Need some help on a ebay transaction.
I have sold a game on ebay but the buyer wants it to be sent at a different address than the one on his paypal account.Says its his nephews birthday and not to include any sort of paperwork.
I have heard that this could be a scam but what does members here think?
I have had payment from paypal and its logged as paid so abit worried as what to do.

Quite an obvious one, but whats their feedback like?

If your buyers feedback and 'standing' looks OK I'd tell him to add the address to his Paypal account.
Log into Paypal, click 'Profile', then click on 'add address', then add the address and click on 'Gift Address'. (I'll try and find a direct link)
That should be OK for you. I'm guessing this is not an expensive game?


Edit,
I'll find another direct way.

Paypal

https://www.paypal.com/HELPSCR-475-20070719-1/en_US/i/help/help_q.gif My buyer provided a Gift Address with his payment. If I deliver to the Gift Address, will I still be covered under the Seller Protection Policy (SPP)?


https://www.paypal.com/HELPSCR-475-20070719-1/en_US/i/help/help_a.gif As long as the address is confirmed, the payment is marked as SPP eligible and you meet the requirements of SPP then the payment will be covered under SPP.

Should be fine if the buyer has paid for it. All you need to do is 2 things:

1. Retain and back-up the email(s) which evidently confirms that your buyer has requested their item to be sent to a different address.

2. Make sure you use an appropriate signed for postal service as this will prove that the item has been received at the provided address.

You can't be scammed if it's been paid for. However, some dishonest buyers can claim they haven't received the item when they have. They are very limited to the amount of times they can do this unless they have multiple identities and addresses but you will be covered against this if you follow the 2 actions I've suggested.

PMSL @ your buyer :giggle: :giggle: :giggle:
He's a seller and looking at his selling history I think he sold more of the games than he had and needs yours to fulfill an order. Hehehehe
If you email me I'll send you the links:-

You have highlighted in bold a statement out of context. I did use the word 'evidently' in my post which in context means the seller is certain of the authenticity of the buyer's request.

Therefore, tell me how a seller can be scammed if the item has been paid for and the seller takes the precautions such as using an appropriate signed for delivery service and retains the email requesting a different address?

I do not understand your use of a whistling smiley. I am not an arrogant person and I look forward to learning something from you.

edited spelling!

Emails can be falsified and Paypal will not accept it if a claim for non delivery was/is filed. The buyer should add the address, as I mentioned above for the seller to qualify for Seller Protection.

Without Seller protection, the Buyer can initiate a Chargeback through his Credit Card or Paypal. Just because the Seller has been paid it does not mean it cannot be taken back or their account put in arrears. Also, the same applies if the Seller moved the money into their Bank Account.

Paypals U/A is a very complicated, but if you follow it you should not go far wrong, in my opinion. This case in particular is typical of how you can still have SP just by following the U/A.

It was not my intention to make you out to be arrogant (Soz) and the Smilie was because if he had followed your advice he would not have had seller protection.

I would simply just send it to the address he wants. if he has 250+ feedback, he's not going to be up to a scam.

Cheers for the reply! I can now see that it's better to add the address with paypal. Thanks for the info.
