This is the heart of our technology. A buyer's payment never goes directly to the seller; Payment is released only after a transaction is marked complete by both the buyer and seller.
Payments are processed by PayPod; this means buyers and sellers don't have to exchange any personal or banking information with each other. We are your personal firewall.
No cash needed. With PayPod users get multiple options to pay(and get paid) for their purchases using VISA, Mastercard, ACH, Interac(Canada Only), Paypal and more.
PayPod protects buyers and sellers equally; our goal is always to ensure there is zero fraud, and to act on what is fair based on the evidence provided by the engaging parties.
From downloading the app to creating your first payment "Pod" for your product, it takes less than 3 minutes. PayPod is built to power and grow the circular economy.
Support that is truly available. At PayPod our mission is to make marketplace payments safe, efficient and reliable; we can't achieve this without solving your problems.
Download the PayPod app from the app store for your phone and sign-up using your name, email address and phone number. Remember, none of this information is shared with any other user on PayPod. Only your unique username is used for transactions.
For Sellers: Enter price of your item and description to create your pod. Share this link on your listing to get paid.
For Buyers: Click on the Pod link provided by the seller and pay using your preferred option.
Once the handover of goods, or the requested service is complete, the seller requests the release of funds. Once the buyer approves the request, funds are credited to the seller instantly. Note: No reponse from the buyer for 24 hours = automatic release of funds.
