Paypal. Never gift money. Its always best in the long run for someone to pay the fees if something does happen.

Rules I follow:

1. Look at RECENT feedback of potential seller, if good proceed. If bad don't buy from him.

2. Ask if he/she accepts Paypal. Money orders can be stolen but can be used I just don't trust them. If yes proceed, if no don't buy

3. Ask for sellers personal info after a price has been determined, ex phone number, address, and confirm these by calling the number. License if you want to.

4. Send Paypal money as a purchased item, not a gift! I repeat not a gift. It cost roughly a dollar more to cover your *** in case of a theft. When gifted you cannot receive your money back. Period.

5. Make a video of you opening the box so that any flaws or not as described items can be seen and shown that they were not done by you.

6. If all checks out, enjoy your item that you purchased and enjoy the game of paintball bud.

Hope I helped, take care bud.

^ what he said

Ive bought a couple things and havent had any problems. I also never gift , but if the Seller's Rep is above 100+/0/0 i usually just trust the directions they put on the thread such as PM with what you want to purchase and etc some just answer with an email address .

Paypal is really the best (don't gift it unless you trust the seller).

Money orders are pretty awful since there is no way to track it and confirm the money got to where it is supposed to be. I bought something that cost $15 once but had to pay by money order since that is what the seller wanted (and I couldn't find the exact same pack anywhere else). The guy stopped communicating with me after I sent it. Pack finally came in a month later, I thought I was scammed.

PayPal ONLY!

Do NOT send "Gifted" ever. "Gifting" money literally means giving away money as a gift.
Never send Money Orders. They are easily stolen and there is no getting that money back

If you are local to the seller, FTF cash transaction is always the best way to go. but online, paypal is your best bet. this goes for anything you buy online through a forum.

Paypal and don't gift it so you can get it back still. Always check previous feedback also.

most people on here are pretty legit. and in that case that something does get stolen, the person in question always gets their **** torn apart because everyone on this website finds out. i remember one time before i got permd on my original account, this guy stole from a computer programmer or some ****, guy got pissed and hacked his computer. Stole his credit card info, ****ed his credit and released his bank statements/address/all personal info to the public and didn't delete them until he got his **** back. was ****in lol

That's actually not true. Many people have gotten things stolen here and never got any restitution. People may complain or mark someone down as a person no one should deal with but you can always come back under a new name.
That's way best way to protect yourself is always sending Paypal (not gifted) or doing a Face-to-Face transaction if possible. Checking someone's feedback is a good thing to do as well

Everyone has already answered your question but just incase

Pay pal is usually what everyone accepts
Don't buy from someone if the deal seems fishy
Make sure they have decent feedback, otherwise I usually try and get them to ship first
Don't gift the payment, take the tiny fee they charge you so you can open a case if someone tries scamming you
