[access-uk] Re: Any thoughts on Ebay?/how to purchase

Hi Carol,

well, if you see something you like then if it's an auction item you can 
place whatever bid you're prepared to offer.  if it is a "buy only" offer 
and, there are plenty of them about.  You have a look at that item, make 
sure you're satisfied with the feedback, feedback rating and the postage 
cost.  Postage isn't always extortionate.  all depends on who you're dealing 
with and many will tell you the postal rates before bidding/buying anyway.

you need to click the buy now button.  you'll go to the log in page.  enter 
username and password.  then you go to the next page that tells you what you 
have brought, it'll list all the costs that you know of with the item. 
it'll give you a choice (if there is one) of accepted forms of payment.

choose paypal by selecting the radio button, if not already selected.  then, 
oh, I forget the name of the buttom now.  it's something like Pay or 
continue even lol.  after entering, next page will be the paypal website. 
Yep, you've gone onto another website and, the best part is that the item 
and costs are put in already with some blurb on, you're about to make a 
purchase.  you log in to your paypal account.  next page is more of a 
confirmation page, you can choose what credit card to use, or either credit 
or debit card.  this choice depends on whether you've registered more than 
one card on your paypal account.  you can write a message to the buyer too, 
at the bottom of the page where there is a text box.  when you've done all 
that, click "pay" and you've got a webpage with a thank you recept.

I'd say to anyone and even I, experienced in this is, to take your time over 
it.  don't rush any stage of the buying process.  Make sure you're satisfied 
with all the information on each page and that everything is going according 
to how it should do.

hope this is of some help.

Justin
