View Full Version : My First Order Already!!

03-09-2006, 02:16 PM
I'm so excited, I have my first order already and I haven't even received my first COTM yet!

Now I have a question about payments, please can someone help, I think Jennifer is busy today.

How do you all take out of state payments?

Do you have them mail you a check?

I have paypal, is anyone familiar with taking payments that way? Or do you have to have a business account set up with them?

Thanks in advance!

I have shipped a few out of state and used paypal to take payments. I don't think you need a business account unless the person is useing a credit card to pay. I do have business account and the fee is not too bad. Just make sure you know how you are going to ship the candle and how much it will cost. I only charged $5 and it ended up being $8.

Yes I ship out of state all the time. I use paypal, if they want to send a check I am fine with it, but of course I don't send order until payment is cleared. People can pay with echecks as well, but once again make sure its cleared. I have the biz acct on paypal as well to accept cc for customers.

Congrats on your very 1st order!!smileys/smiley32.gif

I also use PayPal's business account set up so I am able to accept credit card payments. I've not had a problem with it yet!
