    etsy people again - sorry about all the questions

    Ok - thanks to all the people who formerly answered the etsy questions but I have one more. I have spent a lot of time trying to get set up and such but I still can't seem to find a good answer for how I get paid. I realize that you register for paypal and stuff but exactly how do you get paid when an item sells. I guess more specifically, does paypal just put money on a credit card or do they actually send you a check or money order or something. Thanks so much again in advance.

    Got to paypal.com and read up on how you get the payment. You can link your paypal account to your bank account.

    I have mine set up that I can transfer the money into my bank acct. Usually, I just leave it in paypal and use that for my sewing spending. You can request a check, but there is a fee. I can't remember how much it is.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    You have to pay taxes according to your state correct? Unlike ebay.

    Why would you think etsy and ebay are different regarding taxes? The same rules apply no matter where you're selling.

    I have a paypal debit card. But generally you can pay for things with your paypal account and spend your money that way.

    Buyers on etsy pay directly into your paypal account. and paypal takes their fee directly out of this account. Etsy only uses paypal. You can have this account tied to your checking account or credit card. You can transfer out money from paypal to your bank anytime on line but it takes several days to get to your bank account. You can also transfere money INTO your paypal account but that to takes several days to get into you PP account but of course it comes immediately out of your bank account or CC. Paypal sends you a email stating that money has been deposited into your account so this is one way that you knbow that you have had a sale.
