PLEASE READ! In regards to paypal fees,payments and delivery confirmation!

This is a quick reminder that is it AGAINST paypal regulations to mark payments as "payment owed" when you are buying goods. This makes it against the rules here as well.

Payments MUST be marked as "goods" not services or anything else

You have no protection when paying by these other methods offered.

PLEASE report all threads that you see where seller is asking payment be marked as ANYTHING other than "goods". Report a thread/post by hitting the red exclamation mark in the top right hand corner of post.

Also, ALL packages MUST be sent with Delivery Confirmation. Delivery confirmation is to protect the SELLER and should be included in your price.

Last thing I need to touch on is the request that your buyer handles paypal fees. This is actually confusing for many buyers. Please,factor the fees in your asking price. You can always offer a discount if they buy more than one item. It is not the buyers responsibility to cover sellers fees.

Thank you for posting this!

The last part about asking for a buyer to cover fees is also AGAINST paypal regulations. It's so much easier just to factor it into the price before hand.

Oh, thanks for posting this! I recently bought something from someone who asked me to mark it "payment owed" and I forgot. It was my first transaction so I didn't know better, but now I'm so glad I forgot. Thank you!

Re: PLEASE READ! In regards to paypal fees,payments and delivery confirmation!

What does it mean when someone asks for 'Funded Paypal Only"? There have been many items I would be interested in purchasing but the thread says funded paypal. Since I do not know what it is I am unsure how to do it. Would someone mind pm'ing me please so I get the response? Much appreciated!
