Question?????

I was wonder how most people do the financial transactions here? In the old days one would accept a check and waited until it cleared or just took a chance on getting burned. Let's say I want to sell something, what is the safest (best) way to do the tranaction for both parties?? Thanks!!!

Paypal, it costs a fee to get money though. Always ask for a bank certified check or money order, pretty simple and straight up.

Heavenly Father, thank you for your Word which is the Truth that sets me free. Give me strength to separate myself from anything that does not honor You. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Every transaction was done with PayPal. I included the fees in my selling price. Everyone paid for the items, all got shipped and every one happy.

However, there is either a certain amount of trust or hope and prayer on behalf of those that send large amounts of money with PayPal. I had some send me as much as $1500.00. But it works because I am an honest person.

But in reality, a person could take the funds, never ship the items and PayPal will do NOTHING about it if items are sold outside eBay.

Lot of people took a chance sending me huge sums of money and were rewarded with their faith by getting a lot of new items cheap.

But not everyone is honest and some have been burned on this and other forums.

To be Honest, it is a crap shoot for the buyer.

I have decided a long time ago to treat all whom I deal with as 100% honest. I know that not all people are, but my guess is most are, probably in the very high 90 percent column. That way I never do anyone wrong, and if I get done wrong, so be it. It wasn't my day.

Don't mean I wont try and hunt em down though.

But most people are honest, almost all people. Thats a good thing to know.

And to date not a single person has ever stole from me thru internet transactions and I have made a lot. I am batting 100%!
