- Bank transfer for buying goods (ebay)
looking to get something for my motor off ebay but its 150miles away, its pretty hefty so I have asked the guy if I could arrange a courier to get it collected – he is fine with this but has said he would prefer cash on collection or bank transfer. Havent used this method through ebay before – has anyone else is it secure, If I never received anything – could I get my money back? (200quid)Posted 5 years agoasturaMember

Under no circumstances would I accept anything but cash if someone was collecting and bank transfer is as good as cash.
Otherwise the seller is open to scams as the buyer can open a claim and you have no proof of posting/delivery to say you sent the items.
Seems if it was a collection only listing then it’s your lookout if you aren’t able to collect.Posted 5 years agobitasuiteMember
Sorry for the hijack but I’m in a similar situation. Saw a bike with a £1400 buy it now. I offered £1200 before the auction finished and he said no. Now the auction has ended and the item didn’t sell he’s emailed to ask if I’m still interested and he can do £1300 PayPal or £1260 transfer. As the auction has finished it presumably won’t be a eBay transaction anyway will it? So is there any more protection for me to use paypal?Posted 5 years agoskidsMember
cash or bank transfer is pretty standard if you are collecting in person but seeing as it’s not you that’s doing the collecting you probably don’t want to pay before you have the goods in your poseesion, and the guy selling probably wants it in advance i guess, which I wouldn’t doPosted 5 years ago
