Sorry that I am not providing you with information about a Japanese garden today.. But this might be interesting as well!
As you might know, Real Japanese Gardens is writing short guide books for Japanese gardens in Japan. We also have a small collection about the elements and plants used in these gardens.
Until now we sold them via Payloadz, which made it necessary to have a PayPal account.
On Gumroad it is still possible to use the PayPal account as payment method, but our customers can now also use credit cards. I think this is a good step forward on our goal to let more people know about the beauty of Japanese gardens!
For all people new to Gumroad I will now give a short explanation on how to use it! (Although it is really easy!)
When visiting our website, click as usual on the red button.
The Gumroad page will open in a new window.
In the address line you can see that it is a ssl secured website. This will not change until everything is finished!
Scroll down to the the description and the “Buy” button.
You can set a price you like.
Minimum for garden guides is 1.95$ and 2.50$ for explanations, elements and plants.
Just enter the price you like via your keyboard.
When clicking the “Buy” button, a new window will open where you can enter your payment information.
It is of course a secured page.
In the yellow arrow you see the minimum price for the product. Above the final “Pay” you see with how much your card will be charged.
Gumroads has volume limits with their payments processor. From time to time the option to buy with PayPal might disappear. But they promised to fix it.
After the purchase you will get a download link per mail.
When clicking on it, this window will open.
The download starts automatically but you can also download it manually.
When creating an account on Gumroads, you will be able to see your products in the library whenever you want. You can also use their app to read eBooks on a mobile device or on your computer! But an account is not necessary!
I hope you find the new process as easy as I do!
With this small change comes another one, but I will explain that one in another blog. Stay tuned!
