    Hey,

    I have a couple websites that I don't use anymore and I'd like to sell them. However, I cannot accept payments via paypal in my country. I've never flipped a website before and I don't really know how payment is made, so, do I need paypal or is there an alternative?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    yea Paypal is usually the most common payment proc for flipping sites.. I would suggest maybe find a friend that you can trust that has a paypal account and have him wire you the money.

    No, you don't need Paypal.

    For selling my sites I generally get paid via Wire transfer. Write up a contract to make them feel comfortable.

    Or use Escrow.com - that's very safe but quite costly.

    Other options are Western Union, MoneyGram, MoneyBookers, Xoom, Check, Cash.

    Try avoid GayPal if you can :)
