This is a tip I discovered when I started my second Etsy shop of Wedding flowers shop, www.AmoreBride.etsy.com. (my first shop is www.AmoreVivo.etsy.com) A high percentage of my visitors there are very new to Etsy. I noticed that they would purchase from me, but didn't complete the payment process. New sites can be confusing for the first time consumer, so now in my announcement I have a link explaining the complete payment process. I even am testing it in some of my listing descriptions. This is what I use, feel free to copy it, or add your own wording:
If you're NEW to Etsy, here is a helpful link to guide you through checkout: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php
Good luck, and happy continuous sales!
