the last 2 digits? as in the security part on the back?

I don't know how those things work in the UK :-/
Does your card have the right logo on it? Check to make sure that it has a Visa logo or something else that watches what Etsy accepts.  That's all I can think of.

no, i mean the last two digits of the main credit card number (the long one). it says that they are 16 digits long, but mines 18.

Interesting! You'd have to ask somebody from your neck of the woods who also have Etsy.  Or ask Etsy themselves.

I know that to sell on Etsy you need to have a credit card. If I was to use the credit card almost exclusively for Etsy, what kind of credit card would be best to get? I've never had one before so I don't know what to look for, but I'd like one with very little to pay as far as credit card fees go. Like as long as I pay on time, no trouble, you know what I mean? I have a lot of recycled paper to sell and could make a lot more nice crafts, but I'd hate for credit card fees to take up all my profit! Any suggestions would be great!

I have a premiere account with Paypal, so I have a Paypal credit card.  I was using my bank card (it's a Mastercard Debit Card), but now that I'm unemployed, I didn't have any moolah in that account Cheesy

I find it easier to use my Paypal account because 90% of the people that buy from me use that as a payment method.  So I just turn the money right around and put it back into my Etsy Account Cheesy

Howdy all!

I've been busy working on an etsy plan recently. Today though, I went to begin to sell there and it asked for credit card information. Now the thing is.... I don't have a credit card. I've never had one, and hopefully never will (This is unlikely I am aware of that, but I still plan not to have one)

Is it even possible to sell there with a debit card instead? I mean, if not then that is rather sad, but It just means I'll have to pool my resources and get web designing again for a website.

Anyway, thanks in advance!

Peace and Love, Joy XXX

As long as your debit card has a visa/mastercard on it, it works as a cc.

I used paypal to get a debit card.

You can get a debit card from Walmart. It is Visa. That will work to open an Etsy account.

April_cocaine (Hello!  'tis a small world!) - I have the same problem with my debit card, I think it's because we're using British debit cards rather than American credit cards, I'm going to get a credit card sorted this summer and just keep that for etsy. 

I'm told you need to sign up with a credit card to become a seller, but after that you can opt to pay all your fees etc. through paypal and thus the debit card you've got linked to your paypal account.  I think the credit-card-to-sign-up thing is just to make sure you're not a scammer, since you're signing up from abroad?

As of yet Etsy does not accept Paypal to pay for your fees. Etsy will bill the credit card you have on file for them.

I may be a hopeless yarn addict but at least I dont share my needles.
