Lots of knowlegable folks here, but you are probably right.
The folks that frequent the eBay Coins and Paper Money discussion board should be able to answer any, and all, questions you have.
You can see an example in any one of my auctions. I don't want to use this as an excuse to advertise them, so I won't post a link. My eBay name is the same as here though.
One thing that annoys me about Auctiva is that when you click on thumbnails to view larger images, you are taken away from the auction page and onto a pointless Auctiva page.
I know eBay makes the description unchangeable once there are bids left or less than 12 hours remaining. Is it possible this is the reason it happened to you?
Question: Anyone else use Auctiva insurance? Seems like a good and have used it but have never had to make a claim. Has anyone had to file an Auctiva insurance claim?
I have no issues to report.
When i see a item i like, i enter save. Then i e-mail the seller , and ask if he will accept a money order. about 90%
says they will . If the item is ok, i enter him in favorite sellers and make a note accepts money order . At this time i have 7 saved.:eating:
Just curious . . . why do you prefer this to paypal? (I use paypal -- it's quick and easy as a buyer. Plus . . . in all my transactions, I had one dispute. The seller was unresponsive until I filed a "paypal dispute form" (or whatever it's called) and the seller then refunded immediately).
I agree that there is a certain level of protection typically offered with using your credit card through Paypal over a check or money order in the case of a dispute. However, educated buyers like SNDMN59 notice that you can typically weed out most of the bad apples just by looking at feedback, an also by getting a feel for them through their email communication.
By the way, when using Paypal, I recommend always using a CC over a bank account so you have them to back you up. Don't trust that Paypal will take care of you. They are neither on the buyer or seller's side...they are on Paypal's side. Paypal is one of the greediest, most unethical companies I have ever dealt with. And I haven't even been burnt, so I am not speaking out of bitterness. I just see all of their subtle decisions made for one sole purpose: getting as much money as they possibly can.
And I had one good experience . . . when I asked for a refund on an item, and demanded that the postage part get refunded before I sent it back -- the seller complied and I saw it reflected in my account within 2 minutes. I'm not sure how I could've done that, that quickly, without paypal.
I like to usea money order because i have the receipt to show that i actually paid for it, also i do not give bank information on the internet,
Another dealer e-mailed me back and said yes to a money order .When i
get a positive yes on money order i put in a file under e-bay money orders, this way if i win a bid or buy it now i have proof of the transaction. And last i dont think its right to be told you must or should use pay pal in this situation.:secret:
I'm certainly not trying to convince anyone to use any particular method of payment. It's good that there are different choices for different styles.
But I do want to note that paypal emails you a receipt, and a transaction number, etc., and so one has a receipt with any payment made.
I just like being able to pay for an item 30 seconds after winning an auction, without having to go to a bank, or writing a check, or using a stamp, or whatever.
But, hey, to each his/her own.
I agree a 100% whatever a person is comfortable with .
Your on my list tank you very much.
i meant thank you
