Downloading Etsy Files on the iPad (How To Get Your Etsy Instant Downloads)

Are you getting frustrated trying to access your instant download on Etsy via the iPad or tablet? I’ll show you how to download printables or digital downloads from your iPad.

Today’s post is a quick Etsy tutorial on how to get your Etsy downloads on your tablet.

Whenever you buy a digital product on Etsy you can easily access it via your desktop or laptop browser by going on the tab under your profile picture, then clicking on reviews and purchase, then go to the item file and then click to download it.

It’s surprising though how they haven’t worked out a way to allow users to access their Etsy digital downloads from the application, after all more and more buyers are making their purchases using their tablets or mobile devices.

Let me show you how frustrating this can be on the app.

At the moment of this recording if I go to my Etsy app and look for my purchases you see I have no option on this screen to access my Etsy instant downloads.

So, what we want to do is go to open the browser on my iPad and access Etsy from there.

You can use Safari I’m going to use Google Chrome here. Now go to and log in.

From your profile at the top right corner here you can access your purchase and reviews.

We can find what you want to download and then click to download your files. Once you have it downloaded ai should find it on your downloads folder

I myself only upload one-page PDF file that is not very large and is also not a zip file and that contains the link to the cloud where my customers can download their products.

Even though now the new iOS unzip files automatically I still like to provide this one page pdf because I don’t want my customers to have to download massive files to their devices, because I know not everyone has plenty of available space on their devices.

From the cloud, they can access their purchases from any of their devices and re-download if needed. And this is the hack for downloading Etsy files on your tablet or iPad.
