When you start making whips and people paying up front for them its a very hard habit to break you get into a cycle .. well I am about to break it ..
One of the things that has always bugged me is that I got into this cycle of people having to pay up front weeks if not months in advance for their whips
So I am gong to do something about it
From toady you can order your whip on www.impact toys.com without paying a penny up front until you come up in the order book
all you have to do is place your order on the website and select pay by bank transfer. Then about 2 weeks or so before your whip is due to be made we will contact you for full payment that is all there is to it .
This also means that you can pay via installments just order the whip in the way above and then buy gift vouchers to the total of your order we will let you know about 2 weeks beforehand how much is outstanding (because of additional processing fees I will have to charge a extrs 50p per installment)
This brings us in line with other full time whipmakers.
now as with any business (and this is our full time business not a sideline hobby around our day jobs) cash flow is king and we like money in the bank and some people want to know that its already paid for and they dont have to worry about it later so anyone placing a custom order and paying for it in full at the time or order will receive a 5% discount simply by entering the discount code
(this code can be stacked with other codes so its an additional 5% on top of say a newsletter subscription code)
At the moment this only applies to whips while we trial it by whips we mean single tail snake signal and bull whips. This does not yet apply to custom floggers, dragon tails, etc.
HOW IT WORKS
once we have your unpaid order in the system it will be put in the workbook
a week before you whip is due to be made we will email you on the email address you provide at checkout (please ensure the following domains are added to your safe senders edgeplay.co.uk dswhips.co.uk inpact-toys.com as I am terrible at switching email accounts )
we will email you a couple of times during the week preceding your crafting slot. Please be aware we cannot hold slots open indefinitely and also that your order may nedd specific non stock colours of cord that take time to get in. If we do not get a response we will move onto the next order in the book and your slot will be put to the back of the queue you then have until your order comes back to the top to make contact if you dont your place will be lost and the space made available to the next person in the queue. We think this is a fair system as it takes into account people going on holiday and sickness and whatever life throws at people ( I know all about cars blowing up etc etc after last year)
SO how does this grab people do you think its a fair system .. need any tweeks…
Does it make you feel ooooh I can order a whip and not have money tied up for an unknown amount of time
Well we hope it makes you more confident in ordering you synthetic whips from us 🙂
