Ebay advice please: should I list my car?

Having just read another thread relating to a full refund through ebay even though cash was paid, where would I stand if I listed my car, buyer bought and paid cash, then 'changed his mind' at a slightly later date?

Any and all advice gratefully received, as it was definitely my plan to list it this weekend!

With the way buyer protection is set up then i'd say no. Now they'll refund and take the money off you regardless how the buyer paid you are screwed and it's going to be abused a lot.

I doubt the seller on the other thread would be out of pocket,my understanding is that Ebay themselves have refunded,nothing to do with the seller,hence the reason the buyer does not have to return the item.

No..........with the scheme how it is now then eBay go after the seller for the money. If they can't get it from their paypal then it's passed onto debt collectors/bailiffs etc.

Yes, but it all seems rather dodgy to me. Someone somewhere will have to pay... I was all up for listing it, until I read that.

It's on the eBay message boards and also tucked away in the small print of the Buyer Protection policy. :)

Sell the car on auto trader...buyers are much more realistic and you'll get a better price.

we sold our mini on ebay , the ******** went buy it now at the asking price then pulled out days later , no comeback no nothing. At your own risk. Im sure not all have had a bad exp with it but i would rather sell it on autotrader

How can Ebay get away with expecting a seller to refund AND not getting the item back,surely that's theft:?

Nope I have been looking into it ASAP as I do all the admin for my friend, she can't afford that kind of loss, she is disabled it keeps her occupied, so i deal with all the "heavy" stuff.

It now looks like ebay wiil refund even if you can't prove you have paid ie cash, which is news to me, it does not say anywhere, but they are obviously doing it.

This new no fault thing, although they pocket it, ebay that is, they *can* try and take it back :w00t: Small claims are gonna be ££££££££££££££££ in.

Op cars are slightly different, but would I sell one there? Hell no to many timewasters/scammers and ebay changing their rules at the drop of a hat:w00t:
