I currently accept Master Card, Visa, American Express, Discover and eChecks thru PayPal (a secure credit card processing center).
Many people wanted to pay by check and now they can if they have an account with PayPal. You will need to set up your own account through PayPal in order to use these services.
UPDATE 5-04-2012 – Due to the number of people who are reversing eCheck payments AFTER I’ve done their reading (and even after they’ve given me positive feedback on their readings), I will no longer accept eChecks via PayPal as a payment option. Since I do not have a way to turn this option off at PayPal, if you choose to pay by eCheck, I will immediately stop the process from my end and will not do your reading. Unfortunately, a few bad apples have spoiled it for everyone.
Posted 05-19-03 – In good faith, I have been doing readings paid by eCheck prior to the check clearing. Due to several eChecks not clearing, and the customers never making good on the payment, I will no longer do readings until the check has cleared. It can take up to 7 business days for the check to clear so I want you to understand that I will wait the full 7 days. If this is a problem, please pay by credit card or with your PayPal account.
All orders for psychic readings are delivered via email with seven days. Psychic readings are not refundable.
The reading that you are given is personal and private and is only for you. Your reading is not discussed with anyone. I usually doesn’t remember details of the reading after completion as I am just a vessel for the information to flow through. No information such as email addresses etc. are released or sold to anyone whatsoever. Your reading with me will be completely confidential.
All readings will be sent through email.
Please make sure that the email address you submit is up to date and working properly. Always submit an alternative email address in the event that your primary email address goes down. No refunds will be given due to email addresses that don’t work.
Refunds are not given once the reading has been completed. This is completely understandable as there will be people who want a reading and will then say that they didn’t believe it or that that the reading wasn’t applicable to them just so they can get it for free. It takes effort, concentration and time on my part to do a reading and to get it to the person requesting it. Credit card refunds, cash refunds, or money order refunds will not be issued on a completed reading. Refunds will not be given if you do not receive your reading because your email isn’t working – instead they will be resent to a working email address that you provide. That’s why additional email addresses are requested several times to make sure the reading can be delivered to you.
I am VERY UPFRONT about the no refund policy because this is a service not a product.
This form is not available for submission at this time because I’m not doing readings right now. When I am, I will have a page set up for it.
