Paypal Invoicing and Shipping Tutorial
Setting up an invoicing and shipping system will be a huge help as you grow your business. Whether you use Square or Paypal, be sure to set it up ahead of time. I recommend doing this before you even get your kit so you will have a way to invoice people from the start.
I have created a short tutorial on PayPal invoicing and shipping. It's the system I use and with which I am most familiar. One benefit to using PayPal (or Square) is that you can enter and save your customer's information and automatically pay for and print a shipping label after the customer has paid. It's a great way to get and stay organized, particularly when your business is booming
Tracking Sales & Invoices
I enter all of my sales as invoices in PayPal - even the ones I hand deliver. I just manually enter a payment to record when and how they paid me. I send the invoice to them before we meet and that helps clear up any issues (like, "oops, you forgot an item" or "hey, I only spent $10, let me buy some more!").
Super Simple Shipping
After the customer pays (if I'm shipping to them), I simply go back into the invoice, weigh the package (I bought a cheap scale on Amazon) and pay for shipping on PayPal. Then I print out the label, tape it to the package and voila!
You can also order a PayPal card reader that plugs into your phone so that you can take credit cards at home parties, festivals, etc. I'll be working on a tutorial for that at later date, but rest assured, it's super simple!
