STAMPIN' UP! UPDATE

 

Isn't it hard to believe November is nearly over, this year has gone so quickly even though most of it was spent in lockdown or with restrictions. Thankfully, I have finally finished making my Christmas cards, now just to sit down and write them.

There is a few Stampin'  Up! updates this week:
  1. CHANGES TO CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS
  2. LAST CHANCE PRODUCTS
  3. JANUARY-JUNE MINI CATALOGUE AND SALE-A-BRATIONS

CHANGES TO CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS

Recently Stampin’ Up! made changes to credit card processing for Australia’s online store, this change was part of an overall strategy to unify and enhance credit card security measures against ever-evolving threats. All payments are now processed in the US which means these  payments may incur an international processing fee by your bank. Not all banks are making this charge, unfortunately mine is, so please check with your bank to see if this will apply to your account.
This is not a charge by Stampin’ Up! nor was it anticipated, they are currently working  hard to find an alternate however this will take time.
There are a couple of ways to avoid this transaction fee:
PayPal, personally I have been using PayPal for years but until now did not have the ability to use it for Stampin’ Up! When placing an order online you can choose the PayPal option. 
You can also order directly with me ,pay by Bank transfer and I will make the payment via my Paypal account.
If you would like more information please email me at sueallen123@bigpond.com.




The July–December 2021 Mini Catalogue will be retiring soon, December is the last month to be able to purchase products from the catalogue, from 1st December, a number of the products will be reduced,

Stock up on your favourite products before they’re gone for good! Save up to 50% on essential craft supplies. What are you waiting for? Start shopping! After all, this selection of Last-Chance Products is only available while supplies last.

JANUARY-JUNE MINI CATALOGUE AND SALE-A-BRATIONS



The new catalogue goes live 4th January, 2022 and it is scrumptious, I can't show you inside yet but trust me it is scrumptious,  if you live in Australia and don't already have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and would like a free copy please email me your details to sueallen123@bigpond.com.

 


will also send you a copy of the Sale-a-brations catalogue.
