Help! How to sell a Blackberry on Ebay?

Found 9th Feb 2010
Hi all,

Im hoping that you will be wiser than me...

I have been trying to sell an unwanted upgrade Blackberry on Ebay and for the second (!) time the person who bought is was some type of 'Paypal scammer'!

I have changed my buyer preferences, but still someone with 0 Feedback who joined a day ago managed to buy it!!!!


Any advice?

Thanks

Hi I recently sold a Blackberry phone on Ebay and mine was an unwanted upgrade. To be sure you do not get scammed you must list as a 'Buy it Now' and be sure to select 'instant payment required when listing. This way if someone selects the BIN button the sale does not go through unless they pay. Also make sure you have said in your preferences that you will sell to UK only. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Thanks for advice, I have done all this apart from giving a second payment option i.e. cheque. Do I need to remove that option to avoid scammers from buying it? :oops:

Select the option that says they must have a registered card as well & include in your listing that you know all the scams so not to waste your time.

Do not offer a second payment because you could get a non payer or scammer. Make it Paypal only and 'immediate payment required'. You can only choose this if you are accepting Paypal only.

Ditto the above. It's the only way to sell high value items like phones on ebay now - UK only/BIN with immediate paypal payment required.
