Chapter 22. Online Auctions > Determining What Types of Payments to Accept

Determining What Types of Payments to Accept

When you’re listing an item for auction at eBay, you can choose what types of payment you’ll accept from the winning bidder. This may seem like an easy decision, but each different type of payment needs to be handled differently on your end.

Cash

As a seller, there’s nothing better than opening up an envelope and finding a few crisp new bills inside. Unfortunately, sending cash through the mail is not one of the smartest things a buyer can do; cash is too easily ripped off, and virtually untraceable. You can ask for cash payment, of course, but unless the selling price is extremely low (under $5), don’t expect buyers to comply.
