You can still use Etsy as long as your credit or debit card is in your name. Accepting PayPal can be one of the best things for selling online as a lot of people are iffy about mailing checks to people they don't know.
Your option if you're unable to use PayPal is to close your current checking account and start a new one--you'll get all new account and card numbers so you can make a fresh PayPal account.
