If you want, email me the pics and I'll do it for you mate.

I can't even remember the last time I used/looked on eBay, it's too much hassle now.

with a tracking number for royal mail specuial delivery, it doesnt show anything till its been delivered does it…geezers saying he wants the tracking number for some trainers cos he wasnt in when thye come and they didnt leave a card, so he can tell which post office they are at by the tracking number…is this correct or is he fannying.

not sure, actually if there was a delivery and no one was in it would state on the website that a delivery was attempted, so might not have got there yet

the tracking number is also printed on the receipt from the Post Office if you got one?

Special Delivery it does show stuff I think, Signed For it doesn't show anything until it's been delivered

I won an auction for a D200 and a lense last night. The guy lives about 15 minutes from my house. I want to go and collect the camera tomorrow night, but pay with paypal. He can't take the £25.00 postage off of the total cost. I've said that I'll pay the full amount (inc the postage costs) and that when I go to pick up the camera he can give the £25 cash meaning that I don't pay the postage.

Does this seem fair or will he think I'm trying some dodgy scam?

It seems fair, nothing too weird, over a year ago some guy collected some trainers from my house after winning them, and gave me extra because he was so happy with the condition!

It's extremely dodgy for him as you can claim non-receipt and he's fucked. You should NEVER take paypal for items people are picking up.
However he's already agreed to you picking up and paying by paypal, so giving you £25 shouldn't ring any alarms bells that aren't already ringing. When I bought my D70 I did Paypal and then collected, did the deal but then wanred him why he was taking a risk and probably best not to do it in future.

Cool,

Didn't know about claiming non-receipt. Obviously I'm not going to mess him about like that but he's not to know that.

I'll message him and see what he says.

Cheers GG

If someone refunds me some money via paypal do I need to do anything to claim it? I transferred it at about 10.30 and it was refunded at about 1.30, will it leave my account and then show as refunded (my bank account that is)?
