In reply to: A heads-up regarding using PayPal for multiple items in one transaction. posted by Maureen on October 27, 2002 at 02:49:25:

For a long while we were able to use PayPal for credit cards and
also except other means of payment such as ckecks.
Recently they fixed the loophole which alowded us to display
anything other then JUST PayPal.
So now I have to find some way to continue to offer other options.
Its hard to go wrong with the price but many of my customers prefer
to not use Credit. Recently I have had to asked folks useing credit
cards to go to the extra trouble to email me so I can send them a
request for money.
This is far from ideal for many reasons!

If any of you know a better way to set it up on or before the PayPal
shopping cart order page -to inlude an option to link to a check
order page that *doesnt link you instantly to PayPals* page OR if
you have a tip for an inexpensive alternative to processing credit
cards I am in dire need. Thanks!!!
or eamil me privatley if you wish

: Just some info for anyone using PayPal and purchasing multiple
: from a single seller in one order with funds in their PayPal
: or echecks:
: PayPal indicates in their User Agreement that they suggest
: only single items in a given transaction. That suggestion should
: truly be taken seriously. If there is ever a situation when you
: order multiple items in a single order and receive only part of
: order, PayPal will consider the transaction as a complete and
: successful one and you really have no recourse beyond filing the
: Buyer's Complaint which will result in your being notified that
: received your goods if the seller can show that they shipped your
: package that was delivered to you address. It won't matter if you
: ordered 50 items and the seller only sent you one. Just proof
that a
: package was delivered to you from the seller after you placed your
: initial order will get the complaint resolved in the seller's
: and closed.
: Some sellers seem to know this...Cedarvale is one such...and you
: be taking a risk with your funds with them and any seller who
: not to provide you with what you paid for. It seems it is pretty
: safe to make purchases with a credit card because your credit card
: company will provide you with some safeguards. But through
: you have no such safeguards or protection if paying through them
: funds in your PayPal account or with echecks.
: I am posting this because I know a lot of folks here use PayPal to
: pay for orders and are often likely to make an order of multiple
: items. Not a good thing it seems unless you are paying by credit
: card. Making separate orders for each item is the only way to
: protect yourself from sellers willing to ship you only one item
: though you ordered many in the single transactions. The separate
: orders for each item...and therefore separate transactions for
: item...allows PayPal to request proof of shipment and delivery for
: each item/transaction and if proof of shipment and delivery of
: item/transaction is not provided to them, you will receive a
: Well, you will receive a refund if the seller still has funds in
: their account. That is another story altogether. So yep...if you
: purchase multiple items, you are ultimately better off with 50
: separate transactions when there is a problem with your order and
: seller won't provide you with a refund or deliver your goods.
: Crazy...but true.
: This is certainly not a reflection on any of the sellers here who
: accept PayPal. It is certainly also not a "buy from us only"
: statement. Just that I personally have made transactions with the
: folks here and none of them have ever fallen into the category of
: sellers willing to take your money and not deliver your goods. It
: also not a "don't buy from Cedarvale" statement. Some folks have
: posted about good and successful transactions with them. This is
: more about some things you might want to think about and things to
: prior to making the transactions in order to avoid a hassle down
: road.
: The best bet is to purchase from sellers you know. But if
: from sellers you don't know, just purchase in ways that protect
: and provide you with some recourse. I think this is important
: because henna artists are frequently seeking out new sources for
: different products on the web and can tend to purchase small
: of lots of items...and lots tend to like to use PayPal as a way to
: make payments.
: I've stumbled upon some other ways to use PayPal or similar
: safely and to reduce your risk that I will be glad to share with
: anyone who asks through email.
