GET PAID WITH PAYPAL
Consignor Payouts will be via Paypal
consignor payouts will now be via paypal!
wait! why are you not writing checks?!
If you have been with My Mommy Mart for more than 2 sales, then you know that I try my best to have consignor accounts reconciled and checks ready in time for pickup on the Sunday after the sale closes on Saturday.
This is no longer a feasible option for us due to the amount of items to be sorted after the event and the number of accounts to be reconciled. Remember if you volunteer, you receive your consignor registration back in your check!
how do i get paid the money i’m owed?
Consignors will now be paid via Paypal. I have spent so much time printing checks, signing them, alphabetizing them for pickup, separating checks to be mailed, waiting for people to cash them, etc. over the last 9 years.
No more staying up all night reconciling over 300 accounts and printing checks. No more lost in the mail checks. No more handling the payment info multiple times!!
I did seriously consider printing all the checks and mailing each one on Tuesday after the event. However, I return to my full time job on that day so I need for MMM to be finished by then.
claim your money!
How does this change things for you? For the most part, it doesn’t. You don’t have any fees associated with MMM paying you through Paypal. I will be paying the fee. You will just need to claim your consignor check within 30 days. You can claim the payment and leave it in your Paypal account or you can transfer it to your bank account. That part is completely up to you!
To make this process as smooth as possible, this is what I need from you.
Update your My Mommy Mart Consignor account with the email address you use for Paypal. Yes, it HAS to match. Otherwise, your consignor commission will be just hanging out in a different Paypal account. Also, if you got married/divorced/other name change - you may need to update your MMM or Paypal account.
If you do not update your MMM Consignor account with the same Paypal email, then you need to be prepared to wait 30 days to receive your consignor check. Paypal will not release the money for a full 30 days. This is not my choice, there is no way around it. No, I cannot write you a check in the meantime because that money has already been deducted from my account.
Claim your money within 30 days. Once you claim it, it is yours! Over and done. If it is not claimed within 30 days, it goes back into my account and then that’s another whole issue with getting you the money you are owed.
If you aren’t able to use Paypal, please note that it may take me up to two weeks to reconcile and write out checks to be mailed. If you do prefer a check, please let us know during your Drop Off time and provide a self addressed envelope so the check can be mailed to the address you have chosen.
