Paying via PayPal

Generally, a buyer needs a PayPal account to pay via PayPal, but they may be able to pay using a card through PayPal without having a PayPal account.

  1. The buyer selects PayPal as the payment method during checkout. The buyer is then directed to PayPal to complete the payment process.
  2. After submitting payment through PayPal, the buyer is directed back to a confirmation page on Etsy. Etsy and PayPal will send the buyer and seller an email receipt.
  3. Depending on which method of PayPal the seller uses, the funds will either be deposited in their payment account on Etsy or their own PayPal account.

If you're buying from a seller that accepts PayPal and Etsy Payments, you can purchase from up to 10 shops in a single transaction. Learn more about multi-shop checkout on Etsy.

Etsy is not affiliated with PayPal.
