Bank transfers whilst selling on eBay? Warning lights are flashing.

Having said that, it's curious that he's close and you could take a system to test the card before purchase. Does he know you're so close? And if you tell him that you're willing to collect in person, will he get cold feet I wonder

@Bayonett PriestThe only way I could see his use of bank transfer being acceptable is he may be trying to avoid eBay fees, on an item that expensive they'd be sizeable.

Any mention of using paypal outside of ebay, or any other payment method, will more than likely get his account temporarily banned. Someone came to collect car parts from me once and said he'd pay on collection, eBay read the private messages and gave me a three day holiday for agreeing to that...

and he said he wants me to cancel the item and then he will put it back in! does he want me to give  the personla link that you get when you put something up for sale to not pay the 10% provision?

Uh I believe you can if you've not payed, it'll be an option when you go onto 'My eBay' and go to the 'Purchases' tab I think.

@Bayonett Priest I don't actually know...it encourages them to message you to discuss it but I'm not sure if they can actually refuse. Someone else might have to help there

Go in person. Try it on his computer to make sure it works fine. Monitor it's clock speed/usage and performance, heat.

 

Then if all good pay and enjoy.

 

This is what I would do because too eazy to get scammed nowadays.

No, you can cancel it. There is no obligation to pay. If you don't, you just get a -1 point in your feedbacks stuff like that, but at the end, what does that change if you are only a buyer ?

 

Will a store decline you a sell because your profile says you did cancel orders in the past ? Never. They will always accept and take a chance, hope that you pay, who the hell would refuse a customer.

 

Nothing to worry here, if you don't want to buy it anymore you simply cancel the item and send e-mail to the guy and tell him you decided to cancel order he can't refuse or oblige you to pay.

 

I've done that multiple times I just send e-mails to the ebay account I bought from and tell them to cancel order that I made mistake or decided to not buy. They are always been happy to help cancelling it, they actually are happy you tell them because it helps them react fast to relist and not waste time.
