    I got clients who want me to ship item at them, they provided their card information. Is it okay if i buy the specific product and ship it at their address?

    You mean using their credit card or your own ?

    Generally you can ship purchases to wherever, provided to input the cardholders address etc then in the delivery options add the address for where you want it sending.

    Provided the cardholder details match as required, then there'll be no problem getting stuff delivered to a different address.

    I'd question the legality of this mate, something doesn't sound right here.
    If it was so straight forward, why don't they just do it themselves ?

    If something sounds too good to be true.........

    yea i am also feeling little bit weird. I mean legally there should not be problem about it.

    I run small telemarketing campaigns, sell laptops and different products from my warehouse. Some people prefer to just provide card info and just get charged over it. they hate hustle. Not sure what to do.

    If you're still going ahead with this, ensure anything physical you send to them is signed for fully and insured.
    Last thing you want is them to report the transactions as fraud, explain their IP is in xxx town, yet the card was used at yyyy town.

    We take card payments daily but we don't hold details on our servers / system, we use Worldpay and Stripe.
    It's upto you at the end of the day.

    yeah you were great help.

    I am still being sceptical over this. If they report it as a fraud, it might get me in trouble. Even if i try to hide my info use proxy/vps and all those stuff it's still going to be traceable. I think i am going to record every sales call, and mostly will ask them to make purchase own their own.

    OWhat sort of amounts are we talking about and how often ?
    How profitable is it for you ?

    One option ( just off the top of my head ) is to get an agreement/contract drawn up where they authorize you to act on their behalf in an official capacity as a buyer. That may work, but unless you know these people well, it still looks shady.

    I am about to open up office really soon, i'll appoint sales representatives so average at it's lowest we are talking about around 6-8 sales averaging 500-700$ per sale per customers and yet it's minimum.

    I know like agreement can really help but some people can do chargebacks easily so.... i am still weary about this.
