    Car part from Poland how to pay? 14th Jan 20 at 10:47 AM
    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.

    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.
