Artist of the Moment

KARISMIC

Visit my shop View my bio

My name is Alicia and I have been doing art since 2011. I have been a member of Gasr since shortly after it started and I really enjoy the time I have spent here and all the wonderful people I have met. I started making art because its something I always enjoyed but never felt I was good at it. At least not with pencil and paper. I have found digital art to be comforting and I enjoy making art to share with people and I hope everyone enjoys what I make just as much as I do. I am a 35 year old stay at home mom with 2 kids. Art gives me relief from a 5 year old and an almost 14 year old. Thank you for reading and I hope that me being the artist of the moment will bring me some new buyers and friends!

How to: Set up and use a Paypal account

We have had a lot of questions regarding how to set up and use a Paypal, as well as verifying it. Hopefully this post will answer a lot of your questions!

Because of the way the verification process for paypal works, you will need to have your own bank account. It is advised that you be over 18 or have your parents permission to have a paypal account. We are not responsible for any loss of money or misuse of your Paypal account. All transactions done with Paypal are at your own risk. Please contact Paypal if there are problems with your account.

Signing up

The first step to using Paypal is, obviously, signing up. When you click the sign up button you will come to this page:


You will need to choose your country and language, and most of you will want to choose "Paypal for business and nonprofits" as this will allow you to receive money for your credits/art. If you are here to only buy art, you can choose "Paypal for personal use." After clicking on "Get started" you will be prompted to enter your information. Make sure the e-mail you use is secure and one you remember the password to and use often. This will be your log in e-mail and also the e-mail you give out to people when needing them to send you money! Also, it's very important that you use your real name, address, phone number, etc. This is because of the verification process. And make sure your password is very secure, as if someone get into your account they can not only steal your money from your Paypal but your bank account too.

Verifying your account


1. Log in to your Paypal account.
2. Click the Unverified link on the Account Overview page. This will open a Get Verified page which allows you to begin the first stage of getting verified, which is to Set up Bank Funding.
(Mine says Verified, but yours will say Unverified.


To set up Bank Funding:

1. Add your bank account. They will most likely ask your for your account and routing number. You can find these on your checks, bank statements, or you can call you bank and have them tell you.
2. Click Submit Bank funding Agreement.
3. Read the information and click Set up Bank Funding.

After you start the Bank Funding Process, they will send two deposits between 0.01 and 0.99 cents to your bank account. These deposits will be at PayPal's expense so they won't ask for them to be paid back. They will arrive within 2 to 3 working days.

When you know the amounts of the deposits:

1. Log in to your PayPal account.
2. Click Profile near the top of the page.


3. Click My money.


4. In the 'Bank accounts' section, click Update.
5. Select the bank account and Confirm.
6. Enter the two amounts. If there is more than one bank account listed, choose the appropriate bank account by using the drop-down menu.
7. Click Submit. Your bank account will be confirmed if the amounts are correct.

This is the first step to verifying your account, however you are able to take it further by adding a credit/debit card and your social security number. The more information you provide, the more money you are able to receive and send. Linking your paypal and bank account allows you to withdraw money from your bank into your paypal and also deposit money from your paypal into your bank account.

Sending money to another Paypal account

1. Log into your Paypal account.
2. Go to the "Send Money" tab.

3. Fill in the e-mail of the Paypal account you are sending money to.
4. There are debates when buying art what to choose in the bottom part. Since most of the good we deal with are digital, so there is no proof of shipping or anything like that, it is generally suggested to have them send payment as a gift. Have them put in the description line that they have "Received their artwork" or something to that effect. This is because if payment is sent as a purchase of goods or services, the buyer can easily send the artist a charge back, effectively getting their money back and stealing your artwork.

Sending money to/from your bank account:

Send money from your Paypal to your bank account:

1. Log into your Paypal account
2. Go to "Withdraw" and then "Transfer money to bank account."


3. Enter the amount you want to withdraw from your Paypal to send to your bank account, and choose which bank account to send it to if you have more than one linked.


4. Press "Continue" and your money will be transferred in 3 - 5 business days.


Add money from your bank account to Paypal:

1. Log into your Paypal account.
2. Click on "Add Money"


3. Click on "Add money from Bank Account"


4. Choose which account (If you have more than one linked) you would like to transfer money from and the amount you want transferred. MAKE SURE you have that much money in your bank account or your account will be overdrawn!


5. In 3 - 5 days your money should arrive into your paypal account.


Other ways to get money into your Paypal account:

Schedule regular transfers: You can set up a certain amount of money to be deposited from your bank account every week/month/on a certain date. This will automatically happen no matter if you have the money in your account or not, to make sure you think before activating this!

Moneypak: Moneypak is a prepaid card that you can buy from places like Walmart. You are able to add money to your Paypal from a Moneypak card. This is useful for people who do not have a Paypal account but would still like to buy art from artists on this forum with real money.
