PayPal or Check are the preferred methods of payment. There will be a $3 service fee applied to each payment processed.
Money credited to Your Account does not accrue interest. In the event of a VOID by a Merchant, WSE may recover from You the corresponding Commission previously credited to Your Account. The VOID Commission will be immediately deducted from Your Account balance.
