The results:

I was having issues with my own website connecting to PayPal. The payment would go through, but the sending confirmation and delivering the digital product was an issue! I framed out for a moment and I said, “Ok, what can I do?”

I remembered ConvertKit just did a launch where digital products could be linked and I’m doing a digital product so- I set it up, connected it to Stripe. I simply connected the link to the image of my Squarespace site and boom!! No issues!

It helped me continue to get sales while I figure out what’s going on with my own payment processor on my own website! ConvertKit saved the day!

So far I have made almost $1,500 pre-selling my class!

ConvertKit is the truth! Period. Now I see why my mentors recommend ConvertKit and the fact that y’all came home for commerce! Whew!!! Y’all on it!
