Shermae I know of one vendor on eBay
who does take my check.... I subsequently check out his material every week. Otherwise I don't eBay
. I do Hip Stamps, again only with vendors who will either take cash or a check. Funny story a stamp I really wanted 539 came up on Hip with a vendor who only Paypals. I asked him if he would take cash, or a Certified check, postal money order....."no I only PayPal. " It sold for a lot less than what I would have offered. In 5 years of sending cash for $40 or under I have never lost a penny.
Almost every auction house I deal with prefers my check to PayPal or cc. It is what it is.
