I have never used them but have heard good and bad things about how they handle things. If you pay use a cc that way if things go bad you can do a charge back

Ebay rules specify a seller *must* offer paypal as one form of payment last time I checked. Has this changed?

If I am not mistaken from what I have heard paymate is being offers as an alternate to PayPal in some countries

Personally, of the few sellers I've noticed offering Paymate, they have been selling counterfeit handbags. I am not saying that is the case but personally I would request if you can pay with Paypal.

Are you 100% sure that the bag you are purchasing is authentic? If not post it on the authenticate this thread for one of the ladies to look at.

I would be very cautious, it is a lot of money to loose.

No, paypal isn't required. Seller MUST accept at least one of several approved payment methods.

Correct - and Paymate is one of those accepted methods.
