Demaestro: I think requiring customers to send money orders would be ridiculous in regards to the damage it would do to the order rate unless you have a serious competitive advantage.
But you are incorrect - you ARE protected by both Google and PayPal from ALL chargebacks if you deliver tangible goods according to their requirements and the orders you deliver to are payment guaranteed.
That's what I am looking for in this thread - not necessarily sophisticated fraud prevention (although if that's the best we can do, so be it) but rather a company that will take the liability.
Both PayPal and Google Checkout provide this. Any others would be super!
