Outside Ebay Sales
« on: May 23, 2007, 01:40:27 PM »
So this dude is straight HOUNDING me to buy my springs. He emailed me a day after my Ebay auction ended and will pay through Paypal. Yes? no? I'm wary, but not sure how I could get screwed out of the deal since it's Paypal and yes, I'd get all his contact info first.

I would only do it if you feel comfortable with it. Why didn't he bid?

I don't know. He's willing to pay more than what the auction ended at. Like I said, it was like a day later so maybe he missed it?

does he have an ebay rating?  look up his profile and see how he stands, and what feedback he has.

maybe he is not a purchasing member of ebay, just signed up and tries to buy outside of auctions.

I'd go with OK as long as you get the cash (not just the paypal deposit, but withdraw it from PP - that or insist on a check and wait for it to clear) before you ship.

If he doesn't have an Ebay account, it could be because he has used stolen credit cards in the past.

If he pays you paypal, and you ship the springs to the address the credit card is registered to, then you are "protected".
