  1. While I don't receive commissions personally, if Paypal converts it to standard currencies, maybe you should add in a line that says "Please convert to (insert your preferred currency) before sending."?
  2. If needed, would it be an idea to have an updated reference (if ref-sheet of a character) so that you can say that the artwork was made by someone you trust? I'm having to go through something like that with artists that I've had some sour experiences with. The artists were good, and the artwork provides the details, but I feel the art-style would make me think of the bad moments too much, but that is just me and my two-cents-worth.
  3. No problem. Didn't see the tag-updates, but saw that and figured it might be useful/relevant for this beware.
  4. From the link Bourbon dropped, it looks like they're trying to transfer to https://www.furaffinity.net/user/darlingdoeling. as per their journal here: https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/9786193/
  5. It depends on the rules for your bank, but sometimes banks have the same window as paypal (180 days from transaction). It wouldn't hurt to look into it.
  6. Filing a dispute/escalating to a claim in paypal (if you used that for payment) is usually your last line of communication, but if you could not get through to the artist before this point, you might need to resort to doing this. If you do go through this, make sure you do not close the dispute (or let it auto-close without escalation) if you don't get what you paid for. Once a dispute is closed, you cannot reopen it and a claim cannot be filed. Also disputes will auto-close within a certain number of days (one week to ten days if my memory serves me right? could be mistaken here).
  7. As of this time and if https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/9738898/ is to be believed, Nika has 45 commissions (including collabs) that are awaiting completion. Of those 45, 28 are not even started if I'm reading that journal right (21 being listed as (%0) and 7 having no progress % listed). Of those that have a progress amount: 11 are below %50 So in total, 39 out of 45 (or approximately 87%) of Nika's total commissions are not yet out of the lineart phase. If you all want me to break it down further from what I can see, most of these are YCH's that aren't even out of t
  8. BBCode doesn't seem to like me here, so I'll drop links to the images, let me know if they work here. This is how an email-notice for an invoice looks to the recipient. https://i.imgur.com/SUYCHPU.png Here's what they would see on their paypal dashboard page https://i.imgur.com/zHO8BQg.png If they go to their activity-page, they will see this: https://i.imgur.com/4tA2uKg.png After they find their invoice, this is what they should see: https://i.imgur.com/UxdjeLK.png And lastly, this will be be in the pop-up page for paying for the invoice: (note, it may be in a
  9. Ah, okay. Sorry for the confusion on that. And to be honest, if they do a "Send payment" there is a chance they may accidentally use "Friends and Family", which is unwise on multiple parts (could harm the artist if the artist receives too many payments like that, prevents disputes/claims if a situation arises within the normal 180 day window, ect.). If you need to, simply mentioning about the preventing of disputes and claims might deter some people from trying to use the "Send Payment" and might encourage them to request an invoice.
  10. I'll drop this here for the how-to for sending an invoice. https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/how-do-i-create-and-send-an-invoice-faq3144 Now, when I get an invoice to pay, I'll see if I can make a step-by-step on how the commissioner sends the payment through the invoice. I have to wait until Thursday first though. Edit: Here is the text-based instructions on how to do it from paypal's site: https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/how-do-i-pay-a-money-request-or-invoice-faq2206
  11. I've seen only the commissioner-side of invoices (never made one myself), but I know that by default Paypal sends a copy to the email-listed for the recipient's Paypal account and also puts up a notice of a "To be paid" or "Requires attention" (or something else of that effect) on the main-page when the person accesses their account. Invoices that are awaiting-payment usually get put to the forefront while other already-performed activity gets separated. Next time I get an invoice, I may have to screenshot it to show how it looks (with censoring PII of course).
  12. Tacking on the cost of court/legal fees may not be of much benefit, though do some locations even go so far in the law to add an 'interest per day' in terms of unpaid contracts?
  13. An odd thought to bring up, but since Celestina brought up that talking about negative experiences is protected by law made me think of this possibility: Could a small-claims case be brought up against Bad Coyote / CritterCanvas for the reason of 'accepting payment and not fulfilling contract' (not providing goods promised) due to the amount that was paid? From what I see, you have: proof of payment, approximate timeline/deadline, and the lack-of-product/lack-of-attempt seems to be a lot of evidence against the said artist. It may be a bit difficult if the artist and client are withi
  14. Something else that might be an idea is to make sure you have a pose in mind and what details you want refined down. For example, having a simple akimbo pose is a good detail, also having a front view and a back view are good as well (some go a step-further and have a side-view too. Details of the eyes and any body markings (tattoos, scars, beauty-marks, ect.) are good mentions too.
  15. Wouldn't an incomplete refund indicate that they were already in negative for their paypal balance before the refund initiated? It could be a possible indication that someone else might've performed a dispute/claim against them as well.
