Dealing with New member/buyer

p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Dealing with New member/buyer


I have someone interested in a lens I have for sale, but the person is brand new here, has zero posts and no feedback. They'd use paypal, so I'm wondering what keeps a buyer from being able to purchase an item and then filing a dispute over some made-up reason to try and get the item for free? I used to sell a bit on amazon, but I hated the return policy when people used an item for 29 days then returned it just because. I've mostly only dealt with established members here, but that being said, I was once new with zero feedback as well...

Answer: Nothing keeps a buyer from doing that.

As were all of us. Give them a call and talk to them...this goes a long way in building trust.

It is up to YOU to vet this person. There are many free websites that will establish at least name, address, phone number. Is he a "verified PP Member"? Ask for references....Become proactive in your own well being!
