PayPal and other Electronic Payments

Although checks are still the preferred method of payment for most rental homeowners, PayPal can be a quick and easy alternative, especially for last-minute or international bookings. PayPal allows you to accept either bank transfer or credit card payments.

Elizabeth Weedon and I sat down to record a podcast about accepting electronic payments, and we discussed whether they are a necessity.

Some questions we answer:

  • Should you accept electronic payments?
  • Who’s responsible for the fees associated with electronic payments?
  • Are there other options instead of PayPal?
  • Is a check in the mail still the recommended way to collect payments?

If you are looking for more information about PayPal, take a look at our blog post that dives into some of the fees associated with using the platform, as well as how it works with international payments.

    Paypal is probably the safest way to accept payments online. I usually don’t have to worry to much about fraud and I get my payments quickly. The only issue with Paypal is you need to let them know if you are going to have large sums of money flowing through the account. This is so they don’t freeze your account or flag it because they think you are scamming someone. Otherwise, I have had a great experience with them.
