Why does PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com only recommend Paypal or Escrow.com?

Paypal and Escrow.com offer protection for the buyer and seller.  This includes verifying the funds and offering a mediation channel in the unlikely event of a dispute. Other payment methods do not offer this protection and are not recommended. Additionally, checks or transfers can sometimes be forged, so for safety, we don’t recommend them.


What are the fees for Paypal and Escrow.com and who pays them? 

Paypal fees are 2.9% +.30.  For a $1,000 item, this equals $29.30.  This fee is paid by the seller and covers the cost for paypal to safely manage the funds transfer and provide a resolution channel in the unlikely event of a dispute.

Escrow.com fees are 3.25% for standard service, for transactions $5,000 and under. For a $1,000 gown, the fee is $32.50.

Who pays for shipping?

Who covers shipping is negotiable, but typically the buyer pays it.

You can get an estimate of your shipping costs here, and then add it to your asking price for a final sale.

 

Can I estimate shipping charges in advance?

We don’t recommend estimating shipping charges until you know your buyer's location.  Shipping costs vary greatly based on location, so until you know where you buyer is located, there is the possibility of over or underestimating the actual cost.
