    afraid not as you might nab it:whistling:

    Is it an Ebay shop ?

    Never heard of payment only by phone as sellers must offer Paypal.

    How long have they been registered for,is there any new feedback ?

    Fair enough haha..

    urm well i don;t know what payment by phone is? check out their negative feedback?

    If anything goes wrong you wont be covered. Its also against ebays T&Cs so if your feeling evil report it.

    You have NO comeback with a chq!

    Without more info it sounds dodgy to me,on Ebay they must offer Paypal:roll:

    A cheque still doesn't give you any protection.

    Why do people ask questions and then ignore advice grrrr

    The auctions do take paypal, its in the payment options.

    looks fine to me, if you look they have over 100 items listed. Also look through their feedback for completed listings, they all say the same thing, ring blah blah to pay, and they have positives.

    Just had a look and he seems genuine enough

    I personally would still pay via paypal, if they refused to take it I would report them.

    They can offer to take phone payments as well as Paypal, but not instead of.

    they probably pay over he phone and they key it into their own payment terminal, saves them paying the paypal fees etc and they might have better deals with their own bank for charges. we do the samer thing at work. you can still pay by credit card over the phone and then you will be covered but all sound ok to me.

    Good point, if you do pay over the phone make sure its with a credit, not debit card.

    Now we have more info and know it's legit,yes as above it's to avoid Paypal/Ebay fees if you pay direct,so it's entirely upto you,although if it's a fair few quid i'd ask for discount if you pay direct!

    Just had a look myself,the listings are reportable stating that in caps though about ringing/ordering direct,its soliciting off Ebay sales.

    ebay is problematic enough without having to then call and pay by phone?

    The seller does take paypal and a host of other payment methods. Just ignore what they have put in description and pay via paypal.

    i would use my credit card before pay pal anyway as you can stop a payment up to 64 days after the transaction and as you are dealing with the seller instead of a middle man there is less haste
