    I am not hiding anything and I am a very honest person. I have sold on Ebay and used paypal for 8 years and had a lot sucess with my auctions and had no negative feed back. 2 years ago I stopped selling for a while and took a brake from it and when I went to update all my information they had closed the account for nonactivity and took some of my money that was still in my account.....do you think I am going to trust them again? So I won't post any fabric for sale since some people think I am some sort of con person.

    I prefer doing paypal, it's quick and easy and can ship the next day(It's nice when you sell to have it just taken care of and if you are buying you know you won't have to wait so long). You should be able to change your bank info pretty easy there. Just do what you feel is comfortable. I've sold a little bit on here and I say that I prefer paypal but will take checks or money orders.

    Nowhere in this thread have I seen someone call you or imply that you are a con. Everyone just did as you asked and gave you their opinion.

    No one said you were a con person. You asked for opinions. I have been burned by sending a money order. The problem with a money order, is that once I put it in the mail, I now have to rely on the good graces of someone else. Each person has to look out for themselves in any transaction. And online transactions have a very high possibility of fraud.

    With a check, you have the luxury of waiting until the check clears before you send the fabric. Would you trust that the check is good and just send the fabric once you receive the check? Something tells me that you wouldn't. By waiting for the check to clear, you are saying that you trust your buyer less than the buyer trusts you. Paypal, google checkout, etc makes trust a non issue, because there is a recourse should the shiteth hitteth the fan.

    Once you are eligible to sell here (or anywhere you choose) it is completely up to you on what type of payments you take, but just know, that a percentage of your target audience will not buy under certain conditions.

    I sell a few things here and I dont have pay pal either. I know some wont buy from someone with out pay pal, but I just dont feel comfortable banking online, ect. (I am on an old computer, with dial up), and like to keep my life as simple as possible!
    I DONT wait til the check clears. WHEN they send the check or MO, I try to mail out the same day. I have never gotten a bad check here, or had any problems! A few people will change their minds, so I just wait to get the payment first, then I KNOW they want items!
    Once you start selling, people will give you feed back, and once they see you have good feedback, they might feel more comfortable buying! I love buying here, and have gotten GREAT deals!

    I have purchased and I have sold on the forum. I have never had a problem. Many times I send the item I am selling even before I get the check or money order. I usually pay by check. I have a Pay Pal account and have sold and purchased on E-Bay and Etsy for several years and have 100% feedback. I do feel much more comfortable with the members on this board. I have found them to be 99 and 44/100% pure. LOL. I would suggest you read the rules at the top of the classified section and then decide for yourself what you want to do. Good Luck in whatever you decided to do.

    I do not have a Pay Pal account and don't intend to get one. Seems too complicated. I will continue to buy and use either check, money order or cash. I am totally honest and stand by my word - the check is in the mail! I freely give and welcome feedback.

    Oh, please don't feel that way. People have their own experiences which make them feel the way they do. I understand your feelings about Paypal....although I have never had any problem... I know many, many with stories of unhappiness with them.

    There are just as many people that use DO NOT use Paypal that Do use them. I certainly wouldn't worry about selling your fabrics here if you choose to. There will be many happy people to purchase your fabrics that choose not to use paypal. Unfortunately mostly Paypal members chimed in on your question and I don't think they meant to infer anything untowards. This is a large and diverse group and opinions are like.....well you know....everybody has one. So please don't take it personally. I think you would find many people happy to find your vintage fabrics.
