I thought a little bit of information about ordering from my new website might be handy. If you’re familiar with my old site, you’ll know that all transactions came to me by email and I processed payments locally. With the launch of the new site, I’m happy to say that ordering is much faster and more secure. All payment processing is now done through PayPal, although you don’t need a PayPal account to buy. Here’s the lowdown on how the new ordering system works.
The Shopping Cart
When you go to the detail page for any item in my galleries (by clicking on the title for the item) you’ll see all the different product that is available of that particular image. For instance, some of my artwork is available in note card form, some paintings are offered in multiple print formats and for some paintings, the original is available for sale. Simply click on the button under the specific item you want to buy. You can then continue to browse the site. When you’ve completed your browsing and shopping, just click on the “Cart” link on the main menu at the top right of all the website pages. This will show you what you’ve purchased and give you the opportunity to make any changes to your order. When you’re ready, simply click on the “Checkout with PayPal” button on your cart page to complete the process.
This website uses PayPal for all payment processing. I’ve chosen this method for several reasons. The most important one for you is that your payment information (card numbers, etc.) is never shared with me or stored anywhere on my site. It also isn’t sent my email. That means that your information is securely handled by a payment processing system that’s been trusted for almost 2 decades! It also makes transactions much easier and faster.
Here’s how it works: When you click on the Checkout button, you’ll be transported to my secure PayPal checkout page. If you have a PayPal account, you can enter your login information there to use your PayPal account to complete the purchase. If you don’t have a PayPal account or prefer to use a different payment method, just click on the “Pay with Debit or Credit Card” button at the bottom of the form. When you’ve completed your purchase, you;ll receive a confirmation notice/receipt from PayPal and you’ll be returned to my website. I’ll process your order as quickly as possible when I receive it.
Shipping charges are calculated by PayPal and added to your order when you check out. At this time, the only option offered is Ground shipping (2 to 7 days for delivery). The shipping rate is based on the total amount of your purchase and here’s how it’s calculated:
|$0.01 – $25.00||$3.00|
|$25.01 – $75.00||$7.00|
|$75.01 – $150.00||$13.50|
|$250.00 and up||FREE|
My shipping rates are calculated for locations within the United States of America. Orders from other areas won’t be processed by PayPal. If you’re ordering from outside the US, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can provide you with the correct information.
