June saw us process 13 orders (one up from last month). Of these orders, 12 were placed by women and 1 was placed by a man. The average order value was £11.53. We have also been spreading our wings as orders have been placed from areas such at Portsmouth, Newquay and even Essex.

We use Woocommerce for our shop as it integrates with WordPress perfectly and it’s free. Plus we have just introduced a new payment processing method through Stripe. This allows you to pay using your credit/debit card as well as using Apple and Google Pay. Payment is completed on our website without being redirected and the fees are lower than PayPal. This new payment method was introduced at the end of June.

We understand there is an issue with the Market Weighton drop-off point. We apologise for this however due to COVID, Talking About Loss haven’t been able to open their Community Hub in the town centre. There are plans in place to fully reopen the hub in line with Government guidelines. We are planning on setting up more drop-off points this summer and we will keep you all updated on our social media channels. We still have one drop off point in Malton and 2 in York. You can post your items to us if this is more convenient for you.
