When paying for product by check, is this a virtual check, or do I have to physically mail a check and wait for that to go through and clear before the order is shipped? I'd prefer to avoid the latter, but like avoiding the 3% fee you'd pay for PayPal. I'm sure margins are tight enough as is.

Thanks

The system expected you to mail a paper check, but I'm willing to try a virtual one if you know how that works.

I didn't say this, I don't recommend this, but if you were to mark it as check and then paypal money directly to us as a family member that avoids their 3%, but it isn't what they want you to do. but I couldn't stop ya.

I don't know how to set up virtual checks, especially from the vendor side (there might be legal requirements or specific things to set them up,). Basically, the way they work is that the buyer supplies the bank routing number and account number, and usually has some kind of "electronic signature", sometimes typing your name or whatever. Then, somehow (black magic is my guess), the vendor sends this info to the bank and funds are disbursed. For this order I'll just do PayPal. Might be something to look into though.

Thanks

A lot of banks offer a "bill payment" service of some type. They call it different things, but it usually ends up they transfer funds electronically. Cliff, that is something we (ok, you), should look to see how we can make that easy for people to do in order to send us payment.

I don't know that we can qualify for epayment from the bank, but any bank will cut a paper check for you.

so atleast you don't have to write a check and take it to the post office. they will do it for you.
