Thank you Camilla, I’m not actually sure if I mind my phone number being public. I need to give it some thought. The number I gave was my landline and I’m hardly ever at home, so I would need to change it anyway, if I decide to leave it. I don’t want to appear to be inaccessible to a customer, but on the other hand I would much rather they contacted me by another method than a phone call.
It was more the way they said, as you were giving your phone number in a section quite clearly labelled that it would be visible to the public, ‘don’t worry, you can remove this later’ that was annoying me. It made me feel like they were not being completely straight with me. Anyway, I’ll wait to see if it’s on the bank statement, and then decide what to do.
My main issue is that I really like Stripe and have attempted to set it up to my Folksy shop a few times. Unless I’m missing something (which is likely), you can’t connect a Stripe account to more than one shop. They say you should open another Stripe account. You can use the same bank account for more than one Stripe account. I don’t mind doing this, but the two shops have to be different businesses with different names, and mine aren’t. So not sure what to do.
