For sellers in the EU, Hong Kong, Singapore or Switzerland

If your bank account is located in the EU, Hong Kong, Singapore or Switzerland, you will need to verify your bank account before you can receive any funds from your sales for compliance purposes.

Within 3-5 business days of enrolling in Etsy Payments, Etsy will send a small deposit, processed by our third party payment partners, Adyen or WorldPay, to your bank account. You’ll need to enter the small deposit amount in your Payment account in order to verify your bank account for compliance purposes.

If you’re setting up a new shop, you’ll receive a small deposit to your bank account after you open your shop to the public. No deposit will be sent to your bank account while your shop is in draft mode.

You’ll receive emails from Etsy to remind you to verify your bank account to continue to get paid.

To verify your bank account:

You will also see a Verify bank button in Shop Manager under the Shop advisor section. This will link directly to verifying your bank account.

If the Verify account button on the popup is not active, wait until you receive the small deposit in your bank account and then try to verify your bank account on Etsy.

If you don’t verify your bank account within 90 days of updating your bank details, your shop will be suspended.

For sellers in Australia

Sellers in Australia must have a residential address on file with their Australian bank. This address must be used for Etsy Payments. We are unable to accept a PO box as a residential address.

You can update your address in Shop Manager.
