I know this sounds like crazy but in my market that could make a real difference.
I have an online store for people around the world to buy stuff for their relatives/friends in my country of origin. They buy it, I ship it.
There are so many scams and issues around this type of business that people will definitely run after the first company that offers to charge them after the order gets to its destination.
I was researching about authorizing the transaction and then process it after the order is received but this process takes too long and Paypal(which I'm using to process my CC transactions) wont hold it for so long.
I was also thinking in getting some sort of insurance against this kind of "fraud" or "MF" who decide not to pay after the order is shipped and received.
So...I have to questions here:
1- Is there a way of blocking or authorizing the amount of the order for the time it takes to be delivered?..this could take up to 20 days in some cases.
2- Is there any kind of insurance I can get to protect myself in case of chargebacks and people I cant collect payment from?
If any of you have any tips I can use to implement this or something similar I will really appreciate it.
Thanks a Lot
Re: Charging after the customer receives the item
I'm sorry I can't offer any tips, only say I would never do that.
