    I found this item that I really want, it's limited edition et al. I'm the highest bidder but I looked at his feedback and it's all from sellers and not people that have bought off him. Here's the link:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...hippingPayment

    It also seems a bit suspect that he says he's not responsible for shipping damages and doesn't offer insurance. He's the only person with the CD+DVD and the only other way I can get the album is off a Japanese website that I can't navigate at all, it's all in Japanese although I was told I'd be able to get it from there. Anyway, should I go ahead with this bid?

    So I should buy it? I just thought all sellers was a bit unusual, most others for anyone else are from buyers. I'll buy it then.

    The worst that could happen is the item could be lost and I wouldn't be refunded. That reminded me: does the seller get your shipping details automatically or do I have to give them to him/her? One person I bought a DVD off didn't ask for my shipping info and I got the DVD. Another seller (a company) asked me for my shipping details, so how does it work?

    They should get the ones you gave to ebay when you win the auction.

    thats not too bad, you gain more by having the dvd, and you can give them bad rep, but s/he has so much good rep, I doubt they'll be bad

    If you pay with PayPal then you can make a claim against the seller if the item does not arrive. They will look into it and you may get a refund.

    And if you use a Credit Card to fund your PayPal payment, then if PayPal do not refund you then you can do a chargeback via your Credit Card company.

    eBay provide Help boards if anything does go wrong - http://pages.ebay.co.uk/community/chat/index.html

    99.5% of eBay transactions are happy ones. Usually only things go wrong when people go for auctions that are too good to be true.

    Happy eBaying!
