The big news of the day is that we can now receive money via Paypal in South Africa! This should make life a bit easier for South African Etsy sellers and our customers.
We're not all Paypal-enabled yet, because bank accounts have to be opened and settings changed, but it shouldn't take too long. In the meantime, have a look at some of the things South Africans are selling on Etsy! Use the 'Shop Local' feature to search for shops, or the South Africa Etsy Team list.
