I haven't been scammed but I am trying to sell on ebay as well since from what I've seen the exchanges have so many bs limits that it makes it difficulty for small timers (less than 0.5 btc) to not be raked over coals. I just sold a partial BTC and when I received the payment I realized PayPal was going to hold me to shipping the product so I re-funded PP and re-listed as local pickup...I'm just not sure how well this will work either. Any input from those with experience?

 For local pickup it seems like buyer would have an option to check "received goods locally, as is well" to free seller from physical obligations assuming buyer is interested in actually doing business knowing the polices aren't designed for crypto.

 That said, I'm willing to sell BTC, LTC or whatever else buyer wants mined under market price(slightly) for the convenience of using PayPal and having the funds available to purchase more equipment immediately so if anyone's interested we can start very small and work our way up (no more then .25 since my operation is small) to feel each other out.

I've never done local pickup for goods, or anything for that matter, with Ebay.

Do they still pay via Paypal? How do you verify exchange of goods?

I haven't tried selling any Bitcoins on Ebay, as i can't see anyway to protect myself from fraud.. there isn't any real way to prove you have held up your end.
