Who has had sales increase due to DC?

I'm interested in knowing if anyone has had an upswing in sales that they attribute to DC. Not just that some customers are using DC instead of PayPal, but that sales have actually increased.

my sales have been increasing all year, and I dont even accept DC, and dont even accept paypal any more.

i dont think anyone can really attribute an increase of sales to DC, unless many customers are actually telling them thats the reason they bought, and they wouldnt have otherwise
Wow - artisan - you don't even accept paypal any longer? Do you use google check out or anything like that?

How would you be able to tell if sales have actually increased due to it's use?

yea, just google now. I will also accept a USPS MO, or a bank transfer , if someone wanted.

I would like to use DC, but I am not activating it until etsy makes some serious changes with it
Thank you Artisan....that's exactly what I thought. Just because buyers are using the DC doesn't mean an increase in I understand it the DC is the default payment method to that would be the main choice of payment anyway.
i have not seen an increase in sales. and i didn't expect to.
Not me. Business was good with Paypal in both of my shops, and it's no different with DC. Sales have actually decreased slightly.
How would anyone know if their sales increased due to direct checkout? Just because a buyer chooses direct checkout, it doesn't necessarily mean they wouldn't have purchased using PayPal....
Perhaps a better question would simply be 'Are your customers using direct checkout?'

To that question, I would say 'Yes'.
