Hi, I'm having a bit of trouble with ebay. An Italian that is not at all fluent in English doesn't seem to be able/willing to provide me with the necessary payment details (who do I pay and where do I pay to, an adress?)

Could someone from Italy please tell me how the money order system works round there, since this seller on ebay keeps insisting that he/she does not have a bank account and that his/her money is "in the post office"

I've no idea how the money order system works, but I'd gladly attempt to translate the Italian... :P

Actually I don't need any help anymore, I got past the language barrier with Google Translate (Heaven sent!) and used a local Moneygram service to send money to the recipient with their name, withdrawable from PosteItalia.

I just hope the Italian will send the dr.. goods I ordered swiftly.

I'm amazed you were able to get past that using an online translator.

Those online translator services are usually shite (especially with Japanese), but I wasn't aware Google had their own......guess it was only a matter of time before they caught up.

Oh why, yes. I've ordered a special "mist" filter for the lens to make myself look "extra dreamy" if you know what I mean...

Some Roman guy, can I purchase Italian hitmen to teach him a lesson if I'm less than satisfied with my dealings? I just hope THEY take some other payment method than a money order.

AFAIK eBay is removing the privileges of sellers being able to leave negative feedback (not doing the same for bidders though), so you should be fine :P

Well, I am talking only for myself, but I accept other payment methods.
I like cash.
Or you can buy me a pizza.
