    @mc No worries!

    @Butch: Yeah, thanks for reminding me! Dave had mentioned something similar. My father is a hobbyist that finds and imports collector quality shotguns. I should figure out what he uses for it.

    +1, hope you find something else that works. Maybe appeal PP after some time?

    I've used Gpal (formally gun pal) with good results. they are a bit slower but seem to be keeping people happy.

    What about a USPS money order mailed?

    Are you married? You could probably sign up an account in your wife's name. Or just for the limited times you use paypal for knives, just do it through a buddies account. Just have the buyer send the money to their account and get cash from your friend.

    Chase has a service called Quick Pay that works like PayPal (you can send or receive money from anyone with an email address) - except it's FREE.

    If you don't have a Chase account, you have to jump through a few hoops - just like you have to when you first sign up for PayPal. I've only used it once to send a payment, but it worked just fine - and it's FREE.

    I tried to use it for a couple of ebray sales recently, but the buyers had already hit the PayPal instant pay button before I could send them a Quick Pay request for payment, so I don't know how well it works when you are requesting a payment.

    I was one of those, and felt that paypal had too strong a grip on person to person transactions. I'm glad visa is stepping into the arena, and soon to follow, many others.

    Guys, seriously. It's not a big deal. I'm just curious if there are others things out there that people actually use. Like I said, I just want to figure out what will be easiest for people if I can't do paypal.

    Leaders so far are Chase, Amazon and probably Visa if that ever launches, simply because it's quite likely that people already have easy access to these, but just don't know about them! But if all I'm trying to do is figure out if people would be willing to use something other than Paypal, I can always just try to sell some stuff and see! I think that would be the best approach, really.

    Thanks for the info guys! I never would have found the Visa or Chase things.

    I don't know about banks in the US, but my Canadian bank has online services and I can send an Interac money transfer to anybody with an email address, for a cost of $1.
