Curious how others are conducting transactions and if I'm in the minority. For mods from "known" sellers I don't have a problem using Paypal and sending as "gift". For sellers new to modding, I prefer using paypal "goods" so I'm protected in case there is a chance of scam.
Machines, I have sold I always only accepted cash or once bank wire transfer. Paypal "goods" a seller can really get screwed as I learned on a non-pinball related sale on eBay - Paypal sides with buyer immediately and money can get held up for awhile.
I've had a few locals want to pay via paypal for pinball games I sold in past and rejected - cash only. I'm wondering if I should have accepted as "gift" as Paypal really doesn't freeze accounts if someone complains long after the sale in the "gift" mode. I think.
What are others thoughts? I was selling a few higher priced items on Craigslist and someone is pushing to use paypal to pay and I'm standing my ground - cash only. Am I a dinosaur?
