Re: Payment Service
In Response To: Payment Service ()


I have bought and sold a lot of watches from other forums such as reddit. I always use PayPal “Goods & Services” which is pretty much what you described. I believe the seller pays a 3% premium on the sales price. The purchaser in return gets buyer protection from PayPal:

However I believe people do offer wire transfers to sellers who have a strong transaction history and good references within the community.

Hope this helps!
