Etsy New checkout Coming Soon

Etsy is always improving the seller and buyer experience.  They have recently announce that they are releasing a new checkout system… Here are the details!

Hi everyone,
Checkout is one of the most important parts of Etsy. It’s the backbone that enables everyone to buy and sell all of the amazing, unique items that have made Etsy what it is.
In the past, there have been many pain points with Checkout. There have been requests, and there have been complaints. We’ve been listening.
I’m excited to announce we just started rolling out a new Checkout experience to a small percentage of Etsy visitors. The new Checkout addresses many common complaints and issues with the current Checkout.
—–Here’s an overview:
We retired the idea of committing to buy, so submitting an order is no longer separate from paying for the order. When paying with PayPal, you submit an order after authorizing payment at PayPal and items aren’t marked as sold until the payment is complete. We also removed the confusion created by entering a shipping address on Etsy and Paypal. When paying with PayPal, you enter the shipping address once at PayPal.
The current shopping cart can make it difficult for shoppers to feel comfortable making a purchase decision and proceeding to checkout. We made changes to improve that. In the cart, we include shipping costs and an order total, and we provide a space to write a note to the shop with any info needed to complete the order.
In the new Checkout, you can purchase from one shop without having to remove everything from your cart that you’re not ready to buy. We also streamlined inline registration so it’s easier for new members to check out.
—–And here are the details of the new Checkout:
When shoppers view their cart, their items are grouped by shop.
For each shop, shoppers see the following in their cart:
- the items from the shop
– space to write a note to the shop (similar to the old “Message to Seller”)
– a drop-down menu to choose their Ship to country
– choice of payment methods (depending on the shop’s preferences)
– an order summary with sub-total for items, shipping cost, and order total
– a Checkout button
In this version of Checkout, shoppers purchase from one shop at a time.
