I have some things for sale on Facebook. I told the buyer to use Paypal and gave them my address. Instead they sent the money through the Facebook Messenger Pay option. I've never used it and don't know anything about it. From Google I learned that if I don't accept it, it will be refunded in 7 days. How does it work? What happens if I accept the payment?

Where Black is the color, where None is the number
I barely trust Mark Zuckerberg to go to the bathroom by himself. Anything FB-designed is security Swiss-cheese built to extract maximum personal data, and if and when it’s compromised, a freshly-hatched Zuck clone just blinks in the harsh light and repeats the sacred mantra: “There is no way this could be foreseen. Steps are being taken.” until us surface-dwellers leave him alone.

In short, I’d avoid it if possible. Buyers who struggle with simple requests like this rarely become less difficult as things go on anyway.
