Thanks Folksy great news

This is great news , thanks Folksy. It now explains why I got the PayPal notification email before I got the e mail from Folksy. It definitely stopped me worrying about whether the customer would pay or not like my anxious wait last time.

Thanks Folksy. All worked ok for me on the order which popped in a few minutes ago.
Single email from Folksy with :slight_smile:

Well done! ??? has ordered your work on Folksy.

This email is confirmation that the order has been successfully paid for.

PayPal should also send you a confirmation email shortly.

Plus the Paypal email of course which arrived in the same minute.

Great news, Folksy! Looking forward to my first sale and it’ll definitely be easier now! :grinning:

(Minerva) #17

That is brilliant, indeed!

So, are we getting now 2 emails…1 from Folksy and 1 from PayPal?

(Joy Salt) #18

That’s what I got. but the Folksy one came after the payment had gone through.

Time will tell what happens to customers who have trouble paying as we won’t know about it as we won’t get the initial email …

PS Thought I’d be a customer with a paypal problem so signed out and then put one of my own angels into my basket then went to pay. There was a message about problems with Paypal payments to I clicked it and it took me to this page which was really interesting and hopefully covers things.

Being of a curious nature I did it again and filled in the form.
Hit enter and oops got this message, twice.

We’re sorry, but something went wrong.
If you are the application owner check the logs for more information.

Don’t think it’s the info on my form as it did complain when I forgot to tick the robot so no idea - maybe @folksycontent someone can check this out. I’ve just reported it to Support.

PPS Amusingly my angel just appeared on the front page as being bought now !

Ah ha someone has fixed something. When I did it first time I only needed to tick the robot to prove I was a person. This time I also had to choose river photos.
My form was sent. My order was placed (will have to cancel it in a minute).

> fyi I got these 2 emails - one from me as buyer, the other as a seller. Thought it would be of interest for everyone to know what the emails contain :

**1, Buyer :slight_smile: - this is what your customer will receive :
