Agro Ebay sellers

Just bought a broken xbox on ebay (I use them for cheap media players) for .99c. Hit the pay now button to send the seller a message and arrange pick-up and just payed by paypal while I was at it, partly so I didn't need to make sure I had a dollar laying around when I went to pick it up, but also to avoid that kinda awkward situation where I hand over a whole dollar coin then wait for my 1c change. I've won a few items before that have gone for the .99c starting bid, I usually get a message saying not to bother with payment.

Not this time, this is the message I sent:

Quote:
Hi, I've just paid via paypal, I can pick up any evening after 6pm this week whenever is convenient for you.

Can you let me know your address and a day that suits you.
Here's the response I got:

Quote:
"WELL FOR START IN THE ITEM DESCRIPTION I SAID CASH ON PICK UP ONLY! MATE I AM SICK OF PEOPLE NOT BEING ABLE TO READ MY ITEM DESCRIPTION CASH ON PICK UP ONLY MEANS CASH ON PICK UP ONLY! THE ONLY REASON PAYPAL IS AVAILABLE IS ITS COMPULSERY!"
I've never seen anyone so worked up over the payment method of $1, I feel terrible like I've really screwed this guy over. Its almost as bad as time I was working at the supermarket deli and gave some old dude too many slices of lunch meat

its not so much just the paypal fee but its also the fee you get charged for withdrawing from your paypal account if you are under a cerain amount (i think its$ 400)

At the same time he has no right to not allow you to pay by paypal. It is COMPULSORY like he said and a part of ebay's T&C's. You prob should remind him of that!

You'd feel awkward about waiting for 1 cent change?
