I don't see anything fishy in wanting it dispatched today. If I buy something I don't want to wait for it any longer than absolutely necessary.

So when the seller has listed the service they use, you, a person with 0 feedback, will send 5 emails in 30min asking when it will be dispatched?

cancel the order

better to take the bad feedback than get robbed of £500 (PS5?)

next time re-list with a note saying 'no less than 100 feedback'

they probably think you bought it to flog for more on ebay, and thus dont feel bad for robbing you and claiming all their money back once its dispatched

Make sure you send it to address on the PayPal email which should be the same as the one on the Order Details.

Send the tracking number to eBay as soon as you know it.

Forget the photos and video - complete waste of time.

 

You don't record serial number when you sell valuable electronics?

Bruce is right, but with your extra information, yes, it sounds a bit fishy.

FWIW I have bought a lot of stuff on ebay, mostly s/h games and specialist gear. I've never had any issues. I have never listed anything for sale.

Nah it's a PS4. The 5 is staying!

I always know serial numbers and I show photos of them on my listings. There's no harm in photographing them but what are you going to do with them?

 

Print and hang on the wall :D 

I'm aware I may be slightly paranoid here. I just don't like being nagged by a rando.

I sold a camera, then buyer claimed it was smashed in post. They didn't keep packaging or photos of packaging, so I suspect trying to defraud me . Photo of serial number might have helped.

Cancel sale (I've had many bad transactions, all to zero feedback people).

You can set in eBay preferences minimum feedback level needed for buyers.

You’re right I’m cancelling. He’s just messaged again - have you sent it yet?

I set the prefs but the minimum seems to be -1 now.

Me too. I have 100% positive feedback (over 300 purchases) and have never sold anything. I only use "Buy it now", never auction and have only had one real problem with a new sealed item that was faulty, an electrical item with an earth leakage fault. The manufacturer said it sounded like a manufacturing fault and to return it via the retailer for replacement. The seller, a private individual, said I must have damaged it because it was new and in a sealed box. One call to Ebay and they stepped in and refunded my money without question.

Yes do record these items but you should have listed them on the original ebay advert, to prevent faulty return scams. 

BTW Paypal will most liklely make you wait 21 days to release the funds, to protect the seller, as it's a high value item. I sold a iphone 7 on 7th Nov for £265, still waiting until 28th Nov to get my money released from paypal. 

I even added tracking details of Royal mail special delivery, and have had positive feedback from the buyer, funds still locked up.

Sold a PS4 to someone on ebay with 0 feedback and he’s nagging me now to dispatch today. 

Smells fishy.

What can I do to protect myself? Will take photos of the serial number, video of it working etc.

People can and do return you a box with a house brick in it and will still keep the item and their money. I would advise against selling on eBay.

To be honest ebay will side with the buyer if they claim there is an issue but in that case they need to return the item to you to get their money back.  If they say there is an issue email them and say it needs to be returned and be signed for when you get it. 

To be honest the buyer is probably sat at home on Furlough wondering if they will get the PS4.
