I've been looking to rent a timeshare from Ebay. I've found a great deal at the Grande Vista. I had to contact the seller to ask questions about availability and I got her down in price a little. So here's my problem..... She didn't say that the transaction had to take place privately, outside of Ebay but I asked about how we proceeded from this point. I said that it had to go through Ebay, so what should I do? Her reply was that that would be fine but the price would go up $80 to cover the 10% Ebay fee and the 3% paypal fee. She went into further detail about how I would make an offer on her listing. Now I'm fine with that for the security but I'm wondering how all the Dis'er that have done this before feel about going outside of Ebay to complete the transaction....$80 is $80. Am I safe enough just using Paypal? Also, I'm renting 2 weeks and she said that I could have the first week's ressie in my name, and have a copy, prior to paying but that the second week had not been booked yet so that would have to be paid up front. Feelings on this situation????
