsy sellers need to identify and put an HS code on all their parcels. This of course applies to eBay and all other selling platforms. The sites recommended produce codes suitable for all selling sites and for use in all countries worldwide.
