I have never sold on ebay but I certainly have bought some high end items including a Leica M6, some great lenses, a Rolex for my wife, and a HD28 for myself. I quit after the paypal mandate. A couple of weeks ago I saw a beautiful OM28 Marquis that I had to have. I approached the seller about accepting a cashiers check. He agreed and we both are living happily ever after. I'm sure others won't go for it but I absolutely refuse to use paypal.
