Escrow payments are extremely safe for both buyers and sellers. However, escrow tends to be slower than payment processing, because the seller must wait to receive the funds.
Cryptocurrency payments are usually non-reversible. That means these payments are safe for sellers but dangerous for buyers. However, some cryptocurrency platforms allow payments to be reversed, making them more dangerous for sellers without making them completely safe for buyers.
Pay by mail options
Before payment platforms existed, people mailed money orders and personal checks. Some people still do, although that is extremely dangerous for buyers.
Other protection options
If your payment option doesn't protect you, you might hope to add an additional layer of protection on top. You might be disappointed.
