Adyen Brings Bitcoin Payments To Over 1.7 Million Etsy Sellers
The company primarily focuses on global payment options, and Bitcoin is at the top of that list.
Etsy is one of the most popular online platforms for creators and crafters. Quite a few people have managed to earn a living from selling their crafted goods on Etsy so far. The company acknowledges this potential and expanded their range of accepted payment methods. By partnering with Adyen, Bitcoin payments may be on the horizon for the platform’s users.
From the moment Etsy was introduced, creators of physical objects saw it as a great way to sell their products to customers all over the world. Among items, one can find there are custom Pokemon balls, clothing, and wooden objects. For people who like to create things and collect valuable feedback from potential customers, Etsy is the platform to do so.
But the platform has been dealing with drawbacks as well. Particularly where payments are concerned, the options are somewhat limited. Additionally, there is very limited support for local currencies, which is not great either. For a company with such a global appeal – and serving 1.7 million sellers – things had to change.
