I think it’s important for insurance sake too
What do you mean? If you actually reply I already love you 50x more than the people who just instead ghost my follow up call/emails.
If you actually give a reason (price, product, time, other?) even better.
Eg if you say “thanks but one of the directors decided to use his cousin…” then I know not to bother you again.
If you say “we love it…[Read more]
Did you ever find one? Square & stripe do a little but they’re not ideal.
Renting software is definitely like something hanging over your head each month. The worst ones are things like bookkeeping software, as you can’t just stop even if they up prices.
For adobe there are lots of alternatives, so it’s hard to say if it’s worth for you or not.
Beautiful site. Good luck with the new biz!

I don’t know where people are seeing your web url, but “affordable designer fine jewellery brand” is not a niche. It sounds like you’re trying to be everything to everyone, which is the hardest market to be.

Unless a trinket is valuable it’s a waste of your $. (ie worth at least $30+ and something I wanted to buy anyway – not yet another branded usb key that breaks after 3mths)
