I have my Mid-2013 MacBook Air up for sale on eBay, and have already had to go through resolution processes after previous auctions were won by obvious scammers (fake PayPal emails, etc.)
What I want to know is, how can I be sure that I will:
a) get paid the amount it sells for; and crucially
b) NOT be liable for any kind of automatic refund that a potential scammer might apply for through PayPal or eBay?
It might seem on first glance that when funds are in your bank account, you can ship the item out risk-free. But much googling has unfortunately told me that this is not the case; scammers will complain to PayPal that they never received the item, the item is defective, etc, and Paypal will side with the 'buyer'. Given that my Air is in perfect condition, how can I ensure that once I receive money, it will stay with me? (Can I specify bank transfer payment only, for example, and is this safe?)
