The only manner that is secure and protects you the buyers is to purchase the car through the eBay motors auction listing. You will have the option of paying via Paypal, Check, Money Order, etc.

The eBay Motors Vehicle Purchase Protection (VPP) program provides protection of up to $50,000 against certain losses associated with some types of fraud. You are automatically enrolled in the program at no charge when you complete the purchase of an eligible vehicle on the eBay Motors site (motors.ebay.com).

Participation in the VPP program is subject to the following eligibility requirements:

You have successfully completed the purchase of a vehicle* priced at more than $100 from one of the following categories on the eBay Site:

    • Car and Truck
    • Motorcycle
    • Go Kart, Scooter, and Moped
    • ATV
    • Personal Water Craft
    • Snowmobile
    • Boat
    • Bus
    • Commercial Truck
    • RV or Camper
    • Race Car (not street legal)
    • Trailer (non-RV)
    • Dune Buggy / Sand Rail

    Note:
    * You will be deemed to have successfully completed the purchase if you receive confirmation in your "My eBay" that you have successfully won, or purchased, an item through an auction, Buy It Now, or Best Offer.

    Your eBay account, and the account of the seller, had an eBay Site feedback rating of zero or above as of the listing's end date and your account is in good standing (i.e. not suspended) at the time the reimbursement request is filed.
  1. You have not filed a VPP reimbursement request in the last 6 months.

    You, the seller, the vehicle, and the financial institutions on which payment was drawn, and to which payment was made, must have been located in one of the fifty United States or Canada on the listing's end date.
  2. You obtain the VPP Administrator's prior written consent before altering, repairing, selling, or releasing possession of, the vehicle before a determination is made on your Reimbursement Request.

    You are able to provide the VPP Administrator with documentation to substantiate all purchase payments, and/or estimates for repair, related to your reimbursement request within 14 days of filing your reimbursement request.
  3. You comply with the filing deadline and requests from the VPP Administrator (regardless of any shipping delays you experience).

Send the customer an email from your ebay account and save a copy for yourself. Tell him that the payment he sent did not go into the right paypal account. Ask him to cancel this payment so that paypal refunds his money. Tell him that you will send an invoice to him from paypal with a request for payment. Ask him not to re-send his payment until he receives that invoice request from your account. Then go into your paypal account and click on the request money link. Choose the option to send an invoice and enter the information for your EBAY account if you have not already done so. Then send an invoice to that person requesting payment with a note that says the same thing in your email from EABY - tell him to cancel the other payment because it went to the wrong account and ask him to use this account instead. Tell him you have already waited two days and that he only has 1 -2 days more to pay for this item or you send a bidding strike for non payment.

How much i should pay for an ebay item that i purchased?


Find out how much you need to pay for your item:
  • In the listing
  • In My eBay
  • In the confirmation email sent by eBay
  • In the invoice sent by the seller
After you win an item, use the Pay Now button to pay your seller. Once you win an item, the Pay Now button appears:
  • in the listing
  • in My eBay
  • in your confirmation email
When you click the Pay Now button,your payment details will usually be automatically calculated for you.These details will match the shipping and handling, tax, and multiplepurchase discounts in the listing below the item description.



If the payment details aren’t available, or the totals don’t seem accurate, here's what to do:
  1. Reviewthe item description and any emails you've received from the seller. Ifthe seller specified shipping costs in the item description or sent youshipping costs by email, you can manually enter this information on theReview Your Purchase page after you click the Pay Now button.
  2. If you still don't have the information you need, click the Request total from sellerlink next to the seller's user ID. After you request the total, theseller can send you a new invoice that includes the correct paymentinformation.
  3. When the seller sends your invoice, click the Pay Now button in the invoice to see your updated total.

There is a buick for sale in Philadelphia,Pa. and I live in that city and I sent the person 3 e mails that I was interested in his car and would like to see the car. After three e mails still no answer....


Hi!

First check if there is an item number (12 digits) and if there is then locate it on eBay.com or at motors.ebay.com. Check if there's a listing like that. You will need to log in to your eBay account so that you can bid or buy it now the item. If you don't have an eBay account, then you need to create one.

If you see the item in a different site, do not continue. eBay will not cover that item under the buying protection if it's not listed on their site.


Here's how the REAL transactions work on eBay:
1. buyer sees the item listed on eBay
2. buyer buys/bids on the item ( Checking an reading the item description with an understanding of the item that they want to purchase)
3. buyer wins item (the buyer can now request the phone number of the seller if the buyers has concerns about the item.)
4. buyer's name appears as winner on the listing
5. item number appears in "Items Won" in buyer's My eBay page
6. seller sends an invoice
7. buyer pays the seller (buyer does not pay eBay)
8. seller ships item/ buyer picks up item


I hope this helps. Have a good one! Don't forget to rate!

PS: Also, do not send check, money order, wire or bank transfer. Check eBay's Accepted Payment methods.

Hi i just sold an item and the money from the item was posted into my account however the money from the shipping and handling was not?


Hi there!
Once your item is sold, the system will generate a fee for that which is called the final value fee. It is a percentage eBay took for successful completed listings but it will be taken away in your bank or credit card at the end or mid of the month depending on your billing cycle. (please check your invoice in the Account tab, right side invoices)
But if the shipping cost is not included in the invoice sent to the buyer, check your listing and make sure that you didn't choose free shipping. If your shipping calculator is set but the buyer paid no shipping cost, you can then ask the buyer to pay for it. You can send the buyer a manual paypal invoice.
Here's how you can create a manual invoice using your PayPal account:


1. Log in to your PayPal account.
2. Click Request Money.
3. Click Create a Money Request or Create an Invoice.
4. Enter the required information.
5. Click Continue.
6. Review the information and click Request Money to send a money request or Send Invoice to send an invoice.

You can also ask several people at the same time. Just enter their email addresses, separated by commas.

I hope this helps. Have a great day!

Hi! it says New activity not applied to invoice: C $1.95 Current Balance: C $27.55 what is this invoice thing that i have to pay? and the buyer did not pay his payment for 6 days, do i still have to pay...


With regard to this, if the buyer didn't pay, file the unpaid item dispute. Once you close the case, you will get a final value fee credit and it will be deducted to the charges in your account.

The New activity not applied to invoice are for the listings that you have which are not included in your billing cycle when the invoice was generated. You can check your account summary page, and scroll to the right, you will see the box there to check your invoice. Choose the month of the invoice and click go. Choose the most recent one (ie April). It will show you the amount that you will need to pay for that billiny cycle (ie March 15-April16) This includes the items that you listed during those times.

Hope this helps. Have a great night!

Do not continue the transaction and do not pay for this item. VPP only works if you purchase an item on eBay motors site. ask the seller for the eBay 12 digit item number so that you can check if this item is a legite listed item on eBay. Do not pay if you do not bid or won the item on eBay site. This is a spoof email. Please forward the messages you got from this seller to spoof@ebay.com so that eBay can investigate this for you
