I didn't mean to imply you were wrong about the live animal policy, James. Like Lucille mentioned, it is hard to keep up with PP's changes, and I thought you had new info that I wanted to be updated on. I guess I'm glad you were mistaken, though.

Yes, there is a manual card entry option on the Square app. I've not used it, and I think there is a ~0.5% extra fee for manual entry, but it is an option.

I've not used Square long enough to stumble on any real problems (so I'm not exactly promoting their service here, just giving factual info), but the app is slick and their card readers (I got a free swipe one, and then upgraded to a chip one I had to buy) work really well. Square gives you a debit card (like PP Business accounts get) so you can use your funds without having to give them a bank account number -- this has worked well, too.

Most buyers and sellers are not FFL's though, which means one side is paying transfer fees. It also doesn't work if the recipient of the firearm is a "prohibited person", and there are more than a few in the reptile trade.

For someone shipping to me there are no transfer fees, since I am an ffl and yes, I only ship to an ffl. I won't ship firearms to an individual.

Thanks to everyone again for your help with this!

I did see where Venmo is a subsidiary of PayPal, so if one is avoiding PP, Venmo is not one of the answers.

Yeah, sometimes it is REAL discouraging concerning the number of compromises we have to make with who we have to do business with just to keep our own businesses running, isn't it?

Yes it is. Had to change jeans, ice cream, soft drinks and financial resources...still have to hold my nose to buy other stuff, but there are sometimes no alternates.

If I can avoid Paypal, I will. Everything seems to be a risk one way or another for either the buyer or the seller. Best of luck
