Seller want me to trade by paypal


#1

Hello, today i saw a guy on gameflip selling Fortnite Counterattack Set and Monster Hunter World, so i want to buy a bulking, then i added his facebook and ask him about price but he told me that he wanted to trade on paypal, is this acceptable? and if i got scammed, gameflip will still protect me? Below are his gameflip account and facebook. Thanks

tbh i wouldn’t try dealing through paypal unless its through gameflip, maybe u can ask him to allocate a time where he reduces the price of the listing so u can buy it at that price.

i think he try to trade without Gameflip ,It violated the terms !

If you go through any other site you lose your Gameflip guarantee so I wouldn’t.

Please do not complete transactions outside of Gameflip, since we won’t be able to give you the buyer’s guarantee then.
You can ask the seller to make a listing for you on Gameflip and then buy in bulk.

I have also warned this seller, since this is forbidden.
You can read more about our guarantee here https://gameflip.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/205357318-What-is-the-Gameflip-Guarantee-

You want to buy an iphone.
before entering the apple store, there’s a man around the corner saying … Psss i have a better deal come here and you buy the phone.
later you find out the phone isn’t what it is as advertised and you got a non functioning model of it.
You go back to the apple sotre and ask for a refund / exchange.

what do you think the scenario is going to play out?
