Re: Uh Hi!

I've heard not much good about Paypal, but big fees weren't on the radar. Are they high with cash, or only with Credit Cards?

My brother used to sell stuff and require that a check be sent and cleared before he shipped. I don't suppose most people use paper checks anymore.

Welcome back, David!

Sorry about the business, but when it's too much work, and not much fun,
it's time. I decided when I was about 50 that doing it all wasn't an option.
I still loved the retail end, so worked during the season selling and
designing on the spot.
When my knees gave out, I started growing again, but mostly 4" annuals and
gallon tomatoes, plus some unusual perennials.  I don't think I'll do
anything this year with the drought, though I renewed my license.

I've thought about selling tomato transplants on EBay, but I've never sold
anything there before. It's a big investment in growing supplies for
somebody who knows diddly about the on-line selling process.
