One of the frequent questions I get from people is a form of “I’d like to pay using something other than Paypal. Can you provide a different way?”
The answer is, basically “Yes, but not yet.”
Most payment systems flip out if you do something like the pre-ordering setup I’m doing. And rightly so – there’s a lot of potential for fraud there, where the person has paid and shipments don’t happen for months. Even Paypal shut me down for 3 days when orders came in, with the words “pre-order” tripping their fraud systems and my having to argue with people by phone.
A lot of people don’t like Paypal, and I totally understand that sentiment – when things are small and basic, they’re smooth, but if anything happens out of their mystical internal boundaries, or which triggers off a random phrase, then you suddenly find out how inconsistent, weird and not a bank they are.
So once the GET LAMP documentary ships, a pile of new sale options will show up on the site. If you’re not able or unwilling to use Paypal, that will be your day.
And thanks for being patient.
