Accepted Payments Policy


Plusto’s payments policy is an integral part of creating the secure trading environment that it promotes. Plusto does not insist on payment methods; however it may choose to do so in the future. Plusto does however strongly encourage sellers to only accept certain forms of payment.

These methods are not only convenient to use, but they also offer buyers and sellers protection against fraud and theft of financial data. See Buyer Protection and Seller Protection for more information.

Sellers with their own merchant credit card processing account, and those that use a third party credit card processor, may offer buyers the option of paying online or by phone. Plusto will continuously evaluate new payment services and methods, and assess whether they are appropriate for our marketplace.

Offline payments do not offer the same level of convenience or security as online payments. Sellers may however offer acceptance of most valid financial instruments including personal checks, bank guaranteed cheques or money orders.

Plusto does not recommend that buyers or sellers accept cash or cash transfers. These methods do not have any proof of payment and there is seldom a remedy when transaction problems are experienced.

Why does Plusto have this policy?

Safety and convenience are at the core of Plusto’s policies toward payments. This policy is designed to promote safe online shopping, and to encourage online payment methods that are safe, easy to use, reliable, and offer high levels of protection for users. The policy also attempts to preserve some flexibility for users that still prefer offline payment methods.
