Hi all

I have quite a rare 4wd van and parts are not easy to come by. There is a small polish company on facebook (vanconcept) who services and works on my model and they have listed a front drive / axle that I need.

I have messaged them and they have given me a price of £1700 euro with delivery.

They have asked me to send a bank transfer but I want some protection really.

They have given me thier paypal email also but asked me for the 3.5 percent fees on top, which i dont mind.

Will paypal protect me if this thing doesnt turn up?

Or is there an insurence I can pay to protect a bank transfer?

They dont have card payment facilities.

Thanks Paul.

    If you send a 'full' payment via paypal for named goods then you are covered. make sure you name the exact goods you are expecting .

    Is it my browser or do they not have an address or phone number on their website?

    OK.. Seems to be several companies using the same name or a variation of that name..


    Send money by bank transfer and its like sending cash. If they dont deliver then the money is gone.
