Ebay PayPal auto payment .. Be wary.
I recently bought a set of Brake Pads off Ebay for £19.50p Buy it Now. Clicked on the Pay Now prompt and was horrified to see they had auto-included an additional £76 for some wheels I had paid cash on collection for and collected a week or so previously.
The additional "Basket" item I had already paid cash for appeared unseen below my screen and only appeared after I had activated Pay Now.
This auto-inclusion process is annoying and will happen if any item you had paid cash for has not been shown by the seller as paid.
Time and again I get auto-reminders for stuff I had paid cash on collection for.
It's all sorted now but, be wary of this basket case auto-inclusion for stuff you've already paid cash for.
Thus, when collecting stuff and paying Cash on collection remind the seller politely to mark as paid on a timely basis to avoid this sort of thing. I did that on this occasion but, the seller had problems with his device and so could not mark as paid. Otherwise you could in theory pay twice without realising.
