Etsy adds Android Pay to extend mobile shopping on its marketplace

Etsy, often seen as that quirky place you buy some homemade stuff, is growing up to become a niche marketplace competitor to Amazon and eBay.

Not anywhere near in size of those marketplaces, but enough niche competition that both have addressed highlighting or expanding their ability to sell homemade or unique items.

But Etsy is not standing still and have announced a core integration with Android Pay which will be rolling out over the next few weeks to sellers.

For buyers, the process is simple, they need an Android device with Android Pay and one supporting credit card. Once they are ready to pay, they just enter a PIN number, password, pattern, or fingerprint to finalize the purchase.

For sellers, you must accept payment through Direct Checkout and if you are in the U.S. and UK, you should see this option available shortly.
