    Its complicated to stop idiots and fraudsters selling stuff on ebay. The best way of recieving the money is from paypall.

    The direct debit is so Ebay can collect the fees from your bank account. How you get the money from your auction winner is completely up to you. I prefer bank transfers - that way there are no third person fees to pay and it's easier than a cheque.

    Personally, I've always found selling on Ebay as easy as falling off a chair.

    1) You have to register a debit/credit card to a) pay your seller fees (listing fee + % of final price the object sells for)b)make everything nice and safe so that people who are banned etc can't re-register with the same card making fraud a freat deal less likely

    2) eBay is based on trust, you read feedback on members to deciede who to do business with. I always deal in cheques, once a purchase is made at the end of an auction, contact is made, and payment/shipping is organised. The seller waits for payment before dispatching the object. It is very safe, and takes less than 5 minutes to set up, and maybe a bit of time to failiarise yourself - not complicated at all!

    I've figured out how to put up a few items to auction, they are up for auction now. I have also set up PayPal and specified that they can pay by cheque or bankers draft or whatever it called. How do the buyers pay using bank transfer though? Do you give them your bank details like account no etc? Wouldn't this be a bit 'dangerous' though as fraudsters could potentially have access to your bank account with these details couldn't they? It might sound a bit stupid but I'm new to ebay never bought or sold on it before. Bit worried how im going to sort out payment because i've already got a bidder for one of my items and it has met reserve. But i suppose ill jus cross that bridge when I come to it hope an hope I dont **** it up.

    giving away your bank details isn't really a security threat - you only need to give them your name, account number and sort code. This is the stuff that is printed on your cheques. If you are worried about not getting paid, or non-delivery check out escrow.com

    yea paypal is good, or you can always ask them to send cheques...etc. I have to say that it was much easier to sell stuff before because of less competition when it first started.
