The main reason for selling our handmade items, although often not mentioned, is earning some money or in our case, making our income to live from.
So recieving our money safely is a very important factor when you sell online.
First that comes on mind is Paypal, but as you might know we had some issues with them, so we have been looking around to at least give another safe option to our customers, and maybe eventually even substitute Paypal.
The best option we found is MoneyBookers. I opened an account a while back but didn't add a bank account or credit card. When a few days ago someone purchased a bag and wanted to pay through MoneyBookers we finally had an excuse to make work of it.
The big bonus of MoneyBookers is the fact that they do NOT do chargebacks, which is a pain in the neck at PayPal. We now are mentioning in our shop anouncement and shop policies that we use MoneyBookers, hope many will slowly go to that direction so that Paypal changes it's attitude.
