What is the recommended payment method for the trade section?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have read the guidelines for the trade section and have found lots of payment methods to avoid but I do not seem to have found the recommended payment method for a transaction when the seller is too far away to collect the item in person.

 

What is the recommended sage payment method?

Most use paypal. As seller, you should decide in advance when you or the buyer are expected to pay the paypal fees (sometimes a seller will write that they are willing to split the fee) and also shipping. Include that information in your FS/FT ad so the buyer can better determine the total cost. Good luck.

Almost all the classified listings use Paypal. Just take a minute to check out the buyer if you're selling. If it's someone whose been a member for a while, has feedback, makes posts that sound like they are coming from a genuine headphone enthusiast, etc., you are probably fine. On the other hand, if a buyer just joined and has no posts, you might want to ask for a check or money order. Just use your judgment.

In order to avoid the paypal fees, I did bank transfer. It is safe and also an evidence.
