I saw a game on Ebay and I wanted to buy it so I put a offer on it but someone else bought it! Anyway the seller then messaged me saying that he has another copy and he would sell it to me for £19 delivered!

He told me to send him a direct payment of £19 to his paypal account and then he will send the game to me.

He has 100% - 200 feedbacks on Ebay

Should I send him the money direct or ask him to send me a payment request from his paypal first? Or does it not make a difference??

Thanks

I don't think he will do a discount on the price if he listed it as ''buy now'' because he mentioned ebay fee's etc... Aint I covered then if I pay £19 as ''goods'' to his paypal account.

Depends if you want to give him £19 to buy some Xmas beers out of the goodness of your heart?

No. That's a myth........if he withdraws or moves the money then you will get nothing.Only eBay protects you with Paypal

And then they are still not covered.

Ask him to relist it at that price, then no worries about the safety of your money and what heppens if the game is lost in the post/faulty etc.
#9
ONLY do it via ebay.
#10
He should be able to send you a second chance offer! This means the next highest bidders can be sent the offer and it's all ebay legit!
#11
If the item should not arrive you could not start an Ebay claim as Ebay would have no record of the sale. You could not start a Paypal claim because Paypal would say the payment was just sent as a gift.

dont do it!

Thanks you lot for your response to my question.
I just told him to make me a second offer on Ebay and he replyed saying this:

Hey mate if I do it though ebay ill have to pay ebay fees aswell just pay though paypal and it will be sent recorded using RM and ill giv you a tracking number so both of us are covered.

So I replyed saying this:

Mate sounds good but I won't be covered. Only the poster will be covered. You put it for £19.95 anyway with make me a offer so it will be the same payment amount you asked for :DI

If thats the case then why is this site always telling buyers to use paypal and pay the fees if it offers no protection?

I read somewhere that If the seller will amend the paypal invoice to show goods then you have full paypal coverage. But If it stays as services then you do not have protection!

Or you if you do a CC charge back then you are also covered!!

Can someone verify that.

I think Paypal extended their buyer protection policy to cover online retailers as well as ebay, but as other poster said only deals through Ebay protect you when dealing with private punters/sellers

ONLY fully protected through eBay and most CC won't allow you to chargeback for paypal anymore, especially under £100

I just rang up Paypal and they confirmed that I will be fully protected as long as the seller's invoice is stated ''Goods'' and not ''Services'' ;)

Thanks for all your advice

Go for it............and if he moves the money then Paypal will also tell you they can't recover the funds.

Paypal me some money under goods and try and claim it back 2 mins later and i'll show you how easy it's done X)
