I am selling my MacBook Pro. I got a suitable offer from someone who wants to pay through PayPal from overseas and his son will collect the laptop after payment confirmation. I have never used PayPal.
Can some one pls tell me if it is safe and good option. Will there be any transaction charges or currency conversion charges?
first, if you make india’s paypal, you will need to give your PAN card to receive payment. indian paypal to indian paypal, we cannot transfer money of any kind. so he need to have non indian paypal.
second, while transferring the payment; there are two methods. one is sending for some item or digital goods etc and second is friend to friend or to family etc. in case if he transfers it as money for some merchandise, teri chu*ne ke bahut chance hai. these funds are released only after 21 days for regular users. if you link for ebay top rated seller account with paypal, then only you can redeem them immediately. he’ll raise claim immediately and there will be no proof from your side of any sort and tera maal gaya free me
third thing, paypal fees is like tooooo much. first, they’ll charge their 5% fee, then they’ll charge another 5% or so for currency conversion. you’ll loose a lot in this.
so, avoid it!
