I am loving direct checkout. It has increased my sales! And I love how the $$ goes to my own account. It has really become a saving tool for me! I know my customers appreciate the option of this as well!

I love the Direct Checkout option. I have been using it for about two weeks and have had no problems so far. I think I've actually had more customers with this option.
I still like PayPal as well, especially for shipping - it is all there (payment & shipping).
The shipping option was what was missing for me through Etsy until I read about the "shipping improvements" team - which I joined. Now that I've used the shipping through Etsy and I am loving it, too!
It is wonderful to have payment and shipping in Etsy - and the fun part is - the shipping label reads "Etsy"!
It would be cool if our shop name was under our return address - hint, hint.
Thanks so much for these improvements!

I love DC, and I see my sales increasing thru it.

However, I would like to have the option to include insurance when purchasing shipping label (perhaps there is a discussion about it, I need to look...)

Other than that, it is so convenient, and really, giving more options to buyers opens up new doors.
