Bump: I get the majority of my plants off here. If I don't collect them myself or, impulse buy at the LFS it's off the RAOK/For Sale or word of mouth off here.

Stock lightly and carry a big filter. - I don't have aquariums. I have ecosystems in a glass box. - Hygrophilaholic and hoarder of Anubias.

Nothing wrong with paypal. Plus you will get better plants for less money here.Ive bought from several people here and have gotten the healthiest plants ever.

You could probably use cashier's checks or money orders if you really wanted to.

His site is pretty new, but many of us have ordered from Han on this forum before he created his own business.
I'm not 100% sure if you can use CC instead of PP at checkout.

That's not true at all. I have had plenty of people on here accept cash, checks, money orders, etc. I have even had people send the plants at the same time I've sent money in the mail. There are people on here who do not use Paypal at all either.

Many online sites use Paypal as the primary means of payment because it is the most trusted payment option available. Far more secure than typing in your credit card information online. I don't know of any online sites that allow you to pay with a money order or check.

The sites mentioned before all seem alright, but the shipping kills it for me. I bought enough plants to plant my 75g on here and the shipping was $14. Ordering them from most sites would be $40+ for overnight shipping which most sites make you use.

There's a website called JacobsAquarium.com that seems to be pretty cheap on shipping. Shipping to my zip code is only 7 dollars.
