The Stripe saga continues…
If you missed my previous post about Stripe (my payment processor) closing my account, you can read it here.
Members, thank you so much for your attention, patience, and support.
As of August 17th 2022 Stripe closed one of my accounts.
I had 3: Bunny Luna, WC, Bookshop
The Bunny Luna and WC account are both connected to my website and your memberships, some of you are connected to one and some of you are connected to the other.
The WC account is the one that has been closed.
The only way I will be able to know who is attached to the closed WC Stripe account is by which payments fail over the next month or so.
If you get an email saying your payment has failed, that most likely means that your membership is attached to the closed account. You have done nothing wrong! I will be emailing you soon.
Sometime in October once a full billing cycle has gone through, I will email those of you whose payments are failing with next steps. I haven’t figured out what those are yet, but it’s my top priority and I am working on it!
The payment processors that I was hoping would work for me because they accept “high risk” merchants (I’m considered high risk because my website has nudity on it) are too expensive. Like $1000/year + $100/month + transaction fees expensive.
I’m considering other options because it’s important to me to be able to share nude art.
I also have to be able to pay my rent and buy groceries.
It has gotten more and more difficult over the years to be an artist that includes nudity in my work, but I am not willing to give up. This is a rocky time right now but we will continue to move forward together. Puritanical corporations can’t stop us from being naked on the internet! We will find a way.
If any of you know of a payment processor that integrates with wordpress and woocommerce and allows nudity, PLEASE let me know! You can comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you ♥
