I am blind on a new venture and I really need some advice. I bought a domain name for my personal woodworking blog about a month ago. I have now finally got enough money and opened a small savings account in my name. Today I started up a Pay Pal account. I have bought the rights to 1800 scroll saw and intarsia patterns. I also have quite a few items that I have made that are mine and I have been slowly turning them into paper patterns. I have figured out that the pay pal deal guarantees me as a seller (that I will get the money first) but my questions are
#1. Is there a way to send paper patterns via e-mail and has anyone ever heard of that? It is the way I got the original 1,800 patterns, but it was in a zip. file of which I have no clue how to do that. And how would I know the person really received them or not or if I were being scammed.
#2 I had planned on just mailing them the second I received the money, so would I request a confirmation receipt? etc.
#3 I do not want to charge an arm and a leg, I would prefer to sell them cheap but every time I buy something via the mail, the shipping and handling can cost me more than the purchase itself. What is that all about?
