Wore out three sets of tires already!
Why on earth would the CABE have to impose such a rule?? 1. Many people here know on another or are familiar with one and other. 2.As a buyer you are not required to accept F & F.Goods and services ONLY. If the seller is legitimate, he won't care. If sellers are good businessmen, they will factor the 4% into the cost of goods sold.
I wish The CABE would help adopt a Strongly Recommended Policy that all PayPal sales here on The CABE need to be Goods and Services. It would save a lot of anxiety.
When a seller insists on F & F, he is basically saying that he is not willing to guarantee that you will receive your purchase.
In todays world I would much rather receive a personal check and ship when it clears(right away if I know them). This has worked well for 20 years.
