Money orders on e-bay

A potential buyer asked if I would accept a money order for a pair of boots I have for sale on e-bay. I've never dealt with anything other than paypal...is this safe to do on e-bay? I'm guessing it would be more of a risk to the buyer than the seller, correct? Any help/info would be appreciated! Thanks!

Correct it is more of a risk for the buyer, as long as they do not send you a fake money order. Best way to avoid that issue is ask for a USPS money order only and cash it at the post office. They will give you cash so there will be no issue with a bad money order at your bank. As long as it is USPS you will be fine.

Thanks Mike! I'm actually in Canada, and this buyer is from Canada as well. I'm guessing that there's probably Canada Post money orders as well that are similar to USPS ones you guys have.

Unfortunately I don't know much about that. However if they work the same as a US money order than you will be fine. When you cash it at the post they give you cash after verifying the authenticity of the money order. As long as this is the case you are ok

I have a few repeat Canadian buyers that send me money orders all the time and they are very similar to US ones. (They are obtained at Canada Post).

Technically money orders are no longer allowed on ebay. (Which is just a way for them to get all the money from Paypal transactions)

^ that's actually a US policy. They still allow bank transfers and money orders in most other countries.

Accepted Payments Policy

Canada allows both.
