just wondering if anyone accepts paypal payments. if someone orders a cake from you and you send them an invoice through paypal, do you bill them at the time they place their order or when the cake is delivered or picked up? when do you expect payment?

Yes, I accept PayPal (otherwise I couldn't accept credit cards). I need payment before I bake, so I invoice at the time the order is placed. Otherwise, you are handing over a cake/cookies and hoping they pay.

I do the same! I couldn't afford the rental fees for the credit card machine if I had one in my home, so Paypal is the next best thing. I know there are people out there that won't use it, but I have never had problems with it.

I use it also. I state on my ordering page that payment in full is due before their cake is created. I've been using PP for about 4 years now and have never had any problems with it.

Mom, I've been using Paypal for a few years now to accept credit card payments, and I just LOVE it! icon_biggrin.gif So do the folks who pay me -- I sell a lot to people in my office for at-work events, and they need to be able to use their corporate credit cards to pay me so they can get reimbursed. Paypal has made it possible for me to work with those folks. I think it's terrific!! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif
