Is Selling and Buying on vFlea.com safe/secure?

Yes. There are a number of reasons that make for a safe and secure experience on vFlea.com

  1. vFlea.com uses PayPal for all payments.
  2. vFlea.com does not store any of your private financial details.
  3. All sellers use a PayPal email address before any item is available for purchase. Why is this important? This should give potential buyers an added sense of trust that the seller just hasn't joined the site adhoc and started listing bogus items.
  4. With every completed transaction vFlea requires that the buyer and seller give feedback on the completed transaction. This feedback can be seen by all buyers and sellers. Why is this relevant? Because it allows the sellers and buyers to read a history of feedback which will be helpful information prior to making any decision in purchasing or accepting offers on items. If the feedback is not positive for a buyer or seller then you can choose to not do business with them.
  5. Even with PayPal handling the payment transaction and vFlea.com storing limited personal information which is only your name, PayPal email and your address, vFlea.com still uses its secure 2048 bit encryption certificate on specific pages like login, signup, buy now and useradmin. What does this really mean? It means the vFlea.com still takes extra security steps to ensure that when your information is being passed from your computer to our web servers that it's done over a secure connection.

What is the process of buying/selling an item.

There are three scenarios:

  1. Haggle offer Accepted -
    1. When the seller accepts a haggle offer the user is notified that their haggle offer has been accepted.
    2. At this point the buyer and seller will be able to communicate with pre-defined messages until the payment is made.
    3. The buyer selects the proper shipping/local pickup based on what the seller choose as valid delivery methods.
    4. The buyer pays for the item.
    5. The item is updated and both the buyer and seller will see the current status in the My Admin section.
    6. At this point the buyer and seller will be able to openly communicate on the accepted off discussion page.
    7. The buyer and seller will see relevant notifications and view an agreement that will display all order details and shipping or pickup locations
    8. Ship or pick up items
    9. Mark transaction complete and provide feedback.
  2. Barter Offer Accepted

How do I get paid?

When a buyer clicks Buy Now or you Accept an Offer for an item listed the buyer will be directed to PayPal.com with all the information needed to pay for the item. Once the buyer clicks pay on PayPal and the payment is accepted your funds will be deposited to your PayPal account. You will also see a subsequent payment of 3 percent of the sale price sent to vFlea.com.
