When i sell off of craigslist i make sure to let people know i have this option as someone might not have $400 cash but they can for sure put that on their credit card. Or they can split it half cash half card etc.
So my advice for the future. get yourself one of these. you can open up your buyers percentage by plenty.
You can do it on Paypal now as well, the rate is 2.7%.
