How to Pay for a Commission
I made this page because there's been some confusion, and I hope this will help.
Remember: I only accept Paypal, and payment is in USD!
When you send an e-mail to me with your commission request, if I accept it and you agree with the price quote I give you, I will then ask for your paypal address.
Once you have given me your paypal address, I will then send you an invoice through paypal, and, once you accept, the money will transfer to me and I will start on the commission.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME MONEY DIRECTLY!
It is easier for me to organize payments when they are invoices. Most of the commissions I do are DIGITAL, and as such, when people send me money they may accidentally select to pay for GOODS which is physical. When this happens, Paypal is expecting me to SHIP something to the person who just paid me! I cannot ship anything when it is digital, so this causes trouble. It's easier for me to just get the money from you, than for you to send it to me.
Additionally, never EVER send money to artists via the "friends and family" option! This bypasses the paypal fee which can potentially get the artist's account frozen if paypal has enough to believe that you guys aren't friends!
If you send me money directly for a commission instead of waiting for my invoice despite the fact that I am very clearly saying not to do that here, I will refund it. IF YOU PAID ME THIS WAY and it says that your payment is pending, that is because the bank is processing your payment and my refund.
Your money is still yours, it will just take time to return to you.
This is a hassle for us both, so just let me handle sending invoices :---)
