Marketplace Etsy delays payments to sellers after the bankruptcy of Silicon Valley Bank.

The popular US marketplace for small businesses, Etsy, is delaying payments to sellers after the bankruptcy of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). The company's main partner accounts were set up with SVB as part of a long-term contract with the bank, which are now inaccessible due to the financial organization's collapse.

Sellers on the platform reported being left in the dark about the situation. They are now unable to receive planned payments and are concerned about the future of their shops.

Etsy has promised that the platform will begin payments to sellers through other payment partners, with some delayed payments processed by March 13.

Many small business owners with shops on Etsy rely on income from selling handmade items on the platform, and the absence of planned payments may make it difficult for them to cover expenses related to their craft.
