A Holiday Checklist Worth Checking Twice
We all know the lyrics to the age-old winter tune, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town. “He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice.” A classic. And also useful.
Preparing for the craziness that is the holidays, a list can be a great way to remember all the small things you have to get done. Like making sure your Redbubble shop is set up for smooth sailing. If you’re in search of a bit of assistance with just what to add to your list, look no further.
Here are 4 things to review in your profile this holiday season.
Thinking about payment details can be a bit dry and uninspiring, but it’s such a crucial piece of this holiday-themed pie. Let’s dig in.
If you’ve chosen to use direct deposit, great. Check to see that you have the right routing number and the exact name associated with the account. Routing numbers for wire transfers are no bueno. Translation: not good. You can look into this with your bank for the correct info.
If there have been any changes recently to your account, put your Type A hat on to review and update your Redbubble settings.
In case you missed it, ACH direct bank deposits are only available for Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. If your bank is not in these countries, for now, try connecting to a verified Paypal account.
Something worth noting is that you can’t change the currency once selected. So, choose carefully.
First things first, triple check that your Paypal account is verified, not locked or inactive, and fully set up.
Also, you may need to follow a few country-specific guidelines for Paypal accounts. You can check with Paypal support for any further questions on this topic.
Another piece of info to give a once-over is that your email address for Paypal matches precisely with what you entered in your Redbubble payment details. The easiest way to advert a headache later.
