Now Accepting Cryptocurrencies for Photography Business

I now have the ability to accept cryptocurrencies as a form of payment for my photography business.  So, if you are someone who prefers that method of payment over fiat currencies, now you have to ability to pay me via crypto!  I accept many, so all you have to do is ask which ones I can take, and I can let you know.

This also applies to my new photography e-commerce website at ashad-mukadam-photos.myshopify.com!  At this time, I can only accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Dogecoin on the e-commerce site.  During checkout, when you select your method of payment, select either Coinbase (for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash) or CoinPayments (for Dogecoin) as your payment method, and then follow all the steps required in order to pay for your order.

New Photography E-Commerce Website

I have just started up an e-commerce website for my photography.  On this new site, you can purchase photo products, prints, and downloads of my non-client photos, and their all in one place.  So, if you’ve seen my photos on social media, and wanted it on a product, as a print, or to download for your own personal, use, now you can!  I actually encourage you to not only take a look, but to also buy something from there!  Also, share it with your friends, and encourage them to buy something too!  Here is the link to where you can go to buy these photo items:

New Products Available on Pixieset Website

Good news everyone!  I have now added new products available for sale on my Pixieset website.  They are: Digital Downloads, Wood Prints, new types of framed prints, Bamboo Prints, and various types of cards.  Digital Downloads are available in Original, High-Resolution, and Web (Large, Medium, and Small).

So, if you’d like to check out all of these new products, and also buy one of them (as well as the other products that were already available there), go the following website today:

ashadmukadam.pixieset.com

Just a note: now, when you subscribe to my Patreon and SubscribeStar pages at the $10 level, you’ll get early access to digital downloads that will be eventually available for sale in my Pixieset store.

Now on SubscribeStar

I have now created a SubscribeStar page.  The way that this works is just like Patreon, where you subscribe to the tier that you want, depending on what you want to see.  It is also priced in USD.  In the case of my page, it will be just like Patreon, where the $5/month tier allows you to see photos not shared on my websites or social media accounts (and will be the same photos as shown on Patreon), and also gives you exclusive access to coupons to my Pixieset site, and the $10/month tier allows you to download photos for your own personal use.

However, the downloads work differently here compared to Patreon.  Instead of 5MB, 10MB, and original size downloads, the size of downloads will be 1MB, 3MB, and 5MB, as 5MB is the maximum image size allowed on SubscribeStar.  So, unless the original image size is below 5MB, there will be no way for me to allow a download of the original image size there.  Also, while there will be a list of links, they will be zip files instead of the actual image files, since the actual images load up, rather than the attachment files.  So, in order to download the size of image you want, you will still click the file, but then you’ll have to unzip it.

If you’d like to check it out, or if you want to subscribe to this page, please go to www.subscribestar.com/ashadmukadam.

Now on Patreon

I have now created a Patreon page.  This is for my photography, and the purpose is to share photos that I have not shared anywhere else (including social media), as well as to allow access to digital downloads of my photos for your own personal use, including for backgrounds for your computer and mobile devices.  That means that they are not to be published on any other websites.  Furthermore, it will allow you to get exclusive coupons for buying prints on my Pixieset website.  There will be two tiers for membership (prices in USD): $5/month for seeing the pictures and getting the coupons, and $10/month in order to get access to the downloads.  As of now, this will be the only way that I’ll be able to allow digital downloads of my photos.  The photos will be available in three sizes: 5MB, 10MB, and the original size.

Eventually, I might allow for downloads of my photos on my own e-commerce site when I can afford to create one, and if that is the case, the $10/month tier will allow for early access to the digital downloads to my photos.

The website for my Patreon is www.patreon.com/ashadmukadam.

Real Estate Photography Portfolio Up On Photography Website

I didn’t get a chance to upload one on Monday when I officially announced that I was adding real estate photography to my photography services, but I now have a portfolio for real estate photography up on my photography website.  If you would like to see what I have put in there so far, please go to the following website:

Now On Pinterest

I now have two new Pinterest accounts: one is for my photography, and one is for my writing.  So, if you happen to be on there, please give me a follow, and see what I have decided to pin on there:

Now Offering Real Estate Photography Services

I’m now offering real estate photography services as part of my photography business.  I will be offering services for both residential and commercial real estate properties.  So, if you’re a realtor who needs these services, please go to the following page on my photography website for more details: https://ashadmukadamphotography.wordpress.com/photography-services/real-estate-photography/.  For pricing information, please go to the following page: https://ashadmukadamphotography.wordpress.com/pricing/re-photo-pricing/.  If you know a realtor who needs these services, please refer them to the previous two links for more information.

As of right now, I will only be offering these services within the city of Calgary.  Furthermore, I will not be providing drone photography as part of my services.

Update on Bank Payments for Photography Business

Just a quick update on if you’re intending on making bank payments (now to be known from this point on as AFTs, or Automated Funds Transfers) for my photography services.  The process has changed a bit, as I’ve changed my processor for AFTs.  Now, you no longer will receive two invoices and emails from me (one that allows you to make credit card and PayPal payments, and the other that allows you to make AFT payments).  Instead, you’ll just get one invoice, and when you click the link in the email or the payment button in the invoice, and you click the red “Pay Now” button in the new window or tab, you’ll see three payment options: Credit Card, PayPal, and Direct Debit.  To make the AFT payment, click Direct Debit, and then you can enter in your details.

Furthermore, when you look on your bank statement, the AFT payment line will show the payee as GoCardless.  Do not worry or panic about this – this is the name of my AFT payment processor, and the payment is still being made to me.

Accepting Debit Card Payments for Photography Business…Again!

Starting tomorrow (October 23, 2019), I’ll be able to start accepting debit card payments over $100 for my photography business again!  I just got word from my in-person credit card payment processor (the same one that allows me to accept Interac Flash, Apple Pay, and Google Pay) that tomorrow (October 23, 2019), they’ll add the ability to accept debit card payments over $100 to the readers that I currently have.  Which is good news, because ever since June of last year, when my debit card payment processor at the time closed up shop, I had been wondering if I’d ever be able to accept debit card payments above $100 again, since I couldn’t find any debit card payment processors that didn’t have a contract, and didn’t have a monthly fee.  So, if you’re in Calgary and hoping to book me as your photographer, and you were hoping I’d be able to accept debit card payments over $100 again because that is your preferred method of payment, wait no more!  Book me today!
