Many sellers who are making use of the Etsy platform to do their business are impressed with the transaction policy that the ecommerce business offers and now the company is ready to offer Direct Checkout system for their sellers. The main aspect of the Direct Checkout is that the sellers can offer different payment methods like money orders and pay checks, and also if the sellers do not have their merchant credit card, the shoppers can use their credit card and Etsy gift certificates. Thus the online marketplace broadened their Direct Checkout technique to many countries in Europe. But because of the Direct Checkout system, the sellers outside the United States are given only two weeks of notice to select between their own standalone PayPal account and integrated PayPal account. So if the sellers choose the integrated PayPal account they cannot change to the standalone account after the deadline. December 15th, 2015 was the last date for the sellers in the United States, and the online company extended the deadline to February 15th, 2016 for the sellers in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Ireland.
According the company, if the sellers opt for the Direct Checkout system they are provided with a lot of payment options like the credit card, debit card, gift certificate, Apple Pay, Sofort and iDEAL. So if the buyers use any one of the payment options to pay their amount, it is transferred into the Shop Payment Account and then the amount is deposited in the seller’s bank account. The European countries where the Direct Checkout is available are the Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Malta, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Cyprus, Lithuania, Poland and Hungary. The details about the Direct Checkout system in European countries and their deadlines are mentioned on the online marketplace’s website.
