If you run an Etsy Shop and you use Etsy Payments, you must have a credit or debit card on file. Updating your card on file can help prevent overdue bills, which may be subject to penalties such as restricted account privileges, shop suspension, and removal of the Star Seller badge.
- Open the Sell on Etsy app and tap More.
- Tap Finances, then Payment settings.
- Tap the dropdown and select Billing.
- Tap Edit or Add a new card.
- Enter your card details and tap Save.
You can add a prepaid card to your account if you already have a credit or debit card. However, a non-reloadable prepaid card can’t be your only or primary payment card. If you try to add a non-reloadable prepaid card as the only card on file, you will see an error message. You can always pay your bill manually with a non-reloadable prepaid card
If you’re a seller with a bank account in Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands, you aren’t required to have a credit or debit card on file for Etsy Payments.
If you updated your billing card because an auto-billed payment failed, you’ll need to make a manual payment.
