    What's the most secure payment method to receive from a buyer, when using gun auction sites such as gunbrokers.com?

    A credit card will give you the option of a charge back should something go very wrong. But postal money orders are also very good choices.

    If you are the seller and want a secure payment, it is hard to beat a USPS money order.

    If you want to accept a personal check, advise the buyer that the item will have a 10 day hold on shipping while the check clears.

    I have read stories online about PayPal freezing accounts because of gun transactions.
    Best to stick with USPS money orders.

    I can directly integrate your gunbroker or gunauction set up so that when a customer buys a firearm from you they pay right then and there. Then when you ship to the FFL you will also have a signed copy of the transaction that way. Makes it really easy and the customers we have that use it, love it.

    Just an idea if you are looking for ease of use.

    So have I and it's NEVER happened to me. I have also used my 'Bill Me Later' line of credit function with the same results - no 'freezing' experienced
