Apparently, he sells many speakers through eBay. I live in Los Angeles, California, and told him if he ca ship.
I dont know if i should trust him. He says to i can pay though paypal.
His eBay Username is Arch_arrivals.
Should he ship first then i pay or should i pay first then he ships?
I never bought anything online that is not from Amazon, so i am worried.
Can you give me some advice before purchasing the speaker from him?
I've done a ton of transactions through Paypal throughout the years. Paypal charges 3.xx% in fees for the transaction, but offers protection for the buyer. If you do not receive your item, you would file a complaint and Paypal would contact the seller. If the seller does not respond. Paypal will refund you your money and go after the seller.
When paying with Paypal, just make sure you document the item and the item description in the notes or details portion of the transaction. That way it's documented and you have that to fall back to if the item does not arrive as described
