Any help would be great guys
From what I gatered from your thread he won your phone and you have just sent him the invoice, if that is so then there is no problem. Just wait if he doesn't pay within 30 days, you can just report him to ebay. Its simple really.
give the guy like 3 days to pay not everyone has the time or he may have to move the payment into his account
once he does pay I was thinking since I am doing dropship do you think I should give him a chinese built high quality Nokia N96 replica or anybody know where I can get cheap Nokia N96 PM
P.SIn the replica description it says US version so ...
If you use paypal you are completely covered, just make them change their postal address in their paypal account. All ebay transactions under $5k are covered by paypal buyer protection I'm pretty sure. You should DEFFINATELY check the Terms of Service of paypal, just to double check you are covered.
I had a really screwed up situation with my sister buying through paypal on dhgate from china and got sent bricks instead of a laptop. Paypal tried really hard not to help us and only helped because we got police and the australian government involved. You can read what happened here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/shit-list/49881-please-help-scammed-dhgate-com-paypal.html
Make sure you send it through registered post and insure it. You could use escrow if you are really uneasy about the transaction:
If you don't use escrow, wait until the money is cleared and actually inside your paypal account before you send it. This takes a few days after the buyer has sent payment, this is to get funds out of their bank, currency exchanges etc etc.
Hope this helps
What do you guys at BHW think?
Thanks for the response http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/22076-chowyoungfat.html, I just hope everything goes well
P.S I do not get things from dhgate or tradetang shit
Any Ebay experts on here who can confirm what http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/22076-chowyoungfat.html is saying?
This transaction is showing all the early signs of a scam. First, the buyer is new with zero feedback. This is a huge red flag. Second, since most people are looking for a deal on ebay, it is surprising a buyer would bid top dollar for any item. Third, they want you to ship to an uncomfirmed paypal address. Another huge red flag.
I would suspect this buyer is using a stolen credit card to make the purchase. I would proceed with extreme caution.
I agree with the above post, I would not send the phone to the winner. I had a guy (that just joined ebay w/zero feedback) bidding $700 on an iPhone which he could've picked up from other ebay vendors for way cheaper. I canceled his bid and moved on.
yeah be really careful, better safe than sorry.
probably a scammer ..
let him pay first..and wait 7 days if u get a chargeback or not
but in my opinion 99,9% a scammer
Your first mistake is you should had required immediate payment now with your buy it now price. That way they could not win it and not pay at that time.
Also ONLY ship to the address they have registered in PayPal so if you get scammed you have some protection under the seller protection program.
Secondly, Cell phones have one of the highest scam rates and non paying bidders on eBay.
Thirdly, if you don't hear from this person within the first 24-hours that he will pay you, or you don't receive payment within the first 3 days, in all my experience on eBay, you Will Not. So then file a non paying bidder notice and relist the auction.
Cell phones can be profitable but the huge problem is running them on auctions. If you do that you can expect a non paying bidder rate of around 50%. The only real way to make sure you get paid is to start your bid at your buy it now price and require immediate payment but then again that costs more upfront money and it will be a little harder to sell.
Other than that your options are limited.
Still stuck with no payment???
Here is there response:
I bought your item with the buy it now button,i need the item in my husband's address in BELGIUM and not my address in U.S,kindly get back to me with the invoice in order for me to make the payment via paypal as soon as possible...My email address is ******************
What do you think guys???
I've been in this position before
Don't ship until you receive payment. PERIOD
Wehn you get payment only ship to a verified address. Use maps.google to check all addresses.
You stated replica in description right?
In title and description I did not say Nokia ever
Is this okay???
