Send Payment Quickly and Safely

It’s your money, and you can do anything you want with it. That said, I don’t want to see any of you stuffing dollar coins up your nose or sending cash through postal mail.

When deciding how to pay for an auction you’ve won, or when choosing an auction in the first place, look for any payment method that can be funded by a credit card. Although some people are downright terrified of the prospect of transmitting credit card numbers over the Internet, credit cards are indeed the safest way to pay online because you can dispute any charge on your statement.
