Usually, as you may have noticed, artist pay takes me about 2 weeks of grueling effort. Maybe 3, if my notes aren't good.
I'm done. It's the 1st, and it took me about 4 hours from start to finish. All the tallying and organizing, and a stack of orders that dwarfed the first half of the year to deal with, and I'm all done and brushing off my hands and thinking pleased-ly 'that wasn't bad!' Some of it was because artist supplies and print services obviously have no fees to pay out, and that's a lot of my sales, and because I already tallied and paid off Ursula's shirts-thingy. But a lot of it was my new spiffy program, which worked... almost seamlessly. Looks like the 'pay me!' link that artists got wasn't functioning, but it told them what to do if it wasn't (email me), and some folks have done so. It's SO much easier and painless. I still have to send out some payments, but the tallying and emailing and calculating of balances? All done. DONE.
I'm taking the rest of the day off.
