How do you send/receive money for online sales?
Posted by: space-time

I have a few items for sale here on MRF and I may post more. Someone offered to buy my Apple TV. I am curious how you send money these days. My preffered methods are

Zelle (from your bank to mine)

Amazon Gift Cards

PayPal

check, money order, H&B (just kidding).


I would like to avoid Paypal if possible (sorry Elon) since they keep bugging me to add a bank account. I think I managed to remove my bank account a while ago and I do not want to add it back. But Paypal is better than waiting for a check to arrive and to clear.

ApplePay?

I can send money from my checking account to individuals online with my Credit Union's Bill Payment service.

PayPal, if not using Amazon or eBay's internal payment systems.

In my sales here (and with friends online), I've always accepted PayPal, iTunes GC, or Amazon GC, and usually sent payment via PayPal (which is what nearly everyone accepted).

Seems aprapo -

Hookers OR Booze

but generally Paypal (though I like the Amazon GC idea)

thanks, I didn't think of Applepay. I used it to buy stuff, but I never used it to send/receive money.

I just got Zelle payment for the AppleTV. it's good to have multiple options.

If I was sending the money, definitely NOT PayPal "friends and family."

When I've sold on MRF, I've asked for a check, if I recognize the name. Yeah, I'm old school. And I've always recognized the name and have always taken checks from them. Haven't had a problem yet.

If someone insists on Paypal (and a couple have), I'll take that too, but then I just transfer the money to my bank.

Cashiers or regular check for the last couple. Without looking it up, I don't remember how I paid for my Canon SX40. I don't do PayPal, but that was mostly because ebay was their evil overlord until they got spun back off.

The secret to your success!
I send PayPal Friends and Family to users here that I recognize to avoid them having to pay fees.
I haven’t had a problem.
I’ve used PP on Reddit also, for goods from individuals with some being F&F payments.
