I’m Having Trouble with the Format of My Bank for My Deposits

The format of your bank account that’s required to receive deposits varies by country. Your bank can provide more information on the format you should use, as well as confirm your bank account details to ensure they’re entered correctly on Etsy.

Additional information

Australia

  • Bank name
  • Full name on account
  • BSB code (6-digits)
  • Account number (1-9-digits)

 

As of January 1, 2020, the address on file for your AU bank account may not be a P.O. Box.

Format of the BSB code: The first two digits to indicate the "bank" and the other four digits to specify the "branch" of that bank. The first digit of the branch digits is the state code indicating the state where the branch was located. 

For example, the Australian BSB code "033088" breaks down to:

  • 03 = Westpac Banking Corporation, historically the trading operation
  • 3 = Victoria
  • 088 = 383 Chapel Street, Prahran

To update your bank account on file, go to your Payment settings. On the Etsy Seller app, go to More > Finances > Payment settings and the Billing dropdown.

If you're required to accept deposits from Etsy to a Payoneer account, you’ll update your bank account on Payoneer. Learn more on Payoneer’s site and contact Payoneer if you need help.

You may need to provide your bank with a government-issued photo ID, your Social Security Card and other proof of identity. Then you will be able to update your bank account information for your Etsy shop.

If you're unable to retrieve your old bank account, you will need to open a new Etsy shop.
To open a second Etsy shop, sign out and create a new account with a new shop:

  1. On Etsy.com, choose Your account.
  2. Select Sign out.
  3. Select Sign in.
  4. Choose Register.
  5. Enter an email address not associated with another Etsy account, enter your name, and create a password. Select Register.
  6. Follow the steps to open your shop.

US sellers

You may have received an email from noreply@etsy.com, mail@etsy.com, or etsy@mail.etsy.com asking you to verify your bank account using Plaid, a third-party service. Learn more about using Plaid to update and verify your bank account.

If your shop isn't open yet, you can do this on the How You’ll Get Paid page. If your shop is already open, go to your Payment settings.

Sellers outside the US

If you see Come Back Later instead of the button to verify your test deposit, please try again in the next day or two. We’re unable to remove the Come Back Later message.

If Etsy says the amount you’re entering is wrong, make sure you choose the button in the banner (not the edit button) and enter it exactly as it appears on your statement. If your bank account is in a different currency than your shop’s Payment account, contact your bank to ask for the amount before the currency conversion.

If you’ve tried updating your bank more than once, you’ll get multiple test deposits. Be sure to enter the most recent deposit, as each new attempt voids the prior deposit. If you just tried updating your bank account, wait up to 5 business days for the new deposit to reach your statement.

If you haven’t received the test deposit, wait 5 business days and then try updating your bank account again. If it still doesn’t appear after another 5 days, confirm your details with your bank or add a different bank account.

If your shop is suspended, but you can verify your test deposit, do so on Etsy.com before asking for help reinstating your shop.
