Think the rule is if they (buyer) asks to use a money order, it's OK, but you can't advertise that you take them. Ebay=Paypal and they want to make as much in fees as they can. Plus, as a buyer, you are not protected by m.o. like you are with PP.Is it not ok anymore to accept MOs from buyers these days? I offered a buyer a MO payment if they were interested...
OP sorry...somehow I though you were the buyer! I had someone tell me money orders can be faked, even a US postal MO. And the thing that happened was the PO cashed it, but then weeks later it was determined to be fradulent. This happened to someone I knew from another board a few years ago, once I heard this, I have never accepted a MO ever again.um..shes the seller here no?
usually i'd say, accept the money order, its fine as a seller, except there has been some scams out there involving money orders..so if you do do it..tread lightly.
ask her to get it from USPS and cash it first, before sending the purse out
as a buyer its very risky
for a seller, not so much
I thought as a seller you can only accept paypal? Is this true?
