PayPal Changes Scheduled and Being Shared With You

PayPal Changes Scheduled Being Shared With You from LilacsNDreams. Welcome everyone, and glad you could stop to visit for a bit. 

How many of you use PayPal services for your selling platforms, your business, with your websites, used as your payment processor, and etc? I myself have used them for years. Actually when I started with EBay many years ago I was signed up with PayPal. I have used them ever since then, and I am still using them to this day wherever I am making sales.

If you are using their services you have probably received notice of changes that are scheduled, or maybe you have heard some people mention something about it too. For those who miss placed their notices, haven’t received anything , are considering using PayPal, and etc I have enclosed notices that I received in my email along with a notice that was shared on E-commerce Bytes with subscribers too. 

Please take the time to read copies of notices I am sharing below. It really shouldn’t be a surprise for some kind of fee increases with PayPal. I really can’t remember the last time they made a change, or did any kind of increase. It’s all business, and there have been many places that have done increases, did more increases again, and etc. The Postal Service is one of them along with other shipping services too. I guess I can say I was not real surprised by the notice received by them. 

Another quick note about last weeks posting talking to you about the house we are hoping to have. It appears the numbers are looking good according to the realtor. We have to wait for the attorney to be back from vacation that will be doing the papers for closing, signing, etc. As long as nothing else comes up which it shouldn’t. Just being nervous, and anxious. Hopefully, and thinking that maybe by the end of July we should be moved in. It looks good, sounds good, but I guess just waiting for reality to sink in that we are close to moving into a little bigger home with some scheduled home improvements that are being noted. The house is move in ready as it is, but there are some minor things we would like to have done for our comfort. Course it also adds more equity to the home too. Wish us luck!

Thanks so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams! Glad you stopped by, and feel free to drop by anytime. Take care, and be safe till our next visit. Toodles . . . .

DIY Vintage Collectibles Repurposing With All Things We Do

 DIY Vintage Collectibles Repurposing With All Things We Do at LilacsNDreams. Welcome to everyone visiting today!

Wow! Where has this time gone? A lot of time was spent with my husband being ill, his recovery, doctors, hospital, ER visits, and etc. He’s back to work, doing good, still has an issue now and then, but its expected according to the doctor. 

Now, we have a house we have been working on getting too. Thursday we had a slight delay due to someone not doing their job correctly, got some feathers a little flustered, but all is good, and moving forward. The appraisal was done on the home Friday. There have been a few steps with The VA/VU that have been covered with their processing. Learning experience too. So, now waiting to hear the numbers with the appraisal, and hopefully things are good that we will soon be closing…I think it was predicted for mid July on closing. Time will really be moving along then. So many things to donate, downsize, pack, arrange where things will go in new home, which rooms, and so on. Especially where to put all my crafty things, and hopefully in the near future I can start crafting again. 

I will be so comfortable to be crafting again, painting, cutting, and doing some thrifting for pieces to work with, and looking for some vintage collectibles too. The Pandemic put such a hold on things. It’s great things opening up again, and to be able to work towards some normality of things also. I’ve missed doing a lot of things, and am really anxious to get busy with things again. Course, anxious for the house, and adding some touches in there as well. Next spring hopefully we start with some minor adjustments we want on the house too. Extending a room making a 4th bedroom, and adding another bathroom to the house too. Some remodeling, and updating has been done already. Simple things we like, and anxious to add a little more. Putting a tin roof on is also on the list. Dog should be happy there with the fenced in back yard too.

Well everyone I don’t want to bore you with my repeating, and rambling with my excitement of events. Cross the fingers, and wish us luck the next time you hear from me that we are moving. Thanks for stopping by, and visiting with LilacsNDreams! Take care, be safe, and see you again soon. Toodles . . .
