Ebay Selling Advice?


I recently put my old mercedes on ebay for sale. I set a buy it now for $7000 along with a reserve of $6000. The bidding is at $3200 with 8 buyers and 8 days left.

I've had a potential buyer contact me wanting to pay $6200 immediately for the car. He seems legit and the price is decent. He is very eager to close the deal right away, but strangely enough does not want to bid. However, he is willing to either wire the money or give me a cashier's check and will wait till the funds clear to collect the car.

I am uncomfortable completing the transaction as I just feel rushed given that I just put up the ad and

Any advice?

Thank you.

You are not protected at all if you try to sell the car privately. Don't think you're done once the bidding is over. I tried selling my car a few months ago and once it was over the winning bidder's account was canceled and I didn't get shit.
