He wants cash which Is not possible so is asking for postal order,cheque or bank transfer
Only registered in March with no feedback comments
It is a good deal and would really like to buy the goods he is selling
How do you go about doing this?

Why won't PayPal work

I'd be very suspicious.

Nope. Scam alarm should be ringing.

I had an issue paying with paypal on my PC last night. When I clicked paypal choice nothing happened. Worked fine on my phone though.

Is it an iphone or similar you bought? Lots of dodgy sellers for that kind of thing.

@ProfessorLayton1 It is a good deal and would really like to buy the goods he is selling

HOW good a deal? So good it smells a bit off? What are other sellers selling equivalents for? I would be very wary of this already, so many things not quite right...

Don't do it. PayPal is there for a reason and so is feedback.

It is a bar chair and it is ex display so it is cheap.
I thought if I arrange for a courier and pay only 25 percent before that and the rest after the courier picks up ?

nope, don't do it, you're leaving yourself wide open to being ripped off. And if you do, unless you paid with PayPal, eBay won't offer you any assistance whatsoever.
