Questions

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're having a great day ;o)
I have some questions for you ;o) Please answer ;o)

If you are purchasing at any online store, would it be easier for you, if they took credit cards and debit cards? Please answer honestly!

And, if a store is listed in their currency, say Canadian funds, and you are American, would this put you off on buying in their store?

I appreciate your honesty!!!

I will have new art to show soon ;o) When the sun comes out ;o)

Big Hugs ;o)

  1. I pay with everything via paypal rather than credit/debit card so that isn't an issue with me.
    The currency thing doesn't bother me either it's fairly easy to convert, I have XE currency converter saved on my favourites bar :) Although I do have my etsy shop listed in USA dollars as the majority of my customers there are American and most other countries know how to easily convert from that too.

    So there we go a 'Not fussed either way' from me Lol x x

  3. I prefer PayPal since it is safe and I have something to do if I do not receive what I bought. The currency does not matter - I am used to dollars and other currencies. If I do not know them it is really easy to find out using google :-)

  4. Hey Kiddo I shop on line and have for over 20 years. I use my CC but I love it when they offer paypal. For me it is easier. I will say that when I come across a foreign currency and it is a product I really want I simply email the owner and ask for the difference. Plus if they offer paypal the difference shows up.
    Hope that helps

  5. we use Pay Pal, if it says American currency only I will admit I am discouraged, (Canadian here, lol), We also shop online with credit cards but never debit cards, I think most people prefer PayPal, have a great day Stacy,

  6. Hiya, pretty gal. I use Etsy and it allows individuals to use credit cards, debit cards or PayPal. I also accept payments from customers directly from PayPal as well.

    As far as currency, I'm not sure how other online shops work but I think Etsy converts to what country one is logging in from.

    Hope this helps.

  7. I think you already know where I stand on this, but PayPal is my payment method of choice. As far as the currency thing, if it was something I wanted it would not put me off to convert to dollars to see how much it was.

  8. I usually use Paypal, because I don't have to get off my bottom and go and get my handbag and type in credit card numbers. I'm always relieved when I see anything takes Paypal. If it doesn't and it's something I really want/need, then I go credit card. I never use my debit card online.

    As for foreign currency, Paypal makes all that simple. So does a credit card, although they may have a fee for the transaction.

    I can see an argument for having credit card payments, particularly for pricey items or when people are making a lot of purchases, like Christmas.

  9. Hey chickie. I am fine with either paypal or my credit card (I never use debit) and I don't care at all what currency something is in. Hope that helps. :)

  10. Paypal is definitely preferable for me! It provides the convenience of credit cards without having to divulge card details. It also sorts out all the currency conversion stuff. Trust you're having a lovely, blessed weekend my friend :)

  11. Hi Stacy,

    I also use paypal for everything and if I need to use a credit card on Etsy I use it through paypal!

    It doesn't matter what currency as I have a currency converter bookmarked!

  12. When I'm buying online, I prefer to use PayPal because it protects my private credit card info from the seller. I don't mind buying something in another currency if I have a rough idea what the exchange rate is. But if I don't, I won't risk it in case the item ends up being way more than I would want to pay for it.

  13. I prefer paying with PayPal so if that is not one of the options I very likely won't buy anything. I don't mind the currency but it's great if the site has currency converter so I can check how much it is in euros. :) Hope it helps. Good luck with your new endeavor.

  14. anyway you want if credit cards are easier for you, I would pay that way, if you preferred paypal, I would pay that way....if you wanted cash i'd make sure the envelop was very well padded, honestly lol

  15. Hi Stacy, Personally I like debit and pay pal cards. As far as currency conversion, as long as I know the right price that is all that matters.

  16. I prefer my credit card through Paypal and would love to see US prices listed when it's another country.I know there are conversion charts but if ordering who wants to look one up? Hugs

  17. I'm about half and half, sometimes cards and othertimes paypal. I don't mind about the currency, if I like something I'm quite happy to look up a converter if the store doesn't convert it automatically x

  18. I think the only way people in the US buy things these days is with credit cards and online Paypal is the way to go. Even in my brick and mortar business I hardly get cash anymore it's all credit and debit cards.

  19. I prefer to keep it simple with paypal but I will buy with my debit card. I tend to stay away from other currencies not knowing how to go about getting my money transferred online. It worries me a bit...but only because I'm not sure how it works and wonder if the seller does not know as well. That's where my concern lies. I would think a "contact seller" button if from a foreign country would help ease my mind and then we could chat about it and possibly have a sale.

  20. Hi Stacy! When I shop online I use either my debit card or Pay Pal. As for the currency, honestly, it would deter me a bit...make me think a little longer, which might not be a bad thing. lol But, If I really want something badly enough, it won't bother me. Like others said, it's easy to Google and find how to convert it.

  21. Hey Cutie: When shopping online, I use both Paypal (which I prefer) but will also use a credit card. If the price is in another currency, I do the leg work and find out the conversion, I don't mind. If it is something that I want, I'll figure it out.

  22. I prefer using paypal v. credit card. Currency doesn't matter to me, but would be nice to be able to easily translate to my local currency

    ReplyDelete
  23. Neither would phase me the slightest. If I want something, I get it (providing I have the funds to do so :)

    I am debating accepting credit cards in my Etsy store.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Actually, I prefer PayPal but if I were to have a second choice it would be to use a debit or credit. Another country currency is fine with me as long as there is a clear conversion rate. Now my sister Izzy is strictly a debit/credit card gal and I'm sure there are several others who like that idea. Hugs sweetie. Mina

  25. If I want it I figure out whatever it takes :)
    I only use prepaid credit /debit gift cards online.
    Hope the sun shines for you soon :)
    Hugs and more hugs :))

  26. I would like the option of credit cards and debit cards. I, sometimes, forget to transfer money to my PayPal account, so... yeah. If I have to wait 3 workdays for the money to get there (I'm too cheap to pay for instant transfer *cough, cough*) I might lose the item to someone else, or might forget to go back to get it.

    On the currency bit, it wouldn't bother me. But it would be nice if the website offered a conversion tool. Most of us can just use Google, but there is a percentage of the population who might not.

    Ease and choice guarantees more sales, methinks.

  27. I'm happy to buy when in a dif currency but I do know from my own website that people like to have their own currency listed but not sure how complicated this gets and yes def need to accept cred cards xx

  28. Most everyone trusts and likes using PayPal...myself included. I don't like to spread my debit or credit card info to too many places! This is a decision that works for me. As far as currency...I like to know in American money...mainly because I am lazy and don't want to look it up :) Seriously though...it might make me look elsewhere for something in my own currency~~~

    Big Hugs,

  29. Hi Stacy,
    I prefer to pay with Paypal as often as possible online to keep my credit and debit cards safe. Some people feel vulnerable using Paypal and would prefer to use credit or debit. Probably the best thing is to offer to accept all. :) A foreign currency does not bother me at all.
    I hope you have a great week!

  30. Hello kindred..yay..looking forward to your new pieces soon! I use paypal so far..not much else experience I could share! Hope you find the answers you need! Best wishes!

  31. Typically I use paypal online, but I've used the card directly on occasion. I do prefer prices in U.S. currency (just lazy I suppose), but I don't think I would be very put off if it were in Canadian currency...

  32. I would definitely go with PayPal. They can figure out currency from other countries and they are also extremely reliable, secure and easy! I wouldn't mind what currency a product was for sale in as long as I could figure out the cost in US dollars for me. Hugs!
