I sold for 3 years before taking Paypal. I had a reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallly beligerent customer that forced my hand. Along with the fact that was when Paypal froze personal accounts to receive any more payments after the allotted $$$ amounts were received for the month.
I added the difference to my auction cost and have never looked back. ALL of my eBay IDs began selling like crazy!!!!
I have very few NPBs now and I have two different Paypal accounts to suit my needs.
I've never bought unless the seller accepted Paypal. (now wasn't that duplicitous? <smile>
Especially with the holidays coming..buyers don't want to have to send checks, money orders and more in the hopes they are received in time. Nor do they want to have a seller hold their merchandise till the payment clears.
Oh I accept Bidpay also...but not much action there in 2 years. Cashola, money orders and personal checks come in the mail..but they only make up about very little of my sales.
Just my two cents,
