am guessing it's a big/expensive item so he may want to have it collected from yours and delivered next day by parcel force or w/e? ask them!

I sell on ebay quite a bit, often Ive sold off ebay, never had any problems, but my items are worth about £70 so with fees it costs me about £10 worth of fees for each item incl paypal.
Sometimes you gotta trust your instinct with someone of that feedback I would trust someone who has been registered a long time with a lot of feedback also.
What the buyer means about arranging delivery himself is that, you have to wrap the parcel so its protected, he will arrange and pay for the courier to come and collect from your house, you have to wait in. Sometimes this can be a bit of hassle if the courier dont turn up.
a tip for future always regardless of how inexpensive the item is send recorded, always make sure you have a signature.

Ok thanks,

ive just listed another item using the buy it now or best offer option, a buyer with 0% feedback places an offer of £100 instead, so inevitably it is sold to that person, ive contacted the buyer to ask him if he plans on buying the item but he has not responded yet.

will i have to pay final value fees on this if im forced to relist it?

Can anyone adivse me on what to do? And if i send the item via recorded delivery, even if the buyer starts a dispute with paypal(ive heard buyer nearly always wins) will i win if i have a signature.

thnx

thanks.
