    It looks like Etsy's payment system is still down. It has been almost a week with no end in sight and no explanation as to why the system is still down. :(

    Etsy is one of those excellent bastions of the internet in which you can find essentially anything you want to purchase homemade by a talented creator. Unfortunately, it's going through some very serious payment processing issues at the moment, and causing problems for merchants and customers alike. Over the last five days the e-commerce site has been experiencing third-party payment processing outages, with the issues stemming around 2 PM on July 1st.

    I've bought stuff on etsy. I like it conceptually. However, like most marketplaces it is turning into a virtual storefront for chinese manufactured products of sometimes questionable legality. It would not surprise me if their issues stem from that fact and people disputing charges.

    A week long payment processing outage. Wow. I'd think they could just switch to another processor on day one.
