Got a clarification on Cafepress's "make $25 or get erased" policy. Apparently, there is a significant accounting problem at CP, due to the many stores with a small amount of commission due, yet not enough to send them a check. Those stores cause headaches. Stores with no commission due (all too many of them, I'm sure) don't cause a problem.

So, I fall into the "pain in the ass" accounting category, it seems. I get about 25 bucks a year in commissions from Cafepress. But, they say they'll make it easy on folks, by allowing them (soon) to use their commissions as partial payment on Cafepress products. If you do that, the commission accounting mess goes away, and your store remains open. Of course, it also means you used up your commission to buy a t-shirt instead of getting a check, but if you're not making more than $50 per year, it probably doesn't really matter anyhow.

Now, to prevent me from having to use CP-Bucks to buy my own stuff, you could head over to my store and help me out. Nobody has bought any "Eat Me" gear yet, which is quite a surprise, considering the folks on LJ...

Darned Cafepress rewired their servers, and now the URLs must start with a stupid "www." - last month they worked without that nonsense.

Should be fixed now.
