I'm taking an order from a woman who is located out of the country and was wondering if anyone knew of a secure reliable payment method for taking her order. I read the problems people have been having with PayPal and wanted to see if there are any other good ones.
I live overseas and tried buying something from a woman in the states. Paypal didnt work out so I just used western union and thankfully she was ok with it. there is a fee though. Theres also bank transfer...
We've had a few international orders and have accepted PayPal without any problems. Our PayPal account is linked to a bank account with very little money in it, and we always transfer the balance out of PP as soon as the customer pays. If you are using PP on a limited basis and are careful with it you should be fine.
I have also taken orders from outside of Spain (one from a user on CC ), from the US and also Mexico. They have paid through Paypal and I have had no problems whatsoever. I did request on all occasions they pay the full amount up front.
