How do I pay the seller?

Dealodeal is only the middleman for sellers to conduct auctions
and for bidders to bid on auctions.

Dealodeal is not involved in the actual monetary transaction between buyers
and sellers. We do not handle payments, guarantee transactions, provide escrow services, or
offer any buyer protection or seller verification.

Paymate is already accepted as direct payment options at Dealodeal.

If you already have a Paymate account, you can enable
direct pay, so that buyers/bidders automatically pay you directly through

Sellers may also opt to accept other forms of payment such as check or money
order or pay upon item pickup. These third party payment processors should
be listed in the auction comments section.

Dealodeal will not be held responsible for any fraud that may occur.

We recommend using one of the trusted third party payment processors listed
above, which will not only speed things up considerably but also provide you with
consumer protection.

Should I consider payments via Western Union or MoneyGram?

Dealodeal strongly discourages using wire transfer services
(such as Western Union and MoneyGram for example).

You should be very cautious to anyone offering payment option of Western Union,
MoneyGram, or any other wire transfer payment method. There is no way to get
a refund from these services if this turns out to be fraud. You are solely responsible for
any loss you incur if you pay by Western Union, MoneyGram or another wire transfer

Dealodeal highly recommends Paymate account or paymate payment gatewayusing your credit cards.

You should also be cautious for items that are being sold overseas or if you get
contacted by an overseas buyer wanting to pay more than what you are offering.
These are almost always fraudulent.
