  • etsy and credit cards

    I'm about to start selling on etsy and wondered if anyone could recommend a credit card to use, I know its hard to believe in this day and age but I have no credit card. I know I could use my debit card but I want to keep that separate from my dealings on the internet.

    Much safer to use a credit card online than a debit card anyway..
    Find a 0% interest deal, take a look at http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/cards/ to find the best deal for you. This is the website of Martin Lewis, the guy who is currently doing a channel 5 show, I've found it really useful.

      Thank you typ, it is also a concern as to what type of credit card they accept, is it only master card or visa or could I use a tesco or natwest one ? I'm sorry if this sounds odd but I truely don't undestand about the various types of credit card. I don't want to get one and find out its the only one etsy won't accept !!

        Well, I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure most cards are either Visa or Mastercard ie. if you get a Tesco card, it will most likely have a Visa symbol on it. I think you'd be hard pushed to find one you can't use. If you are only getting a card to put your etsy fees on, and you intend to pay the card off at the end of each month, I wouldn't worry too much about what card you get, it's only if you intend to keep a balance on it that you should try and apply for one that promises low or 0% interest, so you don't get whacked with a load of charges. If it's any help, I have an Egg card and (despite their recent bad publicity!) it's very easy to manage online, and I can see, at any time, how much my Etsy bill is and then transfer money from my current account to the card. I don't think it's as complicated as you think it is..? Just pick a big name card - Egg, MBNA, Tesco, Natwest, HSBC.... there are zillions... you can find lists on the link I gave you, or Google '0% credit card'... and apply.
        Hope that rambling is of at least a little use!

          If you are going to be paying it off in full each month then I wouldn't worry about looking for one that gives you the best deal interest wise as it's not going to matter. I would look for ones that give you incentives to be with them. When we got our Tesco card we got a whole load of points which was equal to about £30. The previous poster was right though about going to Money Saving Expert - he's fab.
