Default selling outside ebay

Hi
I routinely get emails asking me to end auction early, as they desperately need it now. I sometimes have said to them, look Ive got 2 of these Items, I will let auction run but sell other to you, just give me your paypal email and I invoice them and sell it and once or twice theyve paid my googlecheckout.

ok as these are hot veros, and hard to list too often, this suits me, but I know I am risking my accounts. I have sometimes had people not reply when they hear the deal, but i dont think or know of a time Ive actually been reported yet for this to ebay.

Whats your experiences of this......

well through paypal, one time i did outside ebay transaction and the a few weeks later after the seller got the item, filed a chargeback. since it was outside of ebay transaction = not covered :( ($315)

Many others went through with no problem though

Default and Eve handed him a vero...

of course, I agree. Tempting though isnt it?!

How do you with emailing, alot of buyers contact me via ebay button, and I ask them to contact me direct and give them my email address. Some of them dont understand and keep replying via ebay. Whats the deal on putting your email address on a reply, from my previous questions on the forum, they say you hit reply via gmail and you go straight to their email address and ebay doesnt see it. Not sure though as sometimes if I do that i still get a reply from buyer via ebay again. confusing.

I have done this before and not been caught but yes when you do this you are risking your account because ebays considers this selling outside of them.

they dont really do anything to your account, its more of "if something goes wrong, i told you so"

You can always send the "buyer" a Paypal invoice and click on the "services" button or something else that is NOT merchandise on the invoice.
Then Paypal does not ask for a shipment number and they can not file a SNAD dispute because there was technically no merchandise trading hands according to the Paypal invoice.

Yes, but all the buyer has to do is file a chargeback complaint with his CC company and paypal will hand over the money.

Default nananana heeey goodbye

Im thinking of getting rid of gmail because of this... I cant see email address of the questions I get and I could do way more sales direct, but gmail means I cant deal with them direct, and if they I try to give email address using proper format they get deleted by ebay, this gmail is a recipe for being caught, so in the words of the great bananarama.....

hey if you are lost, imagine how I feel...

what I meant was regarding the original topic, selling outside ebay, with gmail I have to answer someone who wants to buy without being able to
converse straight with their address, because i cant see it when they enquire,
my replies are never in the sent box on ebay but if I send them a reply from my gmail it goes via ebay and ebay erase any correcly formatted email address you try and give out.
