Subj: Re: [kl] Another Paypal Question

(presently) Paypal does not extend Address Confirmation or Credit card
Verification to countries outside the U.S.

Per Paypal - "A special note about shipping internationally: If you choose
to ship internationally you do so outside of the Seller Protection Policy.
Furthermore, shipping to a country not on the list of PayPal approved
countries is a violation of our service and may result in termination of
your account."

Therefore, while international members may wish to use a credit card, few
Paypal Sellers will accept the credit card payment as it can be (easily)
charged back due to use unscrupulous individuals. Thus, Paypal provides _no
assurance services_ to the Paypal Seller who is greatly at risk.

Paypal will accept a cash transfer (deposit) which they keep "on account" &
which may be utilized much as a debit card would be. It's NOT a good deal
for anybody except Paypal -- who REALLY make money on the float this way.

Out of U.S. purchasers should pursue wire transfers where the cost is not

PS - When paying for SERVICES, as opposed to GOODS, a credit card may be
used since that type of transaction would not require the shipment of goods
to a foreign/non-U.S. country.
