I remember years ago when I could get a 'Buy Now' button from Paypal. Yes, it's been a while since I've tried to sell anything on Paypal. Anyway, it's now impossible, at least for me.
On my website, I posted several books for sale. All the books for conferences I've attended and came home from with left over inventory. Long story short (like that happens), my idea was to sell the books at a huge discount.
The nightmare began when I went online to Paypal. As I said, it once was easy to get the html code to Buy Now. Except now, it's pages upon pages of confusing html code, API, and any other terms along with a process that is impossible, at least for me.
I spent over an hour on the phone with a 'helper' from Paypal who couldn't figure it out either. Now what does that say about overly complex. I know she was reading from a 'how to' manual, which was absolutely not helpful. Now, I'm stuck with three boxes of various books and cannot sell them because it's become so complex.
Churches have their own bookstore with authors they prefer and my books (the fiction anyway) does not comply with their terms of acceptable. I write about Angels and demons.
Now, I'm going to try something different. On my for sale page, I plan to place all the books on sale for $6 + postage $4 and see if I can intrigue my visitors. Fingers crossed.
I'm a talker and always have something to say. And so, it stands to reason, I should turn my thoughts into stories.
