    I have search on flippa but cant seem to find the answer.

    What payment methods can you use on flippa.com.

    I am banned from paypal so will not be able to use that one and was wondering which other alternatives there was.

    Thanks

    When asking "what payment methods you can use on flippa" I assume you want to know what payment methods you can use when PAYING flippa (i.e. their service fees)? In this case, the answer is paypal and credit card.

    If you were talking about receiving money from the buyer of your site, though, then it's completely up to you. Flippa do NOT mediate any financial transactions so it's 100% up to you and the buyer to figure out how to transfer the funds. While PayPal and Escrow are most popular options, many mid- to high-end sites are paid by wire and some people even use Western Union.

    I once sold a website on Flippa and got the money using Wire transfer but the seller was telling me that the Wire transfer fee was so costly in the US. Paypal would be the best option if its considerably a lesser amount

    I use WU sometimes - but I tend to give buyers a few choices. Write a contract to protect yourself too.

    Xoom.com is another one I've used before.
