How Do People Pay Me?

Second Handtack Online does not currently offer any online payment process. It is for the buyer and seller to decide on a mutually agreeable method of payment. We do however offer some important advice on how to avoid problems when dealing with strangers, which can be found below.
Face to Face is Best:
Where possible, meet face to face to see the item and exchange payment. When meeting a stranger, always ensure there is someone else with you or meet in a public place. Don't take large amounts of cash with you when meeting someone you don't know.
Unless you are paid in cash, always wait for payment to clear before handing over goods. Remember, in some situations (particularly overseas payments) a payment could still be withdrawn by the bank after it has cleared. Talk to your bank for more information on this.
If you are being paid cash, study the notes for signs of counterfeit by feeling the paper, studying the printing, checking the watermark and the metallic thread. More information on checking for counterfeit money is at the Bank of England web site If you are sending an item through the post, always obtain proof of posting and ensure the parcel is adequately insured against loss up to the full value of the item. The Post Office provides a "Certificate of Posting" for free, giving compensation for low value items.
If you are receiving money through PayPal, ensure you meet the requirements of their seller protection scheme. This includes retaining proof of delivery that can be tracked online. If you are receiving money through PayPal or other online payment service, don't rely on an email confirmation that you have received funds as this may have been faked. Always log into your account to confirm this by typing the address directly into your browser (don't follow links in the email). Also note that PayPal does NOT hold funds pending delivery of an item.
Please don't let common sense be clouded by what looks like an unbelievable bargain. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Please take a moment to read the following tips which will help you stay safe when dealing with strangers.
If you make a payment before receiving an item, you risk losing that money if the item never arrives or is not as described. If you have to make payment before receiving the item, consider paying via PayPal who will often provide compensation should you not receive the item or if it is significantly not as described.
It pays to have an HPI check when purchasing a second hand vehicle. This check will help you determine whether a vehicle has been clocked, stolen or is a repaired insurance write off.
If you see any suspicious activity on Second Handtack Online , please report it to us.

Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
