Welcome, Summer! Welcome, Direct Checkout!

Well, its the first day of summer.  It certainly feels like it here on MV - it's soooo hot and sticky!  Even my cats don't seem to want to go play outside.  Everyone is lazy and sluggish in the heat, and tomorrow will be even hotter!

And along with summer, something new and exciting has come to my shop!

Announcing the arrival of Direct Checkout at Beach Plum Cottage!  You no longer have to use PayPal to make a purchase from my store - I accept credit cards directly.  Easy Peasy!

In celebration of summer and Direct Checkout, I am having a BIIIG sale - Use coupon code: LETFREEDOMRING for 15% off your entire order from now until July 4, 2012.  Enjoy summer everyone!  :)


  1. It's hot and sticky here too! I like PayPal above all, why use Direct Checkout? Isn't is safer with PayPal?

    2. Kristina - Many people, my father included, don't like or don't trust Paypal. I think this is an old idea he has from past experiences in the 90's, but Paypal has changed in recent years.

      I think you are right, PayPal is very safe and usually sides with the buyer.... but this is simplified. Now people only have to log in to Etsy to make purchases, and it goes straight from Etsy to my bank account. Cuts out the middle man, so to speak.
