Buyer wants to use friend's confirmed paypal acct, is that safe?

  1. I just sold a $450 item one eBay and clearly listed that payment by paypal only with confirmed address (I believe I even had the 'paypal account required' designation with the bid).

    The buyer has 33 feedback score, all positive.
    The buyer emailed me asking to pay by money order. I let her know that I don't accept money order and as the listing stated, paypal with confirmed address only. She emailed me stating that her friend has a paypal account with a confirmed address, and would I mind going that route.

    My question is whether that's a safe transaction for me. What are the positives and negatives?

    Any opinions would be appreciated.. I need to get back to her soon.

    Thanks in advance
     
  2. I don't think there is a drawback as long as you ship to the friend's confirmed address. However, wait for someone else to give their opinion.
     
  3. As long as you ship to the confirmed address it should be fine.
     
  4. safe if it's sent to the confirmed address (aka her friend's address, not her own address).
