I am new to using the FS/FT forum, and am having no luck selling my bits. I have an issue though, having recently offered to buy something paying by Bank Transfer, only to be told the sum offered wouldn't leave much left over after postage, and the seller only deals with paypal. Today I saw the item was sold for the same amount I offered, but by paypal. I realise it's entirely up to the seller who they wish to sell to and all that, but I'm a bit miffed to be honest. What's up with taking my money by bank transfer? It's just as (un)safe as PPG or am I failing to sell my stuff because I've asked for Bank Transfer as method of payment. Any advice appreciated... or I'll be freezing my bits off at a car boot sometime soon.
