Etsy is asking sellers who accept Etsy Payments to provide their full name if they don’t already have a first and last name on file.
If this applies to you, and you haven’t updated your account yet, you may currently be unable to receive deposits from Etsy. You’ll need to update your banking information on file, and your account should be updated by the next business day.
How to confirm full name
We ask that you enter your full name along with your Etsy Payments bank information for confirmation.
The full name you enter must match your shop’s bank account information, but this can be different from your seller or shop manager’s name.
If you have any issues entering your full name, or if you do not have a last name, please contact email@example.com for further guidance. Make sure “LAST NAME VERIFICATION REQUIRED” is in the subject line so we can get right to your email.
Full name example: “Anna Smith”
Not recommended: “A. Smith”
If the bank account name is a business instead of a person, enter the full business name along with a business entity. Some common business entities: Ltd., AB, LP
Full business name example: “Klimpys LP”
Not recommended: “KlimpysLP”
If the business name is only one word and you are a sole proprietor, the account name should be the owner's full name "d/b/a/" business name.
Full business name example: “John Smith d/b/a Klimpys”
Not allowed: "Klimpys"
Not recommended: "John Smith"
