I want to work with A1A Gifts online
I asked them a bout paying for item, because I wanted to pay with paypal
They answer me this

'Thank you for your email.
We do accept Paypal orders for orders up to $50.
Orders over $50 will have to be either Bank Transfers or Money Orders.'

What is Money Order that they mentioned isn't it
Credits Card?
I appreciate your help!!

Not sure about the states, but I assume it's the same as Aust. A money order can be bought here from the post office, you give them the money, and a small fee for the admin, and they give you a money order that the business can then redeem for the cash amount it is made out for.

Hope that was some help : )

You can get money orders everywhere but the most common place is your US post office as they are the most reliable and fraud free. Just remember that USPS does not accept credit cards for money order purchases. So make sure to have cash when you get them.

They are asking you for money orders because paypal fees tend to cost too much with large purchases.

This company has gone out of business. Thank God I never placed an order with them. I went to look online today to see if they had an item
someone was requesting and the website was
nowhere to be found. I found several complaints about them recent ones at that indicating that they took money for goods & they never delivered. People noted disputes with Paypal were filed therefore that was a great indicator as
to why they were asking for a money order so that Paypal would not be involved. I do not conduct business with vendors without
PayPal since, I know Paypal will protect my investment. I had my share of situations with vendors & Paypal has always helped me rectify the problem or they have provided a refund.

Hi TheBudgetFind,

This is regarding your request that I reply to your forum post here. I have checked the directory and confirmed that A1A Gifts Online is no longer listed. Although I cannot trace what complaints were raised that made our team unapprove their listing, it must be that the site itself no longer exists that they had to be removed. We also appreciate your feedback.

If you need help in searching for suitable suppliers, let us know and we will do our best to assist you.

Hi Irene! I found several complaints when, I googled them because, I was wondering what happened. Below are a few of the complaints that were posted about them. They were in business for about 12 years odd they suddenly disappeared off the face of the earth. I just thought everyone should be cautious when a company does not want to pay via a secure method. Thanks for your very prompt reply & I would love it if you could direct me to suitable suppliers that offer drop shipping. Sadly, I have not had much success.
