Default Is it worth renting a PO Box?

Well I'd prefer if everyone just used credit card, but many want money orders even though I say I don't take mailed payment.

Is it worth it to rent a PO Box to take payments I think they're $10 or $15 a month.

Default Good question..

I use a UPS Box, which doesn't have all the shortcomings of a PO Box. Fedex and UPS, for example, will not deliver to a PO Box.

Also, you can sort of disguise it is a box, because you don't say PO Box in the address. You say just box, or PMB, or Number.

As far as having people send you checks, that is a bit of a problem. EBAY lists your address as the address to mail payments to etc. even on the invoice.

I do not know how EBAYers deal with this when they have multiple accounts. Some people here just say, "buy a new computer", when you have to clean up your cookies, like that is a solution for every time you want a new EBAY account. Yup, spend $500 every time you want a new EBAY account, and if you screw up, just do it again. Resell your PC on EBAY. Right.

Or others say to get multiple boxes. A box here costs over a hundred bucks a year. You going to go pay 1K for 7-8 of them? I don't think so.

Perhaps you could work something out with the UPS place to have box numbers that don't exist there routed to your box for a discount. Not sure, but I know I might find it sketchy if you told me to mail my check to some PO Box not registered with EBAY.

ebay barely reads email. Think it would read this site?

Unbelievable!! I just checked : Yahoo! Auctions - Buy and Sell Sports Cards, Coins, Collectibles or New Items

and it is true! Yahoo Auctions is down the drain. Ugh. Ebay is really a monopoly!
