    is it dodgy if an ebay buyer wants to pay via bt?

    just had a question asking me if i would accept bt the person has good feedback etc but i just dont know if these payments can be reserved?
    any advice please?

    Just make sure they don't dump a rubber cheque into your acccount and also wait 24 hrs after any electronic transfer to be safe.

    thanks for that,
    i just want it out the way tbh they have not replied anyway,and they havent oficially made me an offer so i guess maybe they were expecting me to say cheaper than £140,its the ebay fees that pee me off more than pp cuts
    im sure it was £11 odd if i sell @ £160 not sure how much pp will take i presume around a fiver?

    i thnk paypal is almost the same as ebay fees...dont know how some people make it pay tbh

    paypal charge 3.4% + 20p, if its

    paypal charge 3.4% + 20p, if its £1500. So £160 would equate to £5.64 in … paypal charge 3.4% + 20p, if its < £1500. So £160 would equate to £5.64 in Paypal fees.
