Well the website is coming together, checkout http://www.haltcreative.co.uk – It’s built using wordpress and a theme from the amazing guys at woothemes. I’ve been testing the payment gateways to both Google Checkout and to Paypal – Man, do those guys charge high fees per transaction! The gateways seem to be working well, but they’re still set to point to the ‘sandbox’ versions so that no accidental orders get placed until we’re ready.
The next thing to do is to load the details and items for sale by our amazing artists. We’ve been overwhelmed with the level of interest so far and we’re hoping for an exciting launch in the next week or so.
We’re keen to do a monthly charity sponsorship, where 10%of our profit gets donated to a charity for one weekend a month. I’m hoping that the first charity is going to be SCOPE – a charity supporting those with Cerebral Palsy (CP). CP is very close to my heart as my little girl has the condition, hence my passion in supporting them and making them our launch charity.
Please take time to visit the links to SCOPE and Cerebral Palsy and help to increase the understanding of this condition.
Now for me, back to more testing!
