If you accept an offer or make a counteroffer, the buyer will be sent a link to check out via PayPal. The money goes directly to your PayPal account after a sale. Please only ship the item once you have confirmed receipt of payment. After the payment has been processed, the buyer’s address will automatically be sent through our messages, and you will receive an email from with the transaction details. PLEASE DO REMEMBER our website does NOT take any commission fees and will not interfere with your payment process. The buyer is directly in contact with the seller and has to response directly.

You will immediately receive money in your PayPal account after a buyer purchases your item.

How much does it cost?

When I attempt to purchase an item, I get a PayPal error. What’s going on?

There are a few reasons this might happen. One of you may have an open PayPal dispute, a misspelled PayPal email, spending limitations based on recent purchases, currency limitations based on location, an open PayPal dispute, or account access limitations based on whether your email and address credentials are verified. We recommend you contact PayPal via their customer service number for your country and ask the seller to do the same. As always, feel free to ask us for help.

I bought an item, but the seller is not responding.

If it’s been less than a week, contact the seller again and give him another day or two to respond. If the seller does not respond, we recommend filing a PayPal dispute so that you can get your money back. Let us know if you need any help with that.
