So I'm doing a transaction on Ebay and they offered to send money order?
depending on the distance of the buyer, sometimes you get the money in your pocket quicker with money order then with paypal.Originally Posted by tim teufel
ehh takes too long. i like my money right away
cash it at the bank and wait 10-14 days for it to clear. after that time it will basically be known that it was a legit money order.Originally Posted by Luong1209
I've been told there are some fakes out there and if that ever happens:
1) You cash it out
2) USPS finds out it's a fake
3) They come after you for the money
That's why I'm hesitant...Although it appears that they have new MOs (Maybe a new way of avoiding fraud?).
i prefer receiving them when im the seller because that means i don't get hit with paypal fees, and i always make the buyer send them with a tracking number so they can't complain.Originally Posted by jimmybeanz
in 2010 there really aren't a lot of reasons to be using money orders, ESPECIALLY for biz transactions over the net. if you think a money order is better than paypal, you deserve any "L's" you get.
