    Hi, I have a buyer who wants to buy my facebook fan page via paypal. How can I conduct this transaction as safely as possible? Is there a chance that I could get scammed via paypal somehow?

    I have bought a number of pages. All done through PayPal with no problems. I usually send them half the money, they make me page manager then I send them the other half.

    Well, buying is different then selling. I think they can send the money then reverse the transaction with a paypal dispute because it's virtual property or something like that. I could be wrong, that's why I'm asking the question. Any other advice guys?

    Use escrow.com. Safe at both end.

    If it's a virtual good and they start a dispute, they will lose. If it's anything and they pay with their CC through PayPal and then they file a dispute, they always win. I've been selling services online for years and I've been through it all. You should be safe, unless they're trying to get really sneaky and pay with a CC and then scam you by fraudulently filing a dispute (assuming you actually give them the page).

    Who will send him the money first via WU? There's no way to get your money back.

    I personally would make them pay you as it was a gift so they can not ask PayPal for a refund on the money since it was a gift.

    Then make sure the cash is in PayPal as a gift and then transfer over the information so he can control the page.

    That's good but you know. The buyer will be also sceptical about this. "..what if i send the money and don't get the page?"
    I think escrow is eventually the best option

    All the best

    I would use escrow for both safety, buyer and seller.
    Safe and simply procedure

    Does facebook allow people to sell pages? In any case, don't do paypal.
