The Solaris brass desk clock is a stunning timepiece that is sure to please the recipient. A precision quartz clock movement is housed in a hand-polished, forged brass and marine lacquered case. The gimbaled design allows the clock to swivel for any viewing angle and can be locked in place much like the historic gimbals that allowed clocks to travel safely at sea centuries ago. This show-stopper brass desk clock stands on three solid legs, and below, the beveled glass crystal (surrounded by a ring of brass) can be etched to create an elegant personalized gift.

How to Setup your PayPal Account to make payments with LayBuy:
PayPal auto-cancels a profile if they cannot link the recurring payments to a card in the customer’s setup. In the case where no card is linked, they then have to unfortunately cancel the plan. These are the steps the customer needs to follow to rectify their setup, and link the correct card.
Steps to check you have the correct card linked:
Login to PayPal
Click ‘manage automatic payments’
Click ‘set available funding sources’
You will then see the credit card and/or bank card that’s linked to your account setup. You need to ensure the correct card is residing here, and select for the recurring payments to work. Then the customer can then try place order again – and this next time, the plan will not be auto-cancelled.
