Hello Mates, I want to sell my laptop through ebay. When I listed the item last week someone from Africa bought it and asking me to send the laptop to Nigeria! although I mentioned in the listing that I will ship to UK only . Later I received a dodgy email saying paypal has received my money and they will credit my account once I email them my shipping tracking number! Then When I tried to email the buyer through ebay he was blocked by ebay! Now they took my listing fee and I can relist freely.

I couldnt find how to set restrictions for buyers like " 2 postive feedback" , "paypal verified account" etc...

How can I set the restrictions on buyers? Please help me

Thanks in advance

Ignore nigeria scams.

In fact i always if buying something of value leave it a couple of days before paying. been stung by ebay and paypal paying instantly before.

For restricting buyers. usually people add to description buyer with less than 5 feedback contact direct before bidding or you will be canceled.

To set restrictions on buyers do the following:

Goto My Ebay;
In the left-hand column, click 'Site Preferences', under the My Account Section;
Click 'Show' on the Buyer Requirements section;
Then click 'Edit' to amend

That should do it

I think you got lucky :thumbsup:, always be cautious or refuse to sell to those outside the shipping area you specified. Good luck next time

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="3"][COLOR="DarkOrchid"]I do as Hodsey suggests and limit sales to Europe, America, Asia and Australia, I also include a bit in the description about only selling to overseas sellers who email me before bidding for postage costs. If they don't I cancel their bid. I've successfully sold to people in all these places and I'm not a business seller, just sold a few of my spare things. Sometimes it is easy to forget that there are honest buyers out there![/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

I agree, Ive sold and shipped to australia, norway and america with no problems, and made good money too. Be aware of the risks but dont think they are all the same
