If you haven't heard of google voice you should check it out for use as a business number and its free some people like to see they can call you. At least they don't see your home phone number.

Yep. It keeps your email from becoming bogged down with direct emails and is a way to fight spammers. That's what I like about Google Gmail. It pretty much sorts through your mail and puts the spam where it needs to be. In the spam folder. Mercy. I don't want to do this today. Didn't get much sleep last night. Wouldn't mind laying back down for a while. Can't do that because I have to operate the store.

Actually on Fridays, my wife takes care of the office while I'm in the shop. I really love doing it so the main thing is to keep myself busy so that I don't feel the tiredness. After I get the internet run through the flea market to my office out there, I should be available all of the time then. Oops. Got to run. Time to open the market.

ok that sounds like a good idea, I am set up with GMail as well so I might as well as try all the features that I can other then Checkout, will be adding that later when I convert my site to a premium site. DANG it though, had a couple of sales and did not even know, I was off the internet until just recently, saw quite a few emails at GMail concerning them. OH well, its a good thing that I did not know, the supplier was no longer available.

Saw Paymate but never heard of them so I went to PayPal which I have heard of, did not know about PayPal's Bill now pay later feature but I may not try that, scam artists can use that and then decide later not to pay the bill which would leave me holding the bag. :cry:

If they use paypal chances are they already know about pay later Paypal bought that company and they have the option on how to pay once they get to paypal.I was just mentioning it because if someone isn't familiar it may be a chance to get the sale without customers laying out the cash right away and you still get paid.But again just a suggestion.

We don't even want to get into the credit card chargebacks. With a credit card company, it's almost as though your rules and regs don't matter. They can do pretty much as they please and paypal lets them. But paypal is one of the easiest payment processors out there. And the easiest to get set up. But mercy.... they are just like ebay where the bottom line is in dollars and cents.
