Marketplace Etsy ready to consider opening platform for Ukrainians - Ministry of Digital Transformation

KYIV. April 6 (Interfax-Ukraine) - The U.S. marketplace Etsy, where unique goods can be sold and purchased, is ready to consider the possibility of opening a platform for Ukrainians, the Ukrainian Ministry of Digital Transformation said on its Telegram channel on Wednesday.

The ministry also reported on the work to launch in Ukraine an international payment system with high-speed payment processing called Stripe. The National Bank of Ukraine and Visa are also involved in the dialogue with the Stripe team.

"This means that the company's launch on the Ukrainian market may speed up," the Ministry of Digital Transformation said.

The agency said it has already created petitions for both companies to launch a service for Ukrainians and continues talks with their management.
