Ways to pay

Sellers display their accepted payment methods under 'Payment options' on their listing. If you win, you'll need to use one of the displayed options to pay.

Don’t use instant cash transfer services such as Western Union, BidPay, MoneyGrams, money orders or send cash in the post – these services are untraceable.
