Reminder with PayPal that there is a difference between sending funds to friends and family and a commercial business. One has buyers protection and the other does not.Everything seems legit. I’m using my PayPal credit account for added insurance.
Yes I asked a TON OF QUESTIONS! Just so I could get his responses in writing.Ask all the questions up front. If the seller states “works great” or “no problems”, and you get it. “As is” or not. eBay and/or Paypal will step in for a misrepresentation. I’ve been there.
Does the highlighted Ebay ikon on the bottom indicate it is an ebay sale? If so wouldn't a Paypal payment be protected?Note that any EBay listing that is sold "as is", is just that. See if the listing claims that he will 'accept returns' with a cretin length of time. If so, Paypall should help.
Since it is such a large purchase I understand your concerns, and I would feel the same.
E-Bay and PayPal are one in the same company. And yes, they are very good with managing buyer/seller disputes,almost to the point I'm afraid to even try selling anything on their site. I think there are more buyers trying to cheat the sellers than vice versa.
