I’ve shifted my efforts to online only and have a few PayPal
questions I’m hoping I can get some help on. I’m in the process of
adding a lot more product detail on my website (text, pictures,
drawings, video) with the intent of helping people be more
comfortable with a sight-unseen purchase. I’m offering a 30 day money
back on my “machine finish” designs, but my “hand finished” designs
are semi-custom/more work/more money requiring a down payment. I’m
sure for most customers there will be some email/phone back and forth
whereby I can clarify their exact payments they would manually make
to PayPal, but it would be nice if it were at least possible for a
customer to use “Down-payment"and"Final Payment” PayPal buttons.
Anyone done this or have thoughts on the matter? Also, regarding my
two “machine finish” designs- eventually I’d like to have inventory
within a range of half sizes (I don’t currently). I’ll build this
inventory by doing small runs each time I have an order for a
particular size or have spare machine time. Is a customer clicking
the “Buy Now” button expecting shipment within 24 hours or can I do a
"ships in 1-2 weeks" descriptor and be OK?
Thanks for your help and I apologize if this has been dealt with in
earlier posts (I couldn’t find any).
