That's a pretty good rule but, IMO, the best rule is no rule (or at least, fewer rules) at all.
As a seller, I stopped promoting and accepting most Paypal payments years ago. True, Paypal is convenient and "safe" in some ways but I have grown to resent the amount of influence that credit card companies are exerting in the realms of commercial transaction and ultimately, personal relations. So, I continue to state upfront that my preferred method of payment is genuine USPS money order via snail mail.
Why? Mostly because, I hate most banks and credit card companies. BASICALLY, I think they are greedy scumbags.
And yet, I have managed to accrue a long history of excellent seller feedback in a number of venues because I offer great bargains, I package my items well, and I am open and honest in my dealings and communications. I continue to maintain that a personal phone call can tell me most of what I need to know about any businessman's character.
It also helps that, usually, I am in no hurry to sell. I know that I am swimming against the tide here but I don't care. Anyone who has ever bought from me knows that I am a blessing to commerce and to humanity in general.
It's true that there are very few (if any) infallible guarantees in life. But I think I'll always prefer a bit of warm, old-fashioned slop to the ongoing procreation of coldness and mistrust.
Die, yuppie scum! (Maybe not you personally, but I think you get the idea.)
I love it.
As a buyer, I can't wait for the day you have a 120v speed regulator I can use with my MMF-5. My money order will be in an envelope with a stamp faster than you can say "Lobster Thermidor aux crevettes with a Mornay sauce, garnished with truffle pâté, brandy and a fried egg on top, and Spam." :)
