Pickups and Dropoffs


Recommended Posts

When I first started I would do almost anything to make a sale.  Pickup's or Drop Offs were things I would say SURE to.  Last fall I did not do that anymore.  Was too busy and I know people wanted to save $8 for shipping but I just got tired coordinating a meeting time.  I would suggest going to one of the gift shops that carried my candles.


Well I made the mistake of saying SURE Saturday night.  Someone asked for 4 custom candles Saturday night and asked of they could grab them Sunday morning (Easter).  Sure.....  So I whipped them up Saturday night, messaged them Sunday and no response.  No sorry I will not be able to make it, Sorry plans changed.  Nothing.  Just a gentle reminder to myself to stop catering to everyone.


Order on my website, pay for shipping, and then they will show up to your door.  Yes $8 does seem like a lot of money that YOU can save,  but you get to custom order your candle and have it show up at your door and NO inconvenience to me.

That really sucks.


The only other way around that, besides not saying sure next time, is to add a custom order button on your website and have them pay for it when they order. That way you have your money before you even make it.
