Hi becky

Right now the payment options with SynthaSite's online store feature are PayPal or credit card. Your buyers would be able to choose which one they wanted to pay with. PayPal handles all the legal issues for you in the same way that eBay does if you were to use their service.

In order to accept credit card transactions directly on your site, you would need a merchant account, which is expensive and complicated to set up.

If you want to take money orders on your site you would need to make your own arrangements for this. You could create a page explaining how people could pay with this option and give them a way to contact you.

As a matter of interest, ebay no longer allows money orders or payment by check. See: http://pages.ebay.com/sell/August2008...

I hope this helps. Good luck with your online store. Let us know if you have any further questions.
