Hmmm, so a working Amstrad disappeared but then he found a broken one in it's place instead which generously he will sell for £5 less.  Probably a deal if you paid £5 in the first place, otherwise less so.

I'm having fund with an old computer I listed on ebay collection only, cash on collection that the buyer has paid with paypal.  Looks like I could get my first bit of negative feedback after 15 years on this one, as I can't accept paypal and collection.  Anyone got any advice on this?

He could only have paid with Paypal if you offered Paypal in the advert, so he is in the right and you'll just have to accept the Paypal / Collection situation this time.

Unfortunately ebay forces paypal option when listing even when collecting so a buyer can chose that option even when they shouldn't.  in hindsight i should have included an expensive postage option to discourage that and then insisted on postage.   I'm hoping to work it out with the buyer and cancel the sale and relist it for them but why they couldn't just read the advert which clearly said cash on collection. I find that quite annoying.

It's in the T&C's of Ebay that you offer Paypal. Don't like it, don't use the site. It's not the buyers fault.

There are good reasons why paypal isn't ideal for collection, but its fine I have solved it with the buyer.  Next time I'll add a delivery option but make it a tad expensive.

I didn't realise you had to offer PayPal these days. I can remember the old days of Postal Orders, Cheques and then a new fangled thing called Nochex. I think eBay and PayPal are still part of the same group of group of companies. So they get a bite at the cherry twice. There was talk of them being split apart again but i'm not sure if that has happended yet.

Still haven't got another 464 yet but the M4 is on it's way so happy days.

On paper they split, in reality, who knows?

Basically, they split in 2014. But they have an agreement which takes them for another two years up until 2020.
That's when the game will change.
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1GB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

Haaa-ha!


And yes, Paypal was obligatory (except for pick-ups, I think) for every sale/auction, though you could have more payment options if necessary. I think.

Hi Guys,


Just joined and wanted to answer the original question.  :P


I currently have 4x CPC464. Number one is original and unmolested. Number 2 is in bits. Number 3(a) was bought on eBay, repaired with bits from number 2 and resold on eBay, number 3(b) was bought on eBay, repaired with spare bits from 3(a) which would have gone back into number 2, and slightly modified so that I don't have to run another power line into the monitor to SCART lead. Number 4 is sitting, untested, and is waiting for me to build a new power pack and SCART lead, which will also serve number 1.


I only buy damaged or untested units on eBay.
