Hello, Just wondering is paypal safe, when considering I wish to post my ebay listing abroad (hungary). I have heard horror stories about overseas buyers and payment issues etc. The fella has 152 100% feedback and seems serious but you cant be too careful I suppose!

Cheers

Why d you say that?
The charges are only slightly higher than a Merchant account which is the other way of taking payment by credit Card But you don't have to jump though hoops to get a paypal account !

OK PayPal is more expensive if the payment is from a Debit card or Bank Account but they add a Credit card type garentee to all non gifts so charge for it!

If they pay by paypal it gives you an address you must send it to in order to be covered,you must also keep the proof of postage.I always check the paypal transaction details as this will confirm there address is on file and ok to send to.Usually checking there feedback and how long they have been a member is a good indicator and keep all communication thru the e-bay message service.Hope this helps

As an aside...I'd wondered why PayPal automatically give out e-mail addresses between seller and buyer these days?


I wondered if they were 'hoping' any disputes might get sorted out between the two parties and they wouldn't have to bother with it[;)]
