February 2012 update: I’ve recently switched from typepad to wordpress so some links are being redirected to this page instead of my home page here. Also, I’ve not setup shop here, so for now, my patterns are available through etsy. Except for my rock collecting skirt pattern, which is now free here!
I love being part of etsy, and have been selling my patterns there for over a year now. One drawback to etsy, however, is that I have to send my patterns via e-mail after I receive payment. I check my e-mail frequently, and excepting purchases that occur in the middle of the night, I usually suceed in sending that e-mail within a couple of hours.
But I know the feeling of being so excited to get started on a new project and wanted a way to offer instant downloads to my customers so they don’t have to wait. The solution? E-junkie’s shopping cart. With e-junkie I’ve been able to setup shop with an instant download feature. Payment is made through paypal (so no credit card information is given to either me or e-junkie, just notification of payment is transmitted) and immediately after e-junkie sends out an e-mail with a secure download link. And you aren’t required to setup an account with either e-junkie or paypal (check out as a guest using your debit or credit card). Perfect!
So now that I’ve setup shop, I think it is time for a sale and a giveaway, don’t you?
~ Grand Opening Sale ~
First 10 customers will receive 50% off purchases.
Discount is automatically applied in shopping cart.
In addition, if you don’t happen to be one of the first 10 customers, buy two or more patterns and automatically receive 10% off at checkout!
And now for the giveaway! Your choice of any two patterns I have for sale. And you have three chances to win:
- follow me on twitter or become a fan on facebook and let me know in the comments here (if you’re already a fan, let me know that)
- post a link to the giveaway on your own blog, facebook page or twitter account and comment here with the link (if applicable–feel free to grab a picture for the purpose)
- and finally, since I’m a book lover, tell me the name of your favorite book (or your child’s favorite!) in the comments
Deadline to enter is midnight PST on May 31st. Winner will be annouced by noon PST on June 1st. Good luck!
