MASTER POST : NEW TRAINER ART DATAMINED!
KORRINA was found and so were the BATTLE CHATELAINE’S!
a while ago i reblogged a paypal tutorial with some extra info / warnings in the comments, but the site updated so i figured i’d make my own tutorial with all that extra info added in
- if you’re new to paypal, “Send & Request” is at the top of the page - click that and then select “Pay for goods or services”
- paypal says they will take a cut of the money when it gets to me but it’s only 2.9%, meaning anywhere from a couple of cents to a buck with the rates i usually charge. if you wanna be nice you can add that 2.9% in but i don’t expect people to and i don’t mind if you don’t
- MAKE SURE YOU SELECT “NO ADDRESS NEEDED”. if you select the other options paypal will think i’m shipping you physical goods and expect me to cough up proof that i did - and they’ll flag me if i don’t!
- as mentioned in the photoset, i need to be very careful about what people mention in the payment notes so that paypal doesn’t think i’m up to any fishy business and lock me down for it. all i need is for you to tell me who you are (tumblr / DA / FA account name etc) so i know who’s sending me what. if your blog name is ballslappingsex69.tumblr.com then consider using a nickname.
Always good reminders if you’re unfamiliar with how paypal works, because it’s so damn handy! That said, pretty sure trying to slap on charges to cover that 2.9% afterwards is against paypal policy and as the seller of whatever you’re expected to cover it. Adjust your prices accordingly BEFORE taking commissions/etc to account for it.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot after reading some fanfics and doing a headcanon blog but like I think it applies to everyone who wants to write characters in different cultural settings.
Something that throws me off really easily when reading fanfiction is when people aren’t aware of the cultural setting they’re writing about, it makes it hard for me to get into the story when I can’t believe the person is writing about Japanese people or that they live in Japan for example.
Anyways I have a lot of issues with it but I’ll talk about the two things that I find pretty straightforward.
