Hi all,

Just a quick question...

I am looking to try a new supplier but bank transfer I dont like doing on the first few times as like to make sure I am actually going to get my goods.

If I was to use a Paypal that I opened to just send payments am I asking for a problem or a limitation very soon?

Or has anyone got any other ideas on sending payments etc?

Thanks

Seanws30 - Im not familiar with moneybookers / moneygram etc wouldnt know how to use those etc. Only ever dealt with T/T and PP.

@GTB - Buying goods from a supplier in China - used the person quite a few times but paid via another PP. Obviously before coming across this website and learnt never to buy stock with PP...

Now T/T is ok however they give you details of their account and describe everything in a different way... for instance..

They give me an account number - However when I go to 'Send money overseas' it tells me to input an IBAN number.... also BIC Code - they call it a bank code... my bank tells me it should be 4 digits, my supplier tells me their's is 3.... makes everything slightly confusing thats why I wanted to find another payment method.

Also Swift codes I couldnt begin to understand after putting in all the information my supplier gave me as to why it wouldnt send due to numbers being shorter even tho thats their info.... :S

Might be me being dim...

They are phone accessories that I always deal with and will only be about 190 worth to start with...but paying with PP is that a big risk?

All advice please

WU is not safe

moneygram the same,once the recipient receives the money its gone

only use if you trust

The b2b site that I use has Escrow as a payment option, you can pay directly from your bank account / credit card etc and Escrow hold the money and only release it once you confirm you have received the goods and are happy with them.

That's the way I do it, It may cost me a few extra cents per item when buying this way, but I think it's definatly worth it for the peace of mind

Every site needs to be using Escrow I love it but when you find back street suppliers that are good to you and dont take these big methods only the T/T / WU ways but have dealt with them before you have to take that risk I suppose thats just business.

Lets see what happens
