So I have been selling online for almost 20 years now, been a member of eBay since 2001. Almost 100% of my dealings is with email, facebook, or forum groups. I never have phone conversations with any of my buyers, as I am quick to reply to a email. This has always worked great for me, no issues. They send the paypal payment and I ship the parts. If there is an issue or question we handle it via email. So I have something for sale on another site and the last two inquires from members, they started the PM with "call me" and left his number. And the one last night simply asked for my phone number so he could call me. This was kind of weird two people back to back wanted to have a phone conversation over a part and wonder if this is becoming the trend now? This isn't top secret stuff I am selling, and I thoroughly described it and took plenty of pics. I don't really like giving my number out, I get enough spam. I also don't like adding random phone calls coming in when I am busy or can't take the call at the time. It's one reason why I like email, you can answer at your convenience and there is a paper trail. Just wondering how other prefer to deal with online transactions? Maybe I am thinking too much into this? Maybe if I was selling a $12,000 car or something with higher risk or stake I would understand having a phone conversation. But if it's just $100 or less I can't see having to speak to anyone.
