I've seen a pushchair I would love. Its cash on collection, buyer has good feedback and the general 'feel' of it seems fine (good clear pictures, seller lives in a nice area).

If I do cash on collection should I ask for a handwritten receipt? I was going to ask him if he would accept a cheque, but I suppose he could think I'm trying to pull a fast one.

Or should I insist we do it via paypal so I have proof?

cash on collection is preferred, people have been doing chargebacks or filing items not recieved when paing for stuff with paypal and collecting it.

check the pram over thoroughly when you collect it, and ask for two receipts to be ready for you both to sign, and for ou both to retain one.

I often pay cash on collection when picking up larger items, and am also happy to accept cash on collection when selling. Never had an problems - you could ask for a receipt if you like, but I don't really see the point? If you're more comfortable with having a record of your purchase I'm sure the seller would be OK with accepting paypal as long as it was in their account before you collected (although personally I would prefer the cash in order to avoid the paypal fees that would incur!

thank you smile. I'm sure the seller is fine, so I'll just ask him to do a receipt.
