I have discovered that there IS a way of paying for these commissions without a PayPal account, but it does require you to have a credit or debit card with an online bank account
Recently, my family and I have been thrown into a bit of a predicament. Long story short, by the time I leave college in 2015, I will no longer be able to receive disability benefits because, in the eyes of the government, I am fit to work. Even though I know I'm not able to with my health problems, the government will be changing the qualifications of such benefits so that the worst cases can get the benefits and they can catch out scammers. While I admire the ambition, these changes also mean that people who don't quite meet the standards (such as myself) are left out to fend for themselves with no way of getting help.
Quite simply, since I am unable to work right now because of college and my health, I need to find a way of saving up money for when my benefits stop and I have something in the bank that I can rely on. Of course, the benefits may not change come 2015, but no one in my family is willing to risk losing our home and livelihoods we barely make ends meet as it is WITH the benefits
so opening commissions is really my only way of securing some money for the future.
Before moving onto prices and rules, I want to let you all know that I do have a donation button on my website if you want to help but either can't afford my commission prices or don't want one: www.followtheleadercomic.co.uk…
