Paypal vs Credit card for eBay purchase parts

I'm about to buy some car bits of ebay, 1 seller 200 total.

I have incomming paypals on the way which will cover it.

From a buyer protection viewpoint am I better buying before the funds hit my account and top up with the credit card, or, wait for the funds?

Is there any added credit card protection if anything goes wrong?


Cheers.
Pete.

You are better protected if the payment comes off your card - any probs you can ask them to charge back. You would also have Paypal protection as well.





Furore Formula Car - the only two seater modern Formula Car lookalike. I no longer run Furore Products or Furore Cars Ltd, but would still highly recommend them for Acewell dashes, projector headlights, dominator headlights, indicators, mirrors etc, best prices in the UK! Take a look at http://www.furoreproducts.co.uk/ or find more parts on Ebay, user names furoreltd & furoreproducts, discounts available for LCB users.
Don't forget Stainless Steel Braided brake hoses, made to your exact requirements in any of around 16 colours. http://shop.ebay.co.uk/furoreproducts/m.html?_dmd=1&_ipg=50&_sop=12&_rdc=1

Debateable. There is not case law on whether credit cards need to cover the whole basket when the total amount is over 100 or just items over 100.

If no single item is over 100 I personally would use paypal, but not use paypal credit. Instead do a card payment through paypal. A Visa Debit would mean you can charge back the transaction is paypal get arsey.





This is personal advise or personal opinion.
Constructive comments gratefully recieved, picking is left for noses.
