Alternate Payment Processors Are Live

OK we’ve finally got some alternate payment options in place:  Oru and Uphold.

We’ve added a new Payment Options page to let you manage your choice of Payment Processors, along with some fairly detailed instructions for setting up each one. Please check those out carefully and add any that you want to your account.

Oru and Uphold will require you to login and ‘confirm’ the payment as soon as it’s received. You can do this with one click, but you do have to be ‘in contact’ and ready to act in a timely manner.

UPDATE! We’ve modified the process so all payments are provisionally approved when the customers clicks a confirmation button, so their AdCard Add-ons are live immediately. You can then check-in and confirm payments any time after that, and take necessary action if the payment was not received.

Changes To Your Dashboard:

To accommodate these updates, we’ve added a Recent Sales button to the Dashboard, so you can see at a glance if you have new orders that might need attention.

That will take you to a Sales Admin page, with options to Confirm, Reject or Hide any paid ads.

Plus you’ll find a link to the Payment Options page in the side menu, under ‘Your Account’, where you can set you payment processors.

There’s a fair bit of info on both those pages, so please look it over and follow the instructions to set up those options you wish to use.

One suggestion when adding payment processors, is to open your AdBoard and create an paid Ad so you get to the checkout… and can see how it all looks. We don’t have ‘buttons’  for Oru or Uphold, but if anyone spots any that look good, please send a link!

Still To Do…

We’re also setting up a short email follow-up series for your Advertisers who have selected Add-Ons but not completed a payment.

Still a bit of work to do on this, but I hope to get it up over the next week… so hopefully we’ll be able to get you a few more completed payments!
