A Store Management App That No Longer Processes Payments
Sell on Etsy is a mobile app that enables an Etsy merchant to manage their Etsy stores from their mobile phone or tablet. Prior to March 31, 2018, the Sell on Etsy app included a card swiper that could accept in-person credit card payments using a free mobile phone app and a headphone jack card reader. It has since discontinued this product, and Etsy merchants who would like to make in-person sales now need to accept in-person payments via Square. Etsy’s only payment processing service is Etsy Payments, an e-commerce-only payment processing option that we will cover in a future review. Etsy charges a $0.20 listing fee for items, a 5% transaction fee, and 3% plus $0.25 for payment processing.
Etsy Card Reader Terms
Before it was discontinued, Existing Etsy merchants could request a free card reader through the mail and begin accepting payments after they enabled Etsy Direct Checkout for their online stores and downloaded the Sell on Etsy app. Funds captured through the Etsy reader and app were deposited directly into the merchant’s bank account every Monday, but merchants could manually initiate a deposit on other days of the week. Each swiped transaction through the Etsy reader was charged a per-transaction fee of 2.75%, while each keyed-in transaction received a rate of 3% plus $0.25.
Etsy Location and Ownership
Sell on Etsy was intended for Etsy merchants who operate physical sales locations such as festival booths, flea market tables, or seasonal shops. Sales processed through the Sell on Etsy app were automatically deducted from an Etsy merchant’s online inventory. In-person payments were also not subject to Etsy’s general per-transaction fee of 3.5%, and “Quick Sales”—in-person sales of items that are not listed in the Etsy store—are not subject to Etsy’s $0.20 listing fee. The Sell on Etsy app is available on iPhone and iPad (iOS 7 or later) and Android devices (Android 4.0 or later). Josh Silverman is the CEO of Etsy which is headquarted at 117 Adams St., Brooklyn, NY 11201.
