Google CheckOut; I have discontinued this method of payment. As most clients seem to use PayPal as their preferred method of payment Google's payment system gets little usage, because of this Google tend to assume it is no longer in use & deactivate it. That would not be too bad if Google bothered to notify me, the first I hear about it is usually when a client tells me that it is down. It would not be much of a problem to rectify if Google were not notoriously difficult to contact over such issues.
Why have I changed the method of Payment from direst Download after Payment to PayPal & set up this new page so that Customers purchasing through PayPal, It became necessary after a PayPal clients account was compromised & used to purchase goods including 4 of my Manuals. this has been placed in the hands of the UK police Internet Fraud Squad by PayPal. I am involved as one of the victims as Manuals were obtained using their clients account. If anyone is offered Copies of these Manuals without On-line Help please contact your local police.
From that point of view Direct Downloads have proved too much of a risk as the third party providing the downloads (PayDotCom) offer no protection to their clients.
The Following is an email reply I sent to A potential purchaser who intends to take up this Ancient Craft. He was concerned about getting the best help available & from someone who knew all about making things from leather. That he could access information that would enable him to become a skilled Craftsman. that he would not be fobbed off with half baked information of the type that normally accompanies Home Kits. From someone who he could rely on for help when he needed it. A tall order? No read the reply I sent below:
Greetings (Name withheld),
Thank you for contacting me. I am the only top level Craftsman on-line offering Professional Craft Skills in the form of a series of extensive Manuals backed up by Free On-line help to all purchasers. This is in line with the UK Governments requirements for e-learning. I am listed by the Government Skills Learning Department. These Manuals are the only source of cutting, material assessment & Costing in relation to leather usage.
My background was as a top level Craftsman making for top London Stores, Royalty, Film Stars & the Rich & Famous. I have Industrial Training Qualifications (see after my signature). I was the HOD at the London Leather College (prior to retirement) They ran the now defunct 2 year full time City & Guilds Leathergoods Course Which I moderated for all UK colleges offering that course. I also have Assessment Qualifications which enabled me to mark written papers as well as assess students Practical Work.
My set of Manuals when finished will form an Encyclopedia on this craft. My Manuals are not just equal to that old leathergoods course as I have gone that extra mile & included skills & technology that was not even taught in that course. (mainly due to time available & costs). The Manuals are a 'one size fits all' & are in use by Beginners, Student, Amateurs & Craftsmen updating their skills.
If you intend to take up this Craft as a profession you need all the manuals.as they interlink, as in later manuals I refer back to parts of earlier Manuals rather than repeat skills explained earlier. The Manuals are by download & I send a link to purchasers after payment.

Warning !!! Some while back Manuals were illegally purchased & downloaded using a PayPal Clients Account. Manuals are now being offered on a Cloned copy of My Sales Page which links to this one. By a Michael Willson in Birmingham Alabama. Anyone purchasing My Copyright Manuals from him will not be allowed to make use of the Free Help on offer or purchase further Manuals in this series. They will also face charges of handling stolen material when the FBI catch up with this despicable character. How can you tell if you are on the Cloned Page? it ends with = m wilson Who knows once he has your contact details your PayPal Account might be Compromised next.
