Craft Sale Payments Just Got Easier

Hey everyone! By now you probably know that WEST is having a sale in October (see the first round of vendors here). If you're a seasoned craft sale attender, you know the nostalgic feeling you get when you first walk into the building--where you wonder what amazing things you're going to find, what kind of food you're going to try and you leave feeling all cheery and ready for the holidays.

A few vendors are offering a way to pay with credit cards at this upcoming sale, and we wanted to share with you a little bit of how this works! If you find a sign or sticker on a vendor's table indicating a mobile card option, you can pay with the credit card types indicated. What will likely happen is that the vendor will swipe your card using a device on their phone which will directly charge your card.

This is a secure payment method--there will be no information collected or shared about you,the buyer, and if you choose to provide an email address, this is only used for a receipt. All customer information is encrypted on the device company's server, even if the WiFi connection is public or on a data server.

We will also provide maps to an ATM where you can get extra cash if you find more than you thought you might ;)  Just a few things to make your shopping day a little easier! Hope to see you there!
