Information on buying & selling safely ➜

Payment options

The payment options on the listing are selected by the seller. You can always propose alternate exchange and payment options.

  • When buyer and seller are meeting face-to-face to exchange and check the item, it may make sense for the buyer and seller to agree to payment on collection or payment on delivery
  • PayPal is ideal for low-value, peer-to-peer sales where payment protections apply
  • Trustshare is ideal for most transactions, especially when the buyer and seller can meet and the transaction value is greater than £/€/$ 250.
Good buyers and seller should be happy to use payment services that offer buyer and seller protections.

Buyer protections

The Trustshare escrow service offers the greatest buyer and seller protections and is ideal for higher value items where the buyer and seller are unable to meet to exchange.
