Hey,

Was wanting to sell my PSP with custom firmware, but since its not allowed on ebay I thought i'd sell here for the 1st time.

How can you go about making a safe trade? since if someone pays with paypal I would have thought they could just revert the payment once the goods arrived?

Thinking maybe best to just say local pickup only, looking for some advice

EDIT: I put selling on gumtree by mistake on the title! oops!

I've had a read through the rules, but I still can't really tell the part about how safe it is using paypal for taking payment (even if not as a gift). Any advice on this?

Should be fine if it isn't a gift. If your selling you dont need to worry about it being paypal gift or not as your receiving the money. If you are paying by gift make sure the seller has good feedback. All I can say really, look at post count and feedback and you should be fine :thumbsup:

Paypal gift is safer, but not fool proof. It can still be reversed IF the transaction is reported as fraudulent OR the funding source bounces, ie the DD.

When you pay by gift you can do it from your bank, that is requested by DD, if it bounces or is cancelled you will have a reversal.

the best advice really is to follow all selling/buying guidelines, if something doesnt feel right then dont deal

paypal gift isnt safer at all. If you bought an item with it and they dont send it, they can claim it was just a gift.

but being a new user, most wont want to pay by ppg anyway. @OP you'll probably going to need to send any items first until you get 2+ feedback, although others may still be willing to pay first its unlikely

I know the same advice still stands about payments, which is what he asked, chances of paypal reversal, if he accepts any form of payment by paypal, it can be reversed, by being reported as fraudulent or if the funding source bounces so he needs to be savvy, follow the rules and be careful.

There are scamming buyers in the world as well as sellers, being obviously new he could be a target for this, probably why he asked about paypal reversals:thumbsup:

Alright thanks for the advice everyone I may just put pickup only and hope someone is close by who wants it.

if you feel uncomfortable for your 1st few sales, you can always stipulate you will only sell to someone with over a certain amount off feedback, i know there are people who get ripped off on here, but there is also thousands of sales that have gone without a hitch and also alot that have been ripped off have done so because they didnt follow guidelines so had nothing to go on
