Post How to avoid scams on ebay when selling to buyers

1. Always get delivery confirmation - in the case where the buyer attempts to claim back the money then you have proof. Make sure that it is one of paypal's approved couriers.

2. If you are getting an item collected in person make sure that they pay cash on delivery and you have someone with you at the time.

3. Check the amount of feedback (must be a significant number, not 2) and the date since the last feedback was left.

4. If communication isn't being responded to then that can be suspicious activity.

5. Also, if more than one person contacts you about collection, always refund paypal and make sure that they pay cash on delivery.

This is from my experience of selling on ebay - i hope you find it useful.

Please read the Rules

You can easily avoid many scams with the payment method that you use - whether you are a buyer or a seller. eBay owns Paypal, and in most cases, Paypal is the payment method you should use. First, as a buyer, if you are scammed or less than satisfied with the item when it arrives, you can dispute the charge easily, and demand a refund. The seller must reply and show proof that the item was shipped, and that it arrived in the condition that you expected, or Paypal will return your funds to your account.

Haha yeah agreed!
People that want an item sent over the other side of the world and want to pay you 300% more than you want.

Also people that win your item and dont get back to you!
