    I want to bid on chickens and use my paypal account.

    1. is sending payment difficult to figure out?

    2. is there anything I should be concerned about when ordering chickens, chicks or eggs?

    3. should I be concerned when the seller says "no refunds"?

    4. have you ever ordered chicks, chickens, or eggs?

    5. how did it go?

    Thanks,

    Rancher Hicks

    I have oredered eggs and paid through paypal. It isn't difficult, you just select "send funds" or something like that. Just make sure you type their e-mail in correctly. I triple check it. Most egg sellers say no refund - it's pretty standard because eggs can get very manhandled by the post office. IF you are willing to take that risk then go for it. I've had good and bad experiences but none were the sellers fault, just poor handling by the P.O.

    I have never ordered chicks or birds though.

    I've found paypal to be extremely easy to use. I used it with a debit card, so basically I just entered my information and paypal took the money out of my debit card and transferred it over. Very, very easy!

    I've been contemplating order from Green Fire and I want to make sure I have everything set up before I do.

    I love paypal. I payed the gardener who helped with DD wedding and the photographer also. There are alot of web sites that take paypal. Paypal also is very concerned about your satisfaction with your product. Refunds go smoothly also. I am only a buyer not a seller.

    I do order books on line but most just take my CC. I figure if I want to order eggs or chicks on here it would be easier to just use PP. Though most will let me send a check. I take my rep here very seriously. A good reputation is better to be had than fine riches.

    Thanks,
