Voluntary donation for sales

Postby jhagee » Thu Jul 08, 2010 9:36 am

This is for those of you that don't have a regular business, but use the Trading Post regularly to buy or sell.

1. That when you find Frontier Folk a good place to sell items.

Considering that:

2. Frontier Folk has grown quite a bit in the past few years and can be very time-consuming. We now have over 3,500 registered users. (Multiply the times some of you have contacted me for help with passwords, logon issues, avatars, etc. times the several hundred active people on the board - not to mention ongoing server costs, technical issues, moderation, spam attacks, etc.)

3. Not to belabor the point, but the current recession has hit me as hard as some of you (laid off 5 times since 9-11) and a little extra would go a long way in paying off some bills. And extra income means more time spent working with the board, less time working part-time jobs.

I would like to request that you consider making a 5% donation to Frontier Folk from your sales.

There are some that regularly volunteer to do that and I very much appreciate the thoughtfulness. And not to worry about small items or feel you have to keep up to the minute on any sale.

If you are interested in doing that, I am on Paypal, you can make a free personal transfer, my email account is jhagee@frontierfolk.net. If you would prefer a check, email me for details.

Instead of by sale, you may want to send something monthly or whatever is most convenient for you depending on the amount of sales you make.

This is not enforced, it's up to you. I won't be keeping a tally of sales or nagging anyone, it's an honor system and totally up to you to decide if FF has been helpful to you and if you want to help support FF.

Thank you,

Jon

P.S. Feel free to ask me questions here or by email.

Sounds more than reasonable enough Jon.

Thanks Pink.

I was hoping that making this voluntary would get a sufficient response. Let's see how it goes.

When I receive the funds for the Shawn Webster quilled strap and horn, I will send you 5% as suggested. To what paypal account should the funds be directed? Thanks, Paul W. Jones
