Credit and debit cards
Sellers who accept credit and debit cards on Etsy accept most major credit issuers, including:
You may see a pending transaction on your credit card bill for a small amount. This is a pre-authorization test to ensure your card is valid. Once your card has been validated, it will be dropped from your statement.
If you choose to pay through PayPal, you’ll be redirected to a secure PayPal page and then back to Etsy to confirm the order. When purchasing using PayPal on a multi-shop checkout, you can purchase from up to 10 shops in one transaction.
You may be able to pay with a card via PayPal without a PayPal account. Here’s how:
- Click Check out with PayPal and you’ll be redirected to PayPal. Instead of choosing to pay with your PayPal account, select Pay with Debit or Credit Card.
- You’ll be prompted to fill in your billing and credit card information.
- Enter your email address so PayPal can send you a receipt.
- Click Continue to return to Etsy. Your payment isn’t sent until you click the Submit order on Etsy.
PayPal places restrictions on how often you can use their Guest Checkout feature.
A bank transfer is when money is sent from one bank account to another. Transferring money from your bank account is usually fast, free and safer than withdrawing and paying in cash. Read on for more information, including how to make a bank transfer and what details you’ll need.
Apple Pay is a mobile payment service available to many iOS buyers who are shopping on the mobile app or Safari on desktop or mobile.
