Got a day and a bit left to run on these old Amiga posters on Ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320804066696?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_500wt_1202

In the interests of research, I thought I'd offer to accept Bitcoins. Are there any current "best practice" guidelines about doing so though?

Obviously without some third party, the seller has to trust me to deliver the goods once they pay, but curious to know if there are ways to increase trust, etc. And how does raising a claim on ebay work if using Bitcoins/anything other than Paypal?

Cheers for any info/ideas/links...

Send the buyer a unique BTC address, then send the item. The Ebay rating system takes care of merchant trust issues.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Thanks cbeast. Didn't sell for BTC in the end, but feels good to make the offer. Searching descriptions for "accept bitcoins" seems useful for other items too, even if there's not a huge amount of items that get returned, in the UK at least.

I hate ebay, but it's got the audience. Seems to make sense to post there and accept BTC, rather than on a BTC-specific site and not get any sales...  Undecided
