I've recently had to cancel a few transactions due to non-payment/non-responsiveness on the part of the Buyers. This is pretty disappointing to have to deal with since my sales are few and far between. But as Etsy grows I suppose it is to be expected that new buyers may not fully understand how the Etsy shopping experience works. So I figure it couldn't hurt to post a link to the handy checkout and help guides available on Etsy to walk buyers through the process.

So hopefully my next sale will actually be a sale, and I can again feel happy about getting that message from Etsy in my inbox instead of concerned about whether or not I'll receive payment! I've had my fill of non-payment issues for now, thanks!
