My previous post
has had no reaction! No one has asked me about the payment scheme, thro a paypal button on the actual blog post, nor have any of the team working on it got in touch with me to help out/answer my questions……
I suppose I was a bit too ambitious – I should have started with an item of small value of which I have plenty, and which is so light that it can be posted for about the same cost to anyone anywhere!
Am having a think about that! Any suggestions?
In the meantime, the lantern remains unsold, and if you are in the UK and would like to buy it – you can still try out the paypal button. I will refund you if there are any problems with the system.
In the meantime, I have put up listings for two different lanterns – I only bought one of each
on etsy – click here to see it
and on ebay – click here to see it
I also have a couple that I haven’t listed yet – smile
Ever since WordPress announced that they had added a Payment Button to allow people to buy direct from a blog post, or allow Charities to take donations on a fixed page – I have been intending to try this idea out. Having tested it in a draft page, it seems that they have a long way to go to make it a totally useful service.
Has anyone had any experience with using it? I’ve tried contacting the team that were working on this project, but I haven’t had much luck in finding them. It probably works within very specific parameters, but I would like to find a way of selling some of my craft supplies directly, to any of my readers, whatever country they come from.
And there lies the problem – there is no facility for listing different postage rates for various countries.
SO – This listing will show the price, inclusive of postage, for UK readers only. You will need a Paypal Account to buy, as when you click on the payment button, it will take you straight thro to Paypal – altho you may of course use any credit or debit card.
UPDATE – 8 DECEMBER
I HAVE THE PAYPAL BUTTON OFF – TO AVOID CONFUSION – THE LANTERN IS NOW AVAILABLE AT MY ETSY SHOP.
I only have one of these for sale, so as soon as someone decides to take the plunge – I will try and make sure that the system doesn’t stay active!
I do have various other versions of these Lanterns, and some lovely gift items I’ve just got in, and will see how this works before I try selling any more items here – but you can find most of my stock for sale at my shop – julzcraftsupplies on etsy.
