Hello fellas

I'm here writing you guys because i need to consult with you guys and my future clients on something.

Paypal has been giving me trouble for awhile now.
Since i am from brazil i cannot directly withdraw my paypal money to my bank account and that has been causing all kinds of trouble for me.

The option i'm currently considering is closing my paypal account so i can accept WESTERN UNION payments.
Western unions has a association with the bank where i have an account and i'll get the money directly from you guys.
The process is actually quite easy as long as you have a credit card.

Paypal has some really dishonest ways sometimes and it's beginning to worry me because since i am in Brazil i cannot just go to their offices and say "hey you bastards, what are you trying to do ?"

Another potentially bad news for you guys is that i'm going to increase the prices of my comissions because the Real's value(brazilian currency) has decreased significantly and i am NOT making enough money to support myself just with my comissions, something which is making me really worried.
So i'm going to set up a fixed ammount that i'll later translate into dollars so i can live without having to worry about the currency fluctuations of the dollar affecting the amount of money i get in the end of the month.

Anyway, i'm sorry to be a bearer of bad news, but
I'm setting up a poll to see what you guys think.
Afterall i know what my art is worth, and i know my work is of value. It's a decision i have to make in order to achieve further goals and live a decent life.

Hope it won't make you guys change your mind about comissioning me.


And about my pending comissions, i have finalized lineart for 90% of the pieces and now that i'm going to ramp up speed
You guys should be getting your comissions sooner now!

Damn not getting your money is a problem *_*
I wonder if PP has something good.
Last time I used it to buy some stuff I had my credit card number stolen and you can imagine the rest :(

I'd love to open commissions too but since that mess I'm not sure on what to use for payment really...It wouldn't be nice if everyone who pays me is risking to have all the money sucked from their credit card, now that you're finding an alternative way I'll check it too :)

You are in the US
you shouldn't have the kind of problems i get from paypal.

But the kind of trouble you got might've been a phishing incident.
I almost fell for it once too.
But now i am MEGA careful with whatever email i get from paypal

Nao depositaram o dinheiro na minha conta.
