dajohu, could you elaborate on the 'phone calls from customs' part you mentioned? I wasnt even aware i needed to provide a phone number when i shipped something?
I actually already told him no, but im still curious if i ever have an international sale oppurtunity again. Just some good stuff to know.
Well in thinking back, I know the very first time I purchased anything on e-bay, guess what? I didn't have any feed back either. I mean geez come on. I have only brought a few things on e-bay over the years, so I probably only have about 10 feed back if that many. I would be more concerned about buying from someone with little or no feedback than selling to one.
PayPal offers some pretty good protection. Not as good as a face to face transaction where you hand me the money and I hand you the item, but pretty good protection none the less. And as long as PayPal says that so and so just made a cash deposit of X dollars to your account before you even wrap the item, whats the problem.
You 2 reach an understanding..... Once your PayPal payment clears and the cash has been depositied into my account, I ship the laptop to whatever address in the world you want it shipped to. You agree that you will pay shipping, insurance and whatever else. Also you deal with the customs people. Remember, you paid for it, it's your computer.
On the other hand I would refuse to do any kind of e-bay deal with anyone asking me for any kind of personal information. They don't need it, I'm not gonna give it, end of story. If they got a problem with that attitude theyh can move on down the road.
