Ebay- Is it true you need a certain amount of feedback before you can post buy it now

  1. On eBay, is it true you need a certain amount of feedback to post a buy it now auction? I want to purchase a bay from someone off a forum and asked her to post it on eBay because it seems more official and I know I am protected by paypal if I do not recieve the item but she said she does not have enough feedback to post as buy it now. I've always used my bfs eBay account and he has a lot of feedback so I don't k now if that is true.
     
  2. You need at least 10 feedback to do a buy it now with an auction listing.;)
     
  3. Am I protected by paypal if I purchase it from her idenpendently without a ebay auction and pay for it via paypal? Thanks much!
