Quote:If I deal with a seller who has no rating I ask them to send the goods before payment - they can read my ratings to see if I'm trustworthy enough to accept the offer.
Quote:Most of the problems people have with PayPal stem from ignoring the service agreement they agreed to when signing up. If you follow the rules, you'll be fine. One thing I can't stand is when people say in their ads to "use the Personal Transfer option in PayPal, there's no fee that way." Well, that's true. But if you're using that there is also no protection for the buyer since by sending the money under the Personal tab, you're implying that it's a gift. There is ostensibly no product in PayPal's eyes. There's no way to prove it, either. Also, if you have a bunch of large dollar-amount transactions sent as Personal, you better believe PayPal is going to come sniffing around your account. Again, you just have to carefully read the rules and regulations and you'll be fine. The moral: if you're using PayPal to buy goods online, use the proper method. The 3% is well worth the protection it affords.
