    i only give it to the customers that want to pay this way.
    it should be safe, but you never know.

    I do it with existing customers, wouldnt put it on flyers etc.

    To my knowledge, no one can do anything dodgy with just your account number & sort code. I might be wrong.

    Hell no. There isn't a great deal of fraud that people could pull off with JUST these details but by giving them out to everyone, you'll be one step closer to being robbed. Give them out to customers that ask for them but don't give them out by default.

    It may be an idea to put on the cards that you can accept payments via BACS and PayPal. You can actually use PayPal's logo too

    People cant do nothing with your s/c and a/c but they can if they have other details such as your name & address...

    Double negative H...tut.

    What I'm saying is that if someone had your sort code and account number, they're one step closer to ripping you off. I'm probably a bit paranoid but it's better safe than sorry when it comes to money

    Suppose it's one of those things that's ultimately down to you.

    Personally I'll probably leave it on my invoices that I leave with customers who I miss, but as Iain said I'd never give it out as default such as put it on a website or a blanket flyer.
