    I need a paypal alternative that doesnt offer refunds.

    I've had about 5 people in the last month try to get a refund after I had already provided the product. Im not ripping anyone off in anyway, but I cant have these scammers continue doing this so I need a new payment network that wont provide refunds.

    paypal has bad refunds
    moneybookers does refunds
    payoneer I believe does refunds

    I suppose I could integrate squarecash or something. Any ideas on an alternative?

    I believe you will not find a provider that does not do refunds.
    The truth is there are more sellers scamming then there are buyers, just browse to the shit list section and you will see.

    As soon as you start demanding payments through a non-refundable method like bitcoins or western union, your customers are going to start to wonder if you're scamming them and your sales will plummet... I can't say that 100% for sure, but when I'm a buyer, that's what I feel when I see that.

    hm, I gotcha, true.

    I just feel like I'm getting the same people scamming me and of course paypal leans toward the buyer, so Im just out the money.

    well, I guess Im just stuck for now lol. Even if I used squarecash, people who wanted to scam me would simply cancel the transaction on their mastercard and Id still get stuck or charge back. ugh

    any other ideas on paypal alternatives that dont lean towards refunding the scammy buyers?

    What products are you selling? As there maybe other options for you.
    Also maybe you need to look at the products quality, there will always be a small minority of customers that want items for free and will charge back, but if it a high percentage of sales are getting refunded then it may be an indication that something is not right.

    bitcoin is something you can offer. Even if a gateway doesn't offer refund the customer will contact the bank and reverse the payment anyway.. So, there's no gateway that will offer you such thing.
