I got a strange message from a potential buyer who seems confused.

Here is a portion of his message:

"I'm interested in this item, but had a question in regards to the monthly down-payment. I never bought an item through eBay by downpayment before so I wanted to know: First, is there any convenience fee? Second, is it possible to pay more from month to month or is it strictly $29 monthly? Thanks!"

If eBay has a program for time payments it is news to me.

I think the service he wants is Paypal credit unless I am missing something.

I would like to point the buyer in the right direction so he might buy my book.

Thoughts?

Pretty sure he's referring to the PayPal credit program but he mistakenly thinks it's eBay.

Speaking of clueless ebayers, here was my question posed to someon about a comic presented as "prestine" but did not offer pics of the interior:

"What is the condition of the interior? Is it white or off white? Do you have a photo? Thanks."

Their response:

"I bought it new and put it in plastic 40 years ago."

When you make a purchase on eBay it will have an ad beside the price for PayPal credit payments. That's where they must have gotten confused.

I feel my "Don't buy comics on eBay" policy validated almost every time I read a thread on this forum...
