Before you send anything to that buyer, you might want to get to know them, especially if youre selling them a high-ticket item that you couldnt afford to lose. Even if the buyer has paid, the PayPal transaction could still end up being reversed, leaving you out of pocket. So how do you figure out if you can trust your buyer?
Look at their feedback for others. Go to their feedback page and click Left for Others. If they leave a lot of negatives for their sellers, then you should try to get away from them as fast as you can if you do deal with them, make sure not to leave your feedback first. You should consider a negative someone has left to be just as bad as a negative left for them.
Look at feedback from sellers. Click From Sellers. You might find that they have more complaints from sellers than from buyers or, on the other hand, it might be the other way around. Some people really are just better at selling than buying, or vice versa.
Pay attention to bid retractions. If they have a high number of bid retractions, you should regard this as a red flag that something might be wrong.
