Default What a lucky lad

quick story...

A friend sold a $3000 guitar on Ebay and took PAYPAL...He shipped out...Buyer denied payment so seller was a had lad...Buyer kept the guitar and then for what ever reason the buyer sent the guitar back in the same condition as it sold!!!..

Of course the buyer kept it 3 months...I guess he was on tour and needed it or wanted to try it out.... Moral of the story...Cash talks and PAYPAL walks!!

I would say however it is good for a deposit with a time limit to come and get the item..

Also I would suggest a seperate account for sales only...If you do enough....

Bank transfers can be questionable as well....

I use Pay Pal as a seller and love it. JMO.
I have never bought anything with it,just when I get the money from pay pal I send it to my bank.

Default paypal

I have used bank wire transfer for many years, never a problem. I set up an account just for these, transfer the money to another account as soon as it gets there, but the best deal is cash in hand.
