Recommended Payment Methods

Recommended Payment Methods

Use a secure payment method and your transaction will be fully protected. 

For buyers, this means you'll be 100% covered if your item isn't shipped, isn't authentic, or isn't exactly as described in the seller’s listing.  So you won't have to worry about anything - except planning your perfect wedding.

For sellers, it means your payment will arrive safely and securely, before your item is shipped.

Choose the secure payment option that's right for you.

 

 

Paypal

Use when the transaction is a final sale and/or the buyer wants to use a credit card for purchase.

Escrow.com

Use with a seller accepting returns. Also recommended for international transactions.

What It Is

Quick, globally-known, secure online payment method.

Safe, secure service that holds funds in escrow until transaction is complete. Buyer is able to return the item, for any reason, during an agreed upon inspection period.

How Buyers Are Protected

Paypal Purchase Protection fully covers you, up to $20,000 if the item isn't shipped, isn't authentic or isn't otherwise as described.

Buyer has a guaranteed inspection period during which she can inspect the item and return it for any reason.

How Sellers Are Protected

Paypal ensures funds are verified before they are placed in your account.  Your stated return policy will apply to the transaction.

 Escrow.com verifies the buyer’s funds before approving seller to ship item.

 Should the item be returned, the seller must receive the item back and confirm its condition before funds are returned to seller.

Tips   Buyers
  1. Have the seller “request funds” or create an invoice.  (Don't use the friends + family option or you won't have access to paypal's buyer protection). 
  2. Pay for the purchase in a single transaction.  (Paypal Purchase Protection won't cover transactions paid in installments).

 

Sellers

  1. Log into Paypal directly to verify funds have been received.
  2. Ship with insurance for your asking price, only to the address on the paypal invoice, and require a signature on delivery.
  3. Ensure your listing fully and accurately describes all of your items imperfections (no matter how small).   Take photos prior to shipping to provide a documentation record.
  1. We recommend a 48-hour inspection period.
  2. Buyers can only pay with check (which take up to 14 days to clear) or wire transfers (for which your bank may charge an additional fee). Credit cards are not accepted for apparel purchases.
 

 

Remember, PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com never recommends payment with personal or cashier's check, wire transfer, gift cards such as Amazon. With these methods there is no buyer or seller protection.
