So, this might be a bit of a strange topic, but I was thinking about something regarding comissions and the payment methods involved, as both a viewer and a possible future consumer (not really an artist myself).
Basically, everyone knows that PayPal's, or services along the lines of that, are the standard but, as someone that unfortunately has no access to those services, I always felt it was annoying that I couldn't order something like a comission, in spite of the fact that I definitely want to.
There are other services that involve purely cash, like PaySafeCard (for example, Steam has that...fortunately), or even basic online gifting (heck, I've seen people mention Steam gifts) and I always wondered "Why don't artists accept these alternative methods?".
I assume there are costs involved in setting up a service like PaySafe but it's still limiting possible consumers. I'm aware that I'm possibly among a small group of people, since pretty much everyone seems to have access to the standard services, but it still made me wonder.
Everything taken into account, as artists, what are the reasons involved in denying such methods? I'm actually curious (and I'd appreciate any possible workarounds honestly, if there are any).
Anyways, weird or not, I thought it was a topic worth having and a question worth answering, so thanks :)
