Payment Method?

I'm hoping to sell my A-frame soon (I have it posted in RV Trader) and need advice on which payment method to accept. When I bought the camper, I used a certified check from my credit union. The person who's interested mentioned using his PayPal account, but I'm not sure using PayPal is a good idea.

Anyone have some advice? Thanks in advance.

cash or a certified bank check, I do not recommend using paypal or a personal check for a purchase like this.

I personally would stay away from that sounds fishing, nothing like cash in hand. Even certified checks are kind of fishy now days from what I hear.

True, I do know a few folks that got burned with a "certified bank check" when it came back to be fake. Cash is best, if that's real

You might also incur fees to use PayPal.

I would stay away from paypal (fees, refunds,a hold/wait times) and if you accept a check your bank will put a hold on it, with a check I would not release the RV or title until the hold is over and the funds are cleared, this can sometimes can take up to 10 days.

If the guy has money in his PayPal it takes one day to have it deposited into his checking, then he can give you cash.

Personally I like to use PayPal whenever I can.

So far it's safe and reliable.

I like PP because I can use my credit card to pay for things without actually giving my CC number out. I don't even think I have a checking account hooked into PP.

I have bought several items from members of this forum using my PayPal account to transfer money to their PayPal accounts... plus I've bought much of the mods/equipment for my trailer using PayPal. Now and then you'll find that the people who recommend against using PayPal have never had any dealings with it.

Don't get me wrong Pay Pals is not bad but not fail safe, you will incur fees because you're the seller.
And after your trailer leaves with the customer he could go home and put a hold on the transaction from Pay Pals for any one particular reason.
