As stated in the press release, Etsy Payments is at the core of Etsy's payments technology. It is a flexible and secure payment infrastructure that aims to benefit both buyers and sellers. Buyers are able to transact confidently and depending on their market, have access to choose from a range of local payment methods, including PayPal, credit, debit, bank card, Etsy Gift Cards, and Etsy Credits. For sellers, Etsy Payments enables them to reach more potential customers and reduce friction at checkout – which increases the likelihood of conversion – while simplifying how they get paid.
