Exclamation Allow Users to Buy your Ad via Paypal Immediately?

I placed a ad for a class A MH, what the heck is the "Allow Users to Buy your Ad via Paypal Immediately?"

I do paypal and ebay and I guess I'm just stupid.

I'm not too sure that option is really available.

I'll check with our support tomorrow.

p.s. even it is a valid option, never use PayPal as it's a favorite of scammers.

We have used pay pal for years and never a problem. Been scammed using a gas pump, hotel and various other places but not pay pal.

Do you have a "Buy it Now" option on your listing. Sounds like eBay is suggesting you should.

Been using eBay/Paypal for years and not one problem with the services. Have had to deal with an idiot or two.

"Allow Users to Buy your Ad via Paypal Immediately?"

This is an option, but we strongly recommend it NOT be used.

I have used PayPal for many of my transactions.

I particularly like there Security

I ordered a door panel for a 2004 automobile and I had not heard from the vendor. I called PayPal. They stated to give it a few more days and if it did not arrive they would refund all my money.

Not much better than that.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

....and therein is how the RV scam works.

Buyer pays you via PayPal for your RV.

Buyer has third party "Agent" take delivery of your RV on his behalf.

Buyer complains to PayPal that he paid for the RV, but seller did not produce RV.

PayPal reverses payment as unknown "Agent" has RV, not buyer.

You (seller) have lost your RV and your money.

I've never understood the reason for Paypal. To use your credit card?

Even if it's not a scam, PayPal will take a percentage of your money just for your convenience of using their service. That's how they make their money.
I've used PayPal a lot and never had a problem and find it very convenient for buying stuff.
But the seller has to pay a percentage of his sales.

66, I love ebay and paypal

Always check the ebay rating especially when dealing with large amounts of $$$$

I would sure demand a notarized letter from buyer if 3rd party picked it up, plus what about a title transfer.

Only some one very stupid would pay more then 10% with Paypal, as they do take a % of payment. As always, buyer and seller beware
