EBAY help w/ money orders
« on: August 10, 2006, 08:34:19 PM »

Hey guys,
I don?t sell too often on ebay and am usually the buyer. However, now I?m selling some stuff and normally accept paypal as the only form of payment. There is an individual from the states who wants to pay with a money order. I?m not sure if I should accept. Is there anything I should know like type of money order, fraud, etc. I know my bank places holds on international cheques and MO?s for 15 business days. Do I wait for it to clear before shipping? What if the buyer claims the MO is stolen/lost?

Any help/info is appreciated. Thanks.

just make sure to specifiy that he send a bank money order or an INTERNATIONAL postal money order.  if it isn't international, you won't be able to cash it in canada.  also, if you're worried about it going through, don't ship the item until the money order is cleared.

good luck.

Take it from me (and Radio Guy).

Get an INTERNATIONAL MONEY ORDER.
It MUST say that or you're screwed.

Also, do NOT send the item out until the M.O. is in your account.
Tell the guy that as well - or make him use PayPal as your auction stated.
