How to order: Paypal and other options
Use the PayPal buttons throughout our site
for the fastest and safest way to purchase our Products or your
HowToConsign.com Sponsorship. You DO NOT need a "PayPal
account" at any point to order on TGtbT.com. Please note: If you use an e-check with Pay Pal, your order will be delayed by Pay Pal for days until your check clears. That's their policy, not mine.
Why PayPal? I wanted a payment service that both you and I could feel comfortable with and trust.
Making a purchase with the PayPal Shopping Cart is safer and more secure for you since you never
give me your credit card number.
Signing up for a PayPal account is totally optional. Signing up really only means that PayPal saves your information for future purchases.
If you don’t like that idea, just take the “use credit card”
choice and PayPal simply becomes TGtbT's credit card service provider for
your transaction, like you might use Xcharge or Cynergy in your shop. It is not necessary to have a PayPal account to purchase our products
even though we use PayPal to process our payments. They accept all types of payment without the need to open an account.
How Does the Shopping Cart Work?
While you’re shopping on our site, you will be using a safe and secure PayPal page as your Shopping Cart. The Shopping Cart allows you to purchase multiple items at the same time without having to enter your personal information over and over. When you click on the "Add to Cart" button next to the item, you will see your selections on a secure page hosted by PayPal.
You can delete any item at any time, so go ahead and create a
"wish list" by clicking on things you think you want. Once on the Shopping Cart page, click “continue shopping” to go back to my site. You can review your shopping cart by clicking another "Add to Cart" button to purchase another item, or by clicking on any of the "View Cart" buttons on our shopping page. When you’re ready to check out, review what you’ve ordered in your Shopping Cart, then click “check out.”
It’s important to verify, if you are a PayPal member, that the email and physical address you have on file with them
current and correct. It’s easy to forget to update these. Your order can only be sent to your address of record, so check that it’s right!
If you're still a bit nervous shopping online, check out the URL of the Shopping Cart page and you'll see that it's a secure (beginning with https) PayPal URL window.

using just your credit card. PayPal

Kate replies: Many
shopkeepers benefit from seeing alternate ways of doing things. While the
systems you already have in place may work well enough, it is always an
eye-opener to examine other viewpoints. There may be whole areas that
you haven't considered, or you may be doing things which, while they
worked years ago, don't maximize today's investment in time, effort, and money.

Kate replies: 99% of the info in the Manual will apply to

will have to mentally substitute (for example, our suggested floor
plan shows where to put tops, coats, etc., and you might have to think
about dining room sets or ski poles or crystal vases) to suit the
