    Etsy Purchase Question

    Can anyone give me some insight on the website Etsy and if it is secure to buy stuff off of there?

    I am looking at buying some things for tailgating and want to make sure that it is secure enough to buy stuff off the website.

    Thanks

    I have purchased 10+ items from different people. Each time I check out I do it through paypal as a guest. Basically you use paypal's credit card system and it credits the etsy seller. Zero issues. Great website. I say go with it.

    I've purchased there once and had no issue. If the seller has good feedback, you're fine.

    Read the feedback, but I have had no issues. I've purchased from multiple sellers for a variety of items. Like previous comments, it all goes through PayPal.

    Re: Etsy Purchase Question

    Same story as above posters. I've made several purchases on Etsy via Paypal and I've received everything promptly and as advertised.

    Re: Etsy Purchase Question

    I buy tons of crap through Etsy. Same as PPs, just use the Paypal function. Try and only buy from people with positive feedback.

    It's a nice way to promote small businesses while sitting on your butt.
