***But my usual custom store is still open! Link above***

As I DO NOT WANT to use Stripe, I have had to close my Storenvy Marketplace store. I received an e-mail the other day from Storenvy - ‘You’re Store Is Setup For Stripe Payments!’ (yes, ‘You’re’), which stated that they had ‘created a placeholder Stripe account’ for me, which I did NOT ask for or expect, and so my only option not to use this stupid Stripe thing is to manually close my Marketplace shop, thus massively limiting my exposure. 

Why don’t I want to use Stripe, you ask? Because I don’t want to input my card details into an app I’ve never even heard of (which is the exact reason why I use Paypal), and payments to the UK (where I’m based) take ages to clear. Oh, and the fees, fuck that noise.

I am honestly appalled at Storenvy’s tactic of forcing people into using Stripe if they want to remain on the Marketplace. Their opt-out-of-Stripe page even snarkily points out that ‘We gave those stores the option of opting out , and though we emailed about this, and made the announcement weeks prior in your admin panels, certainly many were still not aware.’ Well I certainly wasn’t aware that you were just going to make a damn account for me that I didn’t want! What if I’d received a Stripe sale in the time it took me to respond to the e-mail?? 

The best thing? After I closed the Marketplace shop, Storenvy sent me another e-mail saying ‘As an independent brand or small business it’s all about exposure, and the Storenvymarketplace is an effective way to get your business in front of millions customers.’ JUST TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY. 

(I’m sorry if this doesn’t make much sense, I’m really ill atm. And srsly pissed)
