If you are into handmade goods and art, you might have already heard about Etsy – a wonderful marketplace for independent artisans.
I’ve had a crochet pattern store on Etsy for almost five years now (wooow, how time flies!) and I have to say that I have always felt so great for having that opportunity. It became clear to me from the very beginning that the people behind Etsy were fully dedicated to their job/mission and that their main priority was to bring the best services possible to both sellers and customers. They definitely strive for continues improvement.
And these days the Etsy folks have achieved one of their big goals which I think I should definitely let you know about (since many of you, dear readers and crocheters, asked me about this). To be more specific, up till now, if you wanted to purchase a pattern in my shop, the only way to pay was by using PayPal. But things have changed for better! Since Etsy has recently widened the group of countries where Direct Checkout is possible, my shop now offers all kinds of payment options including credit cards, debit/bank cards, iDEAL (Netherlands only), Sofort (Austria and Germany), Google Wallet, Apple Pay, even Etsy Gift Cards.
I know this might mean that some of you who were not able to obtain one of my patterns in the past will be able to do so now. And that makes me really happy.
