I refuse to use PayPal!
I have a good friend who makes somewhat of a living on eBay, and he is about done with it. Not because of eBay, but PayPal. He sold an item to a fellow in the next state over. The guy complained that it was not what he thought, (even though this seller has over 1000 100% ratings), so he said he would refund the buyer’s money via PayPal. Did he get back his item? No, he got a box of rocks. He had the guy’s address here in the South, so he e-mailed him and said if the money was not back into the PayPal account in 2 hours he was getting back into his truck, guns onboard, and pay the buyer a visit.
The money was back into his account in an hour, but the turmoil and ulcers are just ridiculous.
PayPal is geared to protect the BUYER, not the seller.
When I sold off my wife’s collection fo Barbie dolls, someone hacked into my account through PayPal and emptied it, and they did a lot of others. PayPal denied it even happened. That’s when I closed my PayPal account.

I take checks, money orders, bank cheques, and the deposits of about 20-25% are NON-REFUNDABLE. Shipment is made when the final check arrives and is deposited. If you want a product from me, you’ve had the chance to talk to me, talk to others who own my stuff. So I make sure you are committed. Period. It’s a tough old world, and I don’t like losing. I do the best I can to provide the top guitar I can, often spending many extra hours to make sure it is just right. Last thing I need is some person trying to take advantage.
