Goodbye Etsy.

Well, I have to say that I'm a little baffled by Etsy's new payment policy, but it's just too darned complicated for me to even consider signing.  I don't want my personal bank details to be used and I don't have a business account, so the sensible option has always been Paypal. But now Etsy has decided that this isn't enough and I would have to apply for an account using my personal details, which it would appear can be shared with 3rd party providers, which is an instant no, no!

So that's it then, I'll be back to reorganising my website and selling from Facebook, which to be honest has had more sales than Etsy! 

So you can check out my Facebook page here  Oakmoonstudio  although, there isn't a lot on there, because as I've said before, I'm moving house and that's taking priority at the moment.  Stay with me though, as things are going to get interesting ;)

Such big changes in your life! I feel it's for good! You are a brave woman, Kim!
The paintings are wonderful - it's great that you find time for art!
Bon voyage!

Gosh, I wouldn't trust that system. I really don't trust any site that needs your bank account information!

Thank you

I agree Rain, it's a strange way for them to go and isn't helpful to small businesses!
