  • I always use paypal as both a seller and a buyer. I don't accept personal checks. Too risky. I've never had a problem with paypal.

  • I always use paypal. It's free for the buyer and does charge a very small fee to the seller. It is worth it not mess with the hassel of taking money orders.

  • PayPal! Hands down!

  • Paypal is the easiest....and you are required to accept some form of online payment. Yes, whem a buyer pays you get an "instant payment" e-mail from paypal. You can also print your shipping label right there on paypal, tape it to the package and have your mailman take it. All you need for that is some form of postal scale (usualy $15-$25)

  • Always use PayPal. Anything else is way too risky for both buyer and seller.

  • Thanks gals... so If I am a seller and I sell something, I wait for confirmation from Paypal that the money has been sent and then I mail off the item? Is that how it works?
