How to pay via PayPal

Hi guys! Quite a few of you are interested in my bracelets which is awesome. For anyone living a bit of a distance away the easiest form of payment is via PayPal. That being the case I thought it would be easier to put together a little guide on sending money in for those of you who are unsure.

OK so once you have logged into your account, along the top you will see a button called “Send and Request”. Click on this button and it will open a page giving you 4 options. The option you will need here is the left hand one, “Pay for goods or services”. Please select this one and I will cover the PayPal charges.

The next screen will have a box to enter an email address or phone number, which is the account you are sending the money too. So if you are buying one of the wristbands for example, you need to put my email address in which is

Next to this you will see a box titled “Amount”, this is the amount of money that you want to send. If you check the “Wristbands for sale!” article for p&p costs, and add these to £1.50 per band you want to buy, then enter this amount into the box. So for example if you want to buy 2 bands and live in the UK, then it will be 2 x £1.50 + £0.86, giving you the total of £3.86 to send.

The little button next to the amount is the currency: please check that this is set to GBP – more so if you are ordering from overseas! Underneath this is your address which should already be filled in. If you check this and click “Next”.

The next screen is a summary of the transactions, here you can add a little comment if you like, before pressing the blue “Send” button at the bottom.

And then you’re done! I hope that was straight forward and useful. Thanks for your support as always.
