I sold a camera, and Canadian buyer asked if I could ship it to Guatemala, where he is on a long vacation. I declined, and told him that I can ship only to a confirmed address. His account is couple of years old, but feedback is low, and Canadian address was unconfirmed. It took him more than a week to get it confirmed, and today he sent me a payment by eCheck. I understand that once eCheck clears, the payment is legitimate and will not bounce. Is it so? This transaction is marked as inelidgeble for Seller Protection- any idea why? I could find a good explanation on PayPal site. I worry about being scammed, but can't really put a finger on anything.
This sounds really scammy - have you tried forwarding the payment emails to firstname.lastname@example.org to see if they're legitimate?
I would not be shipping this anywher until I made sure that I had SPP on it.
BTW, if the item + shipping is over $250, you'll need SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION, not just delivery confirmation, and that means you have to send it by courier if you're in the US - USPS doesn't provide an online viewable signature confirmation, as required by Paypal.
