PAY BY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD OR PAYPAL THROUGH ETSY
I use the shopping site Etsy to process payment and orders. It’s an online marketplace, similar to Not On The High Street, for art and collectibles. It’s totally secure and makes it really easy to see what work I have available. It’s also very simple for me to upload photos of new and one-off pieces.
You’ll need to register with the site. This is quick and easy to do. Payment for purchases is through PayPal OR by credit/debit card.
You can set the prices to appear in your local currency quite easily. Sign in to Etsy, go to Your Account > Settings > Preferences and choose GBP etc.
I currently offer a 10% discount on my Open Edition range of bronze sculpture to mailing list members. You can join up and get the discount instantly. When you add an item to your basket look for Apply shop coupon code directly under the PayPal, VISA and Mastercard logos. Click on it and type in the code ‘SIGNMEUP’.
To pay you have to click the button ‘Check out with PayPal’. Don’t worry if you don’t have a Paypal account, it will give you the option to log in to PayPal OR pay with a debit or credit card. Enter your card details. If you don’t want to create a PayPal account click ‘No thanks’ then submit your order.
Use the shop sections on the left hand side to navigate around different categories of my work.
