From: Fat Sam on
I've just sold a car, and the buyer paid instantly by paypal before I even
got a chance to suggest he pays in cash when he collects it.

Now my concern quite naturally is that he can come and collect the car and
then claim the goods were never delivered as there's no POD, and claw the
money back through Paypal.
I may just be displaying signs of paranoia, as the guy has 100% feedback and
might be genuinely honest, but for some reason I have an alarm bell ringing
and telling me that this might be risky

Is there any way I can protect myself from this?
Perhaps get him to sign a document when he comes to collect stating that he
has taken receipt of the car?
Or am I just being a bit silly?

I'm open to any advice available.

Refund his payment and ask him to pay cash? That would be my choice - but
why did you give a paypal option in the listing?

Pull his details, give him a call, and suggest that if he takes a
refund and brings cash on collection, you'll split the saving in
paypal fees with him.

Spot on. As the OP obviously had in the listing Paypal as a payment option
the buyer is perfectly within his rights to pay by Paypal. To offer an
incentive to pay cash is the best way - though if the buyer is as wary as
the seller then the tables may be turned!

Wasn't thinking. My own silly mistake.
Personally I'm starting to think the guy's gonna be alright, as I keep
referring to his feedback and it's exemplary.
