Buying safely on United Baristas Marketplace
You can buy a item using your debit or credit card through United Baristas Marketplace.
Please note that the buy button appears on all listings, regardless of whether Stripe, PayPal, or neither payment option has been set up.
- Stripe payments benefit from the Payment Escrow service.
- PayPal payments are processed, but do not benefit from the United Baristas escrow service. Buyer and seller protections and obligations remain in place as part of the respective PayPal user agreements.
- If a seller has both Stripe and PayPal payment details entered, the buyer has an option of payment processor — but we encourage them to use Stripe.
- If no payment details have been entered by the seller, the buyer can contact the seller and request that they add their payment details to their United Baristas Marketplace account.
Good buyers should be happy to sign up to our payment services.
We strongly recommend that you do not pay the buyer outside of the United Baristas Marketplace platform (via bank transfer, for example) before receiving and checking the item(s), and do not benefit from the escrow service.
We recommend opting for Stripe as the payment processor so that you benefit from the United Baristas escrow service.
Your funds will be released to the seller once you have marked the transaction as complete.
You have 30 days from payment to dispute the item.
Transactions that are neither disputed nor marked as complete by the buyer are automatically completed and the seller is paid out after 30 days
