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

Robert,

What's DSP?  I have wondered about their headsets with microphones for
the computer.  Is this what you're talking about?  If so, what was the
model number?

Hi Justin,

Very sound advice.

I made my first purchase on ebay a couple of weeks ago, a Plantronics
DSP=20
Headset. The cheapest price I had seen listed before going to ebay was
=A339=20
plus postage. I paid the asking price of =A332 at ebay and the dealer =
sent
it=20
free of charge by second class mail. I'm very pleased with the purchase.

Best.

Robert.

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
