Can I pay via PayPal?

Paperclip is currently in the process of implementing a secure payment system and so currently the way you pay for items is 'cash on delivery' by default - which means meeting (in a secure, well-lit place) to pay for your items in cash from the seller. Please don't forget to read our safety tips!

That being said, if you are unable to meet with the seller to pay for and receive your goods, then you can pay via PayPal. 

In order to do this;

1. Message the seller via Paperclip to request their PayPal details along with any delivery costs- this is very important for your security as the messages act as a form of audit if there was ever a dispute after the transaction

2. Pay for the goods via PayPal, but DO NOT choose the 'pay friends and family' option as this is not covered by PayPal's in-built protection

3. Once you've paid the seller, contact them with your mailing address

Do not hestiate to report any suspicious activity or sellers requesting PayPal payment by 'friends or family' option. You can report this at
