Never send a gift payment unless it is an actual gift and you are not receiving anything in return. Always pay good to ensure you are protected.

Use a calculator to figure out how much it would be to pay it by goods and they receive the same amount. If they refuse the goods payment for a bit more to get the same amount, they really are trying to screw you.

Why screw ebay out of their money,they offer you a venue that gives you millions of potential buyers.
Never understood why someone would sell off of ebay when listing an item on ebay.
REport the person and leave the item up and move on.
Unless integrity is less important than money

And WallyWorld supports China too much with selling their imports but we still shopping there right? Just like we still need fuel & we still need classifieds (eBay).

True that nobody minds which is why we choose sports card forums like this to sell on sometimes.
