Etsy partners with Payoneer, a third-party payment provider, to offer Etsy Payments in Argentina, Chile, India, Japan, Peru, Thailand, and Ukraine.
We’re working on making Etsy Payments available to sellers in these countries. Once it’s available to you, you’ll see a message to enroll in Etsy Payments in your Payment settings.
In order to use Etsy Payments you’ll need to first sign up for Payoneer. It’s simple to set up and link to your Etsy account, making it easy for you to get paid to your Payoneer Payment Account and transfer money from there to your local bank account.
If you’re located in a different country, this won’t apply to you. Learn about accepting Etsy Payments.
What is Payoneer?
Payoneer is a money transfer service used across many countries and companies. Once money is deposited into your Payoneer Payment Account, you can choose to pay for other transactions from your Payoneer Payment Account, or you can deposit the funds into a bank account.
Why does Etsy partner with Payoneer?
Partnering with Payoneer means Etsy can welcome many more sellers who had previously been unable to open a shop because of the difficulties enabling Etsy Payments in their country. By partnering with Payoneer, we can offer the benefits of Etsy Payments, like Purchase Protection, to more sellers.
Payoneer is a regulated financial institution that is obligated to follow the strictest security practices. Funds managed by Payoneer are kept in segregated, safeguarded accounts by legal requirement. Check out Payoneer’s Security Center for more information about their security features and tips on how to keep a Payoneer Payment Account secure.
How does Payoneer work with Etsy?
When you make a sale, the funds are sent to your payment account on Etsy. Any fees you owe are applied to incoming funds, and any remaining amount becomes available for deposit.
Available funds are sent to your Payoneer Payment Account each Monday. Funds will be available in your Payoneer Payment Account once they are transferred. Currently, Payoneer users aren’t able to schedule deposits for a different time.
Once the funds are in your Payoneer Payment Account, you can deposit the funds to your bank account, or you can use the money to make other transactions from your Payoneer Payment Account. It typically takes 2–5 business days for the funds to appear in your bank account after you have requested withdrawal to your bank.
You won’t accept payments directly from Etsy buyers with your Payoneer Payment Account.
Etsy only supports deposits in United States Dollars (USD) to your Payoneer Payment Account. However, you can withdraw earnings from your Payoneer Payment Account to your local bank account in over 150 countries and currencies with Payoneer's bank transfer withdrawal service. Payoneer may charge a fee for this service. Learn more about Payoneer’s fees.
You can list your items in the same currency as your Etsy Payment account to avoid a currency conversion fee charged by Etsy. The currency you list items in is separate from what shoppers see. Shoppers choose their own currency to browse Etsy, and Etsy automatically converts the currency displayed on all items shown to them anywhere they see items on Etsy. Learn more.
Payoneer may place a minimum on the amount you can withdraw into your bank account at one time.
Payoneer withdrawal limits vary by banking country and currency. Learn more in Payoneer’s Support Center.
