A probable solution to commission chargebacks.
Artists who create commissions know one caveat with accepting PayPal: their Seller Protection doesn't cover services, so they can and will be SOL if the buyer decides to dispute the transaction. While Buyer Protection doesn't cover services either, PayPal is notorious for ruling in the favor of the buyer, so the seller needs to look into other ways of protecting themselves. Which leads to our discussion here, of how we can leverage Seller Protection to ensure scamming buyers can't run off with the money after the service is completed -- by converting your commission service into a tangible product.

Summer Fanart Contest '19 - EXTENDED! (Read below)
  EDIT: Deadline Extended! Greetings everyone, This might be good news for some of you guys and I hope it’s not a bad one for others. Starting next week, I’ll be on vacation for two weeks. During that time, though I will still be available online if I am needed, I have made some plans regarding my finances towards commissions, summer activities, projects, etc. And unfortunately, I had to pay some things that couldn’t wait. Also when I come back from my vacation, I’ll probably be flat-out broke as well and it will take 2-3 weeks before I can remake some money to provide to my needed expenses. And I’d like to h

Once again, the MN@ team is here featuring the works of dA's beloved forumers!

Once per month we'll select one active user in the forums and we'll feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.

As we're kind and awesome, we also decided to give an opportunity to everybody to get featured! Every month, we'll create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a different theme. This thread will be made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs from your gallery matching the theme and, at the end of the month, we'll select our favourite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article :)

The best thing is that the only requirement is that you're an active member of the forums!

"This is a beautiful and disturbingly meaningful piece. The coloring and focus add a lot to the semi-creepy feeling."

The Earth Will Shatter by 3wyl selected by kingmancheng

Fragile by 3wyl selected by disintegration
