Be aware of unsolicited purchase requests or items sold by new members made via PM.
We know everyone has started somwhere but precautions should be taken.
Members should NEVER pay by means of "money order", "PayPal Gift" or other uninsured payment methods. When dealing with new members, only insured payment methods should be used, such as insured Paypal.
When paying by PayPal, make sure your trading partner has got a registered address and is verified.
Once you decided to go ahead with the transaction, make sure you apply as much information about the item and shipping details into the message box you can use from PayPal during a transaction, in order to aviod any mis-understandings.
Not necessarily applicable to low value transactions, but:
Sellers - Consider for yourself, how you despatch an item, even if a cheaper non- tracked shipping method is requested. In the event of something going wrong or the package being lost, it is difficult proving your case to PayPal if the buyer decides to make a claim against you. If possible, consider using the PayPal postage feature.
Buyers - Please consider the Sellers predicament and for your own peace of mind, accept shipping with some sort of tracking. The price difference is really not much.
Be nice and leave feedback for the seller or buyer in the tread etc., where the transaction has taken place. Try to solve any issues you may have in private, it will help no one if an issue is dragged out in the open and getting others involved.
Should things indeed go wrong and an amicable solution cannot be found, the best course of action is to start a PayPal dispute. Also, in case of a fraudulent transaction, please do ALL correspondence via a Paypal claim and DO NOT be tempted/duped in closing the claim until you have the result you desire. Once closed, you cannot reopen another claim on the same transaction!
