They sent a message saying it was for their son, blah blah, could I send then they pay, I said no and they haven't paid. They havent responded to my messages but are they liable to pay ?

They are supposed to pay, but they could just not pay and end up with a no payment against their account, which results in you getting no money but your fees refunded.

yes, but they are allowed 10 days, then you can deal with ebay
you can request buyer details, so you can try various ways to contact them
all they can really do then is put an unpaid strike against them, and refund your fees

then you have to start over

Thanks for the info. Either would be fine, so i'll see how it pans out. Both repped ;-)

A NPB is nothing for a buyer, it wont bother them.

They've only got 14 feedback, think they were looking for a quick scam. It's an xbox live code, so it can't be returned if they aren't genuine

Were you going to email the buyer the code once they paid?

They were probably hoping you'd send it, then they'd claim that it didn't work or something. If they claimed such a thing, you wouldn't be able to verify their claims without inputting the code (and therefore using it!!) yourself..

It's clear they were trying to pull a fast one, I wouldn't bother waiting for them personally and just report them straight away - if it's possible so soon.

excatly why I refused, a poor attempt at trying to get xbox live for free. I'll leave it for a day or two and see what happens, and then end up reporting him i'm sure

You can't report them for non payment yet,you can only do a mutual withdrawal straight away which if they didn't agree to you would lose your fees,

They could claim it didn't work anyhow even if they paid as they'd get a refund from paypal

Don't do it,you'd have no proof of delivery or a tracking number for paypal,your leaving yourself wide open to be scammed

email proof ? or if I sent it through ebay, private mail as proof ?

Nope,paypal wouldn't take that as proof of delivery,plus seller protection doesn't cover digital delivery,you aren't allowed to offer it on ebay anymore,

Items delivered by email are a scammers delight,I know cos I used to sell top up vouchers

You need to post it with tracking and even then they could say it didn't work and you'd be forced to refund by paypal

With your buyer I'd be hoping they didn't pay,have a look at what other items they have bought recently,probably a lot of items to be delivered by email

Just let it go then (not the code, the fact they havent paid, then whack in a NPB claim at last minute) if they was out to scam ome way they will find another way, ie claim non-receipt or SNAD claiming the envelope you sent it in contained something else.

If you only use an account to buy then starting from scratch is nothing. To prove a point to someone I set up a new eBay and paypal account and had it upto 300 and something feedback on the sameday spending under a fiver in total, if you then set feedback to private and say list raunchy undies you could then step up to scamming as private feedback looks like you are doing it for customers modesty.

what 300 items did you buy for 2p each ?

You can open a npb dispute after 4 days, these do work as 3 and your banned and 2 other sellers can block thm from bidding and prevent them from buting.

However selling xbox live codes on ebay is a daft thing to do anyway, as it's not allowed, ebay won't pull the listing unless reported tho, and you have no seller protection whatsoever.

If you were selling a card and posted it then yes you would, not if it was delivered via email though like you were going to do.

Even so, it's a minefield as it's very easy for a buyer to win a SNAD on a game card saying it dosen't work when they have already used it, difficult for you to prove otherwise.

I wouldn't sell game codes on eBay for the above reasons, why do you think Jasper1675 pulled out?

Paypal needs a proof of delivery, so no email deliery accepted
The buyer can say code didn't work and get money back

You then lose your cash and the code, is this just one code or are you trying to sell them as a business?

Lots of ebooks, wallpapers etc available for 1p, other things like NDS stylus, screen protectors for phones, psp's, DS etc from China can be had for pennies too, they leave feedback automatically when you leave your positive for them. You can also sell wallpapers ebooks etc to quickly get feedback as a seller and get your ten DSR ratings that are needed so paypal dont hold on to your funds when selling phones, consoles etc

Feedback is too easy to manipulate for scammers.
