Please! What are you paying for? If it’s for an item that is physically being shipped to you, then by all means continue! But if it is for digital art, please reconsider!
This means that paypal is expecting me to ship a physical item to you! And the more times that I receive money for goods, and do not ship through them, the more it counts against me. Too many and paypal can elect to hold my funds for thirty days every time I receive them, until it reevaluates my account. Which means while the customer has their deserved art, I do not technically have money yet.
So PLEASE always send payment for digital art via SERVICES and not GOODS!
(you can get a refund if need be just as easily by selecting services as you can goods!)
I was actually unaware of this. D:
I don’t get many commissions so I haven’t encountered this
I wasn’t either, until it happened to me! As you get more commissions in the future you will see how much it happens, too.
“Too many and paypal can elect to hold my funds for thirty days every time I receive them, until it reevaluates my account.” I’ve also seen this happen to people whose commissioners use the “gift” option a lot to avoid fees.
I am officially going to Big Apple Ponycon in March! I will have partial table space in the marketplace, and I will be selling merch!
Which is why I need your help! Because this is the first con I’ve attended as a vendor, and I am going alone. I know there are some regular con-goers out there who could maybe give me some advice and recommendations, if they’d be so kind!
I am planning on selling buttons, prints, and posters, and doing sketch commissions. Should I make other things too? Stickers, keychains? How much of stuff should I make? Where is a good place to get prints and posters done up, and how many should I bring? Any other tips?
I’ve been reading the commentary people have added to the reblogs of my comic and I’m finding them really beautiful and honest and very, very familiar. There is a lot I wanted to add but didn’t have the energy to, and people seem to be summing it up well (please let me know if you’d rather I didn’t reblog what you’ve written)…
