How should I accept payment for RFD/online sales?
From what i understand PayPal can be charged back even if delivered and the item is undamaged, is it still the best method or are other methods superior?

Cash works for in person an i insist on it (i've had a few people offer e-transfer which i don't go for).

Just create a new email for transfers.

And make it auto-deposit so you don't need password etc. Once you get a etransfer, go to your bank account and verify it's good....then you can complete your half of the sale. I've been doing this and it's convenient.

Autodeposit is more secure than a password?

So the e-mail address does not have to be linked to the bank account if i can create one just to receive it?

Yes...and definitely more convenient as you don't have to do anything on the receiving end once setup

Setting up audotdeposit means your full legal name will be displayed to the sender.

How often will someone do this though? I'm guessing they can only use this excuse once to the bank, after that they will know he's commiting fraud. I'm not saying it's not possible but it's just really unrealistic because of all the hassle it will cause.Akitakara wrote: ↑ Setting up audotdeposit means your full legal name will be displayed to the sender.
On the otherhand, this protects you against someone cancelling an e-Transfer before you have a chance to deposit it, or if they provide you a bogus password.
Generally, e-Transfers can still be reversed though, if someone claims to their bank the account was compromised and the bank decides to step in. There's a few threads on this on RFD in the past.

Correct. Just your name from what I recall.

Yup. If someone compromises your email address and the sender puts a password in the notes field (this happens A LOT) then goodbye money.
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
