Latest myFlashStore Updates - Purchases, Facebook Post Previews, Stripe Address Request

I just wanted to run a few updates that we've added to myFlashStore to keep you in the loop and make sure you're getting the most out of the service.

Stripe Address Request

During the first few weeks of us introducing Stripe as an additional payment merchant allowing direct credit/debit card payments, we discovered that some of you required a customer's full postal address for invoicing purposes. This wasn't requested from the customer at first because we wanted to make the payment process as quick as possible for the customer so only their name, email and card details were requested. 

We know that invoicing your customers is super important so we've given you the ability to require the customers full address for Stripe credit/debit card payments. Just go to your Payment Settings on your Dashboard, make sure you're connected with Stripe and you'll see the option to Request Customer Address.

But I don't think it's going to take another marketing course, buying more ads or building a bigger mailing list. I think we need to start to innovate.

Most artists can't afford to pay 10k for one beat - let alone even 20 beats for Exclusive Rights, I know. But I met an artist a few years ago who had a decent income and he was willing to try something different with me. In the process, a cool new idea was born.
