97.9% feedback rating is too risky I think. I don't deal with anything less than 99%.

Not strictly true. You do have to have a PayPal account but in 99% of sales you also have the choice of direct bank deposit. The only difference being that PayPal has a fraud policy and you don’t :wink: :wink: :wink:

And, on the 99% if you have a company that has made 150,000 sales then a 99% feedback is far worse than someone with a 96% on 400 sales.

This just proves that figures can be so misleading if you read then literally :wink:

You will also note that the seller has not had any negative for 12 months and a figure of 68 positives since the negatives which on analysis makes me believe he/she was a bad, bad person and then learnt the wisdom of their ways :roll: :wink: :roll: :wink:

You cannot create a PayPal account without accepting their Terms and Conditions. But since I do not accept Paypals terms and conditions, I cannot have a paypal account. So I cannot buy this with direct deposit. Nor for that matter, COD which might otherwise be an option. However much I might want to.

I agree in principle Greg but I have to accept the terms and conditions of our esteemed government and their draconian ways but I still manage a smile and live reasonably well :up:

However, you can pay through PayPal without having a PayPal account. I do that sometimes.
