Ebay selling question.

I'm selling some items on eBay. I said that I would accept payment by paypal and deliver using frst class.

Someone's just won my item and said over the phone they want to come collect it. I said pay me by Paypal and then you can and they have done that. Is it safe for me now to give them the item? I noticed that I don't have access to the money sent to me via paypal for 21 days.

not a good idea to use paypal when collecting as you have no prrof of delivery, they can just say that they didnt receive it! to risky

Oh right! Thats good to know. So how do I inform ebay/paypal that I've delivered it?
#6
I have recorded the call, I have also sent them a message through eBay saying we agreed that they pay and collect.
#7
did they know you were recording? you can't just phone conversations, thats illegal
#8
plus you will not have to pay paypal fees
#9
I can't understand why you didn't just let them come to collect it in the first place and pay when they came :?

And it doesn't matter what you have told paypal you have agreed to,if they claim non receipt you don't have a tracking number so paypal would refund

He's coming to collect it so don't worry. I have the call recorded, messages saved in ebay messages.

set up for a chargeback then.... refund the payment and say cash on collection.
#13
paypal only care that you can prove delivery by tracked means (eg recorded delivery) If its a high value item don't give it out - ask for cash, otherwise you will lose every time in a paypal dispute.
Paypal is only safe for buyers and a pain for sellers in my opinion. Ask for cash and avoid pp fees too.

How much is the item worth ?
