I've sold my bike on eBay this weekend, and the guy buying has been pretty poor with contacting me.
I had to email him to say thanks for buying etc etc. He emailed back, jjust saying he would like to pick up in person, (fair enough) but didn't say anything about how he would pay, what his name was, or offering to ring or anything, which I think is just courteous. Few hours later I send another message saying I haven't received payment by pay pal, he emails back, thought we could do cash, save you on PayPal fees. Ok I think...
Later I found his number on the EBay invoice, rang him and he was almost oh yeah the bike. I've arranged to meet him and pay cash for the bike. Not long back he texted suggesting I CANCEL Ebay, and we go halves on the sellers fees ie the 10% fee that EBay now put on bike sales..
Would you be inclined to do this... It will save me some cash.
To be honest it hasn't felt quite right from the outset...however his ebay feedback is good, he is currently selling a few brand new mobile phones on there. When I tried to dig about his biking knowledge he did know you could no longer get hold of the brand of bike, but he didn't ask any questions at all.
