    However, he needs to pay via paypal

    why is that?

    is that something you are imposing or him?

    Just making sure you’re aware of the old – I’ll pay by paypal, and pickup, then open a dispute saying not received goods scam…

    you can always do a partial refund via paypal after he has collected if it’s a legit buyer. Or if you auction had the local collection option he should be able to select it when paying.

    DO NOT ACCEPT PAYMENT BY PAYPAL IF HE’S COLLECTING.

    Only option is for him/her to pay Paypal gift, just give him your email address OR he pays cash. If he pays by regular PayPal and collects he could later say he never received the item. As you’ll have no proof of delivery you’ll lose your item and money.

    +1, get him to pay cash if he’s collecting

    As above… Never receive PayPal and allow collection scam

    All it takes is a hacked account and you lose the item and have to give a refund!!!

    I had alloys/tyre auction cancelled twice as I said ‘collect/cash’.

    Why does the buyer want to pay by pp if collecting? Only legit reason would be credit card funded purchase.

    he mailed me, to say he needs to put it on a credit card and only lives about 30 miles away.

    If its legit its much easier for me, but now im concerned if its a scam

    I wouldn’t risk it personally, if he’s that genuine he’d paypal a friend using his CC and get them to give him the cash.

    Ask for ID if paying by PP and collecting?

    Ask him/her to sign a copy of the advert print out?

    I’m sure if all is kosha they will be sine with the above or such like.

    Failing that preempt it all going wrong and wee in their shoes once they take them off….

    Just say too busy to collect.

    Save postage: 30 miles each way? = same cost.

    Hi

    Sold a bike on Ebay, buyer wants to collect and hence save the postage. However, he needs to pay via paypal.

    Does anyone know how i can amend the automatic paypal amount when he comes to pay to be minus the postage?

    Thanks
