Anyone NOT use Paypal for BST?

We closed our Paypal account awhile ago and did not intend to use it anymore. So is there anyone on here who successfully sells or buys without a PP account?

TIA

Nope. PayPal is required for transactions, that way both the seller & buyer are covered.

This is correct.

If you are aware of another payment method that offers the same protection for both parties we'd be open to looking into it.

Thank you very much as somehow I missed knowing that rule! I had it in the past so I never needed to question it!

Dwolla is pretty similar..... Google "PayPal alternatives" and you will get a good list.

I have an account but I haven't made a transaction yet.

I have a cousin who uses "Square" extensively and I used that through her. It worked great.

I love square. My whole family uses it for just about everything. It's super useful and easy. The only downside I think is that it's not as easy for shipping as PayPal but still worth looking into. Especially if you're doing anything local. They have a business version but I haven't ever used it.

Idk, it's probably best to stick to PayPal unless the alternatives are significantly better. If one is better, best to be clear about why it's better so people understand the transaction is still safe and not sketchy.
