SAFETY CATCH­ING

Stuff Middle East - - Beta Yourself -

Spot the spivs Be­fore you buy any­thing on eBay, en­sure the seller’s on the level. Use the app’s fil­ters to limit the feed­back you see to sell­ing and re­cent trans­ac­tions – and be mind­ful that the odd neg­a­tive isn’t nec­es­sar­ily a red line.

Keep it civil An item hasn’t ar­rived, or was dam­aged? Con­tact the seller us­ing eBay’s mes­sage sys­tem rather than un­leash­ing a tiny feed­back rant. Sim­i­larly, if you’re late to send some­thing, fore­warn the buyer, apol­o­gise and – if pos­si­ble – up­grade to a quicker ship­ping ser­vice.
