go round to their house and demand the money and the cost it took you to get there

The mods tell them off and we have a big debate about it

Yes, it's normal practice to send items to members with good feedback, but don't feel pressured into doing it with members who don't have a great deal of feedback themselves.
Also, make sure you get the name, address and landline number of the person you are sending the items to so you as it gives you some security if any issues arise. Don't forget to make a call to the landline to make sure it is their number as well, especially with high value items.

No it is not normal, some like to do it, but it is a risk you take, do not feel pressured into doing it.

u dont have to, but u may find members with high feedback will not purchase if u wont, as sickly said if u follow rules u will be fine, most of us have had to post first to build up feedback
#11
The thing is i have always sold on ebay and have a fantastic rating on there, and have never had to do it before, oh well im not happy to do it, as i know its not a lot of money but would worry that they dont pay for it, thanks for all your help folks maybe i wont sell on here i will go back to ebay
#12
You can always agree with the buyer to pay half upfront and half upon arrival of the item. And if it's only an inexpensive item, the buyer might not ask for you to post first anyway.

It looks suspicious if a new member arrives with no feedback and tries to sell something expensive (maybe they're a scammer trying to make a quick buck?) so just sell small cheap things first to build up your feedback.

I wouldn't let it put you off, it's a great place to sell things on here and the added bonus of no fees.
I see you are selling children's items, they sell really well on here.
Maybe build up your feedback with a few sales to members with high feedbacks or offer local collection. Also sometimes you get other new buyers who will be happy to pay first.
Put your ebay name in the listing and that will probably help you as well.
No harm in trying.

No-one has asked you to send first on your threads or where you have offered stuff. The buyer should be asking within the thread to keep it all transparent.

Also if it's the person with only 3 feedback that's asked you via PM then i wouldn't consider that enough feedback to be posting first as they are new as well.

You should not be dealing by PM. Everything has to be agreed first within the thread else you'll end up suspended and could end up with a full trading ban.

They're probably trying to stitch you up.

the person who asked has feedback of 49 via private message

Report them. They know they are breaking the rules as they have enough feedback to know better..........probably lining you up for a scam.
suspended#22
the person needs to confirm to buy in ur thread first before they should contact u by pm, a pm is for passing on personal details only
#23
Despite what people may say, you don't have to. I never did, and it's never caused any problems.

name and shame, someone with 49 feedback shouldnt be doing that and they should know that.

Totally agree and in this instance fully deserving of being named...
#26
as every one else has said you dont have to send first, for low feedback users i ask if they have feedback elsewhere (Ebay AV forums etc) then confirm on the website where they have feedback that it is them and then i go ahead from there. not everyone will accept feedback from a different website though which is understandable.
only go ahead with a deal if you are 100% happy about it, if it means it to start off with just offer your items as collection only to build up your feedback.

oh dear, another one to add to 'the list' ;)

sweepette, if you are offering items to a member who has listed a wanted thread for example, then you can only agree a deal with that member in their thread. Agreeing a deal with another member is called ' thread hijacking ' and you won't be able to leave trade feedback for each other.

If the member listing the thread doesn't want some items you've offered to them, you can start your own sales thread and ensure it complies fully with forum rules. Or another prospective buyer can start their own wanted thread. Established members should be aware of the strict rules on thread hijacking. And they should never PM a member until a deal is agreed in thread (and never in someone else's thread)

No Thread Jacking.
Taking over someone else’s thread and using it for your own means.


Please ensure that you fully review the trade forum rules before any further trading.
