    Just be sure of the seller if you have not done it before, follow the … Just be sure of the seller if you have not done it before, follow the guidelines, you are covered under buyer complaint on here. Which basically means if the seller empties there account and you have a problem, you will struggle to get your money back.............



    well i quite trust the buyer, but was wanting to do the paypal thing just incase, they got lots of positive feedback, i just dont know how to get the money to them, when i tried it said there was no fees to be charged to me ??? i thought it would add charges like it does with ebay !!!

    they paid you via gift, there is no comebacks if sent via gift


    i assume you meant seller, and you are the buyer, buyers dont pay fees

    if you pay via gift it means neither of you pay fees, but there is no comeback from either side, if you chose to pay any other way there can be a claim put in but unless there is money in the account you wont get anywhere, the seller will pay fees if they have an upgraded account, how have they asked you to pay, paypal gift no doubt

    remember and get all the sellers details as well. If they aren't forthcoming then dont deal no matter how much feedback they have.

    you get no more protection either way if he clears his account, you would need to know how much the fee will be to add it to your payment

    excellent you should be fine, From memory if you select the pay for good options there is an option when you go to confirm the payment if you want to pay the fees. Not 100% sure on that though.

    he will get the charges, a buyer never pays fees, only the seller, he should be abole to tell you what the fees are going to be, hes sold 100's of things
