Online plant sellers

Hello, does anyone know of any online stores that sell plants that they can recommend?

Like the store has fast shipping, cheap, good quality etc.
I am looking mostly for plants to go on the foreground (micro sword) if that helps.

Also, I am looking for stores that has paypal as a way of payment because my dad doesnt like giving out his credit card number.

thankyou ^^

I have had luck with Lowcoaster on Aquabid. The Swap Shop here at PT.net has given me the best results though.

If possible I would try and stick to other members here since the quantity and quality of what you get will likely be higher.

I've also had really good luck with aquariumplants.com but, I agree, getting plants from other members have been some of my best plant buying experiences.

sorry for my late reply xP

It seems that ill probably be being stuff from members on here

Im just looking for smallish rocks, java moss/riccia right now. I dont know how most people on here likes to get paid though. I probably will be able to just send money in an envelope and trust people on here since it is a pretty close-knit community ^^

most people here prefer non-cc funded paypal. A good number of them will only take that since they don't want to deal with cash and its easy to print out a shipping label and such using paypal

non-credit-card... payment deducted from your checking account directly.

Ive had much better luck with aquariumplants.net.

wait, so im confused. So people dont like to use paypal where money is deducted by creditcards? o.o

ill give that site a check fishman

also, i found a site that sells java moss that to me, seems very fair. Two generous handfuls of java moss is 5 dollars ( one handful being 3) and shipping is only 5 dollars. Heres a link:http://www.tinytanks.net/stockshop/

There is a fee for the seller associated with payments made by credit cards so, most people prefer to non-credit card paypal to avoid paying a fee on each transaction.

ohh, i see. I do remember reading somewhere on there that the buyer doesnt have to pay to give money but the receiver does. How much is it usually? Like if it isnt that expensive, i would just pay for it too.

ugh, this is so stupid ><

my dad and i did the whole paypal thing up to the part where we had to call them (credit card way not bank account) the person would not let us finish because we did not have a home telephone number. My family only has cellphones that was use as a hometelephone. The person said that the only other way was to use paypal with a bank account which my dad did not want to do...

now i have no way to get javamoss, rocks, or wood D:
