As the Listia community grows, we need to continually evolve and improve our rules and policies to protect members and create as safe and enjoyable a marketplace as possible. Today we’re introducing some more specific guidelines surrounding how shipping payments should be made between buyer and seller when auctions have fixed or flat rate shipping.
- Shipping payments are now limited to PayPal, Google Wallet, check, money order and cash.
- Sellers can specify which of the above methods they support in their listing, but may not add additional payment methods not allowed by Listia, and may not specify “Cash Only” (sellers must accept at least one of the other methods as well).
- When sending payment through PayPal, Google Wallet, check or money order, your credits are now protected by Listia Assurance in the event there’s a problem with the shipping payment being received.
While we always encourage sellers to offer free shipping, we understand that it is not suitable for all sellers and all items. For these situations, we hope that these updates make both paying for and receiving shipping payments as simple and worry-free as possible!
