MPS Store Changes

Over the weekend, one of my phone sex operators tried to add an item to her store at MyPhoneSite. The item for sale was her email address, for direct scheduling of appointments and the like. And it was upon creation of this store item that I discovered some changes at MPS.

First, the new store item did not go live on the site. Instead, it was marked “review” — which was news to me! — and only was visible from the operator side of things. Figuring I was, once again, just on the cutting edge of another policy change, I didn’t think much of this new step and just decided to wait it out. But then, just a few days later, I logged in to my MPS account and discovered that the newly created store item was not there at all. As there were no email notices sent during any part of the process, I was a bit concerned. Had the store item not passed review? (And if so, for what reason?) Or had it just become a casualty of site upgrades/changes? So I contacted MPS customer service to help me understand what was going on.

As always, MPS customer service gave me the information I needed.

The item I had tried to list in the store had not just disappeared; it had not met the new MPS store policy guidelines.

This means that we are no longer allowed to sell our email addresses to clients. Which is more than a bit disappointing, as email contact is often faster — both for those of us with multiple phone sex operator accounts and for callers who are using their mobile phones to quickly and privately schedule a call. (Not to mention, the purchasing of an email address quite often is the mark of a good phone sex client, for the purchase usually means they are serious about continuing to pay for your services and are not going to attempt to harass you for free email exchanges, etc.)

While this loss in efficiency (and client screening) is, like the recent loss of selling tangible items at MPS, admittedly painful, there is good news. Or at least good news is on the horizon.

As usual, MPS is continuing to work on issues like these. This includes trying to find or create other payment options while maintaining the requirements of merchant accounts (and so those of credit cards and payment processing companies) and the privacy of both the PSOs and the callers. While resolving these issues will take some time, it was clear from this conversation with Gary (as with those in the past), that great things will continue to come at MPS. More details to come as I am allowed to share them.
