billing & shipping
For payments, I use Square. It is the same program you would use if you bought from me in person using my phone (the little credit card reader). Upon ordering, you will need to provide your email and phone number and from there I will send you an invoice. In the email, there will be a button that says "Pay $X." You click it, enter your information, and it is sent to me. You will receive a receipt if you choose. If you would rather pay with check or cash, you can email me separately and I can arrange that.
why not Etsy?
I do have an Etsy shop and I do use it sometimes. But, selling on Etsy makes it more expensive for both you and me, especially with shipping. Etsy is limiting in its shipping options and you can end up getting overcharged.
Shipping is a tricky thing, especially with large items. To cut down on cost for you, I do offer the option to pick up orders from my home or meeting you halfway. This is only available if you are located near or within the green areas below.
I live in Crystal Lake, IL and go to school in Champaign, IL so I am near these locations often. I am willing to work with you on this since shipping charges can get expensive for large items.
If you are not in these areas, I will calculate the shipping for you and choose the most reasonable based on UPS, USPS, and FedEx.
