    Paypal

    More info needed folks

    If I paid £2100 into a paypal account on Wednesday morning, and then picked up the parts on the evening of that day would the money be safe untill I have the parts?

    I thought there was a function on Paypal that lets the money show up in another persons account but they can not access it untill you have the part/item etc.

    Also what would the charge be on this and who would pay the charge?

    Cheers all

    You mean like an escrow service ? Dont think paypal has anything like that im afraid, the money is available right away.

    The charge would be taken off the money you send to the seller. So really he pays it.
    im bored !

    right I thought I may have the two mixed up. Anyone know what the costs would be to him? Also is there no way to do the transaction safely from both parties sides of the deal? £2100 is a lot of money.

    TBH thats what I want to do (meet up and pay cash) however the seller wants a little comitment from me that I will turn up as well, as I can not get the cash for 5 working days. Hence doing it via paypal.

    This is true I must admit it was the orginal plan to pay cash he has changed his mind though after advice from his brother in law.

    /\ That's what I would've suggested. Except that he might just not turn up. £100 easy.
    Cant understand why he wouldnt want to meet up, except for fear that you and some mates would mug him for the bits and run off without paying. That's why meet at a police station is a good idea! Suggest you ask him to meet somewhere where you will both feel safe. You dont want to get jumped either, if him and his mates know your comming down with £2100 cash!! So meet somewhere safe!
