Safe to buy off this site with Paypal?

Postby PACRX1 » Sat Mar 15, 2014 10:50 am

Hi, Ive never bought anything off here but sold a few things. Im a regular Ebay seller so im not worried about selling to ppl as much as I am buying from ppl I do not know & have no idea what there past sellings went. Maybe a rep status would be a good idea so this site can get rid of scammers even if they come & do it 1 time & never come back they still screwed that 1 person & it could be anyone. So thats my question....how safe is it to buy from ppl on this site with Paypal? Has there been any problems in the past?

No safer than buying off eBay, maybe even safer.

Read and search a members feedback review, use common sense and good judgement.
If it sounds fishy or too good to be true, it likely is.
Read up on PayPal as well, they do have buyer protection and other things in place to help you out if a deal goes bad.

Most sellers will offer the option of payment sent as a "gift" or the buyer covers the 4% PayPal fees.
For those that don't know, if the payment is sent as a "gift", there is no PP fee attached to it, but the flipside is, there is little to no recourse if the seller isn't legit or the item is damaged/broken or flat out doesn't show up.
When in doubt, as a buyer, follow your gut instinct.

I myself let people make the choice themselves, either gift the payment or cover the fees, makes no difference to me.
