Normally when receiving a payment from a buyer etsy only lets me know who the payment came from. They don't give me any other particulars outside of the transaction. I set up different PayPal accounts for different shops. Before I was banned I had two different Paypal accounts for two different etsy shops. I use them now for my ebay shops while I set up a new one for the stealth etsy account and everything is working out.

UPDATE: I just contacted PayPal and was advised that if you have a business account they only refer to your business name when it comes to transactions with other companies. They will only use your real name when communicating with you. My advice would be to set up a business account which is free whether you decide to use stealth PayPal or not.

I just pay my fees with random prepaid visas. But, it's good to know there are options.

Just so everyone knows, when etsy says "we may check your info with a 3rd party", they mean "we WILL check your info with a third party". There is NO way around this. etsy direct checkout is EXACTLY like using a merchant account...I sure as heck don't know of anyone who has used stealth info to open a merchant account and gotten away with it. etsy is likely required by federal law to verify all info you send them to open DC.

guys

just an update,

i am still waiting for etsy to verify my ID for DC on my stealth account.

as it has been three days i decided to open another stealth account.

- new name
- new address
- new bank
- new everything
- etc

- linked a vcc for the credit card bit for fee paying

went through the steps, set up DC, and they are not asking me for any ID and have set up around 2-300 listings.

Praise the lord.

Business could be back on track?

maybe the address looked better , dont know.

Cheers all.

Keep trying.

This is UK by the way.

UK is different, I envy you!

For everyone who has the option (in the USA), I suggest using DC for safe, uncontroversial items that won't get you booted, and stealth accounts for everything else. Cause you only get one go at DC over here.

Wow, what the hell happened? UK is a piece of cake?

I don't want to here any more ste/alth complaints about Et/sy then. I don't know how it could possibly get any easier than being able to use a private payment processor and not even having your identification verified.

Haha, but, we must see how long this lasts before anyone gets too excited about selling in the UK. Who knows...they could ask for verification the minute you try to move the money to your bank account.

Lol unknown never said it was a "piece of cake". But it appears that DC is possible in the UK with stealth and it is 100% impossible in the USA. Don't blame people for trying to set it up, it really is a huge chunk of sales for those who have it, I don't begrudge them.

ovidiu, do you think etsy's third party check with my wife's last four digits of her ssc will pull up our home address which was used for our banned account? I used my ssc with the banned accounts. I know how huge those DC sales can be first hand. If I can't use it, then I'm thinking the multiple accounts I set up will make up for the lost profits some. Before I was banned I only stuck with a couple of accounts because business was booming.

Default Re: Stealth Etsy - Direct checkout.

I opened a Direct Checkout on Etsy last year. They did not ask me to provide any ID but they did ask me to fill in the form with the exact name that was on the bank account. The verification took about 3/4 days (all the info was 100% genuine).

So I guess you would need to open a new bank account etc.

With regard to paying Etsy bills once you have DC you can use funds in your DC account (rather than Paypal) to pay their bills, as well as another registered credit or debit card. In fact this option is first on the list.

Organizations like Paypal and Etsy cant ask for your SSN in the UK. However they could (as I believe Amazon now do) as for your tax ID if you want to register as a company.

Dcbshowstopper,

they run a deep search like if you were to apply for a bank account or merchant account. All info is verified and you can't fudge it.

Gotcha, thanks. I guess we're stuck with just PayPal for the time being, then.

That's excellent. We see it can be done overseas, now we have to figure out a way to get it done in the U.S.

Not to bring up an old thread.... But you must have a unique pp per stealth Ets.y - When the payment completes thru PP your merchant token is revealed to Ets.y - this token is unique to your ACCOUNT. Thus, using the same PP account will link your Ets.y accounts.

This is tried and true and for certain.

Well since, DC appears to work for UK with stealth... Whos to say it doesnt work then in Canada, Germany and more..... which begs the question, Does your bank account have to be in the same country as "you" Per the rules it just says you must have a bank account in one of the listed countries.

For instance, PP allows CA accounts to use a US bank. whos to say Ets.y doesnt do the same. Does a stealth CA PP circumvent a requirement for ssn or tid# over 20k. Why yes it does...

Default Re: Stealth Etsy - Direct checkout.

I have recently opened another shop on E--y with a stealth account - its always as well to have a shop in reserve.

I used my nephews bank account, debit card and address/name details. I know this is not advised but he has no intention of ever selling anything online and certainly not on E--y.

During the setting up process I got one of the bank details slightly wrong and it seemed to know right away so I stopped the setup and did it again when he was with me. It went through immediately.

I had got the sort code (routing number) wrong. These numbers are instantly checkable in the UK. If you go to make a payment to another bank account with incorrect details it immediately bounces back to you account and shows up as "failed payment to XXX"

I pay the shop fees with money thats in the shop account and of course all the money goes into HIS bank account or Payal account. However as I already pay him for certain jobs he does for me (accounts, techie stuff) thats ok. If there is an excess he transfers it back to my bank. We have one anothers bank details anyway.

Needless to say I dont log into the shop from my normal ISP (Im on BT Business) I use a T Mobile dongle. I also have a machine with Firefox set to delete all cookies when I end a session.

Deleting cookies and using your relatives info is not really stea.lthing. But, if that's working for you, oh well.

macbook,thank you! I was going to use pp from banned account,just different email address!
For paying selling fees I think you have to give cc not just pp,no? I guess vcc works though.
Does DC really increase sales? Almost anyone can pay with pp.
