---------------------

THE PS2 HAS NOW BEEN SOLD

---------------------


Decided to sell my PS2 since it just doesn't get used anymore (hasn't been touched for the past 2-3 months).
Here's what's for sale :

--------------
Old-style PS2 (ie. not the slim-line one) in good condition and perfect working order. All leads included.

Maxtor 160GB hard-drive fitted inside the PS2.

The drive contains 76 games (seventy-six games, in case you think I might have made a typo).
Some of the more notable titles include Toca Race Driver 3, Black, Tomb Raider Legend, Rez, Ico, Tekken 5, Outrun 2006 - Coast To Coast, Burnout Revenge, Hitman Contracts, Resident Evil 4, Driver - Parallel Lines, Devil May Cry 3, Micro Machines V4, The Warriors, GTA San Andreas etc.

Original HD Advance software cd with instruction booklet.

Two official Sony controllers (one is brand new & still sealed in it's box), plus 1 unofficial controller.

Network Adaptor (fitted inside the PS2)

2 Official Sony memory cards, plus a PS1 memory card.

Official Sony dvd remote control.

Various demo dvds, PS2 magazines etc. , plus a couple of older boxed games.
-------------

At this point I'm looking for £150 and AM NOT OPEN TO OFFERS (sorry).

Postage will be an additional £10 for standard parcels insured service, and about £20 (at a guess) for Special Delivery.
Anyone living near Chester is wecome to collect the system in person (providing cash is paid) and I can happily provide a full demonstration if required.

Any interest, let me know, cheers.

If anyone wants to check my 'credentials', pm me for my ebay user name. You can then ask me a question through the ebay system to confirm the account is mine.
I could even sell the PS2 as a pre-arranged 'Buy-It-Now' on Ebay if required.

"I hope you don't use Standard Parcels on ebay."


I've sent quite a lot of stuff using standard parcels over the past few years and never had a single problem . Also, on expensive items like this, I always pay for extra insurance (if I send the PS2 via this method it will be insured for £200).

"Anyway,
Good luck with the sale"

Cheers !

What is wrong with "Standard Parcels", dinosteveus

Is it cos paypal dont cover them or something?
#4
Standard Parcels is not trackable. For the same price you can use a courier and have it fully tracked.
If somebody bought something from you on ebay and they paid with Paypal you could not provide Paypal with a tracking number, so if the buyer files a INR dispute you would lose the dispute and Paypal would refund the buyer.
In Paypals U/A it states you must use a trackable service.

[SIZE=2]dinosteveus, I don't accept paypal or have a paypal account, since I don't think thier terms & conditions for sellers are very fair (seems to me that everything is balanced in favour of the buyer and it's way too easy for fraudulent buyers to rip sellers off).[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Because of this, I don't think the fact that standard parcels is non-trackable makes any difference to my PS2 sale.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]The important thing is that the PS2 will be fully insured, so in the highly unlikely event the parcel gets lost on route, the buyer will receive an instant full refund.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Having said that, if a buyer would prefer to use a courier instead, I'll happily oblige (at cost of course - I've never used one before and have no idea how much they charge).[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]P.S. Just to confirm my accepted payment methods : Cheque, postal order, bank transfer, or cash (either sent by insured delivery, or paid in person if the buyer wants to come to my house and collect)[/SIZE]

So what protection does the buyer get that you will send the item after they have paid you by Cheque, Postal Order, BACS or Cash?

Well I guess they don't have any protection in that respect, but I've offered to let people contact me via Ebay to check out out my ebay account. I run a selling business there and have over 3,000 positive feedback.
I've also offered to set up a 'Buy-It-Now' option on Ebay if required.

(By the way, I should point out to the mods that this is my personal PS2 I'm selling).

Also, if there was anything dodgy about this sale, would I give people the option of coming to my house for a full demonstration before they hand over the cash ?

I'm not a fan of paypal, and if you read the Ebay messages boards on a regular basis, or have a look at sites such as www.paypalsucks.com, I think you'll understand why plenty of people (including myself) aren't in a hurry to sign up with them.

Anyway, it would be nice if the next comment was from someone who was interested in buying the PS2 :)

Cash and Postal orders are NOT covered by ebays Standard Purchase Protection Programme, are they?:-
http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/buy/payment.html

I've heard about Paypalsucks.com.

I know about ebays community boards. I post on the P&P board regularly and have done for over 4 years.

Setting up a BIN on ebay would help in what way? The protection limit is £120 minus a £15.00 admin fee.

I'm not having a go at you and it is up to you whether you accept Paypal or not, that has nothing to do with me.

Don't take my posts the wrong way, I'm not saying you are dishonest in any way, I just don't want anybody else losing money on HUKD.
I would say exactly the same thing along with most of the regs if you posted on the P&P board.:-
http://forums.ebay.co.uk/forum.jspa?forumID=14

Just out of curiosity, what is your ebay ID?

"Setting up a BIN on ebay would help in what way?"

It would help in the trust department since people would be able read through my feedback and see the comments from over 3,000 happy customers (none of whom have paid by paypal and none of whom have been ripped off).

I understand you're not having a go and are just looking out for peoples best interests. Guess it's a just a bit depressing when you see new comments have been left on your thread, assume they are from potential buyers, then read them and find out they're not.
Anyway, no problems there and I understand why you've said what you've said.

My ebay username is "martin-909" (same as my name on here, just with a dash/minus sign in the middle, instead of an underscore).

Sorry it's me again.:)
You cannot solicit buyers to mail cash, on ebay.:-
http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/policies/accepted-payments-policy.html

I'll not post again :)
#11
Blimey, I wasn't aware of that ! I've been offering cash (sent via registered post) as one of my payment options for over 4 years, as do a huge amount of other sellers. The fact it's not allowed has never been brought to my attention before.
No problem in removing it from future auctions though, especially as it's very rarely taken up anyway.

I'm quite surprised that's what you decided to post about though, I assumed you wanted my Ebay id so you could check my feedback.

Anyway, in case anyone's forgotten, I've got a PS2 for sale :)
Let me know if interested, thanks. Off out now but I'll check back this evening.

Sorry, I didn't ask for your ebay ID so I can pick faults with it.
You have excellent feedback. I don't say this often, but I would be quite happy to pay you by BACS or Cheque etc.


Good Luck with the sale and sorry for all the questions.

No problem, I understand why you needed to ask those questions.

Cheers for the vote of confidence :)

Now sold to a member of this forum.

I have to agree with you (and good to know there are people that don't like Paypal heha), i'm not a fan of Paypal at all.. it might be very handy for buying, but there is no protection for sellers at all.

Also, nothing wrong with standard parcels, infact for just an extra Ј1 on top of the standard parcel weight price you get insurance for up to Ј250 so it works out an affordable way to post. I normally use Special delivery for expensive items, recorded delivery for standard value, and standard parcel for very large items when it works out better value than special delivery :)

yeah. paypals rubbish... for buyers as well, we had a problem and it passed the 45day mark, and they werent intersted anymore.

So we pulled the debit card payment, then paypal decided to help... and resolve the matter.

Funny that...

I use to sell a lot of GSM stuff and cars on the bay, paypal always looks like a secure option until you get into a dispute that is and thats when reality comes crashing down on you !

I only ever got stung once in all my years on the bay and that was with a memory card from a hijacked account 3000+ positives B&&&*%^% paypal took such a huge chunk in admin fees etc all I got back was literally a few quid !

Must give credit to [COLOR="Red"]dinosteveus [/COLOR] for asking a few questions , obviously no dis-respect to this seller who seems very trustworthy but you all know what its like...Glad you sold it buddy !

Yep, that basically seems to be the case to me. I think sellers DO have some protection (could be wrong, can't remember off-hand), but I know the overall balance is very much in the buyer's favour.
There are plenty of other reasons relating to the way they operate that put me off too.

"I use to sell a lot of GSM stuff and cars on the bay, paypal always looks like a secure option until you get into a dispute that is and thats when reality comes crashing down on you !"

Yeah, I believe that's often the case. Most people who use paypal think it's fine UNTIL they get involved in some sort of dispute. That's when it can become a nightmare apparently.
Obviously it's quite possible you can use paypal regularly for years without ever running into a dispute/problem, I'd just prefer not to take the risk.

I'm not talking from personal experience of course (since I've never used paypal), just going by what I've heard and read over the years.

"Glad you sold it buddy !"

Cheers :)
