    I'm selling a brand new InFocus LP350 projector for $3465 + shipping. The box on this unit is factory-sealed and I just received it yesterday. This unit comes with a 2 year warranty.
    I bought this projector from Dell last week when they were running a special online promotion that has since expired. I am going to buy an RPTV instead. I decided to try to sell it before returning it since someone might want to take advantage of this special pricing (compare prices at Egghead.com, Outpost.com, or Buy.com for ~$4,199).
    Best of all, I will also include with the projector Dell's original (not a copy) invoice. What this does is allow you to take advantage of InFocus' $200 mail-in rebate that expired yesterday thereby lowering the projector's cost to $3265 + shipping. If you bought this projector today from Buy.com for $4,199, you would not qualify for this rebate!
    I have a good eBay feedback rating and will accept payment via money order, check, or money wire (sorry, no PayPal ... their fees are simply too high).
    Please send any questions to dps10@cox.rr.com.nospam (remove the .nospam). Thanks!

    Hi Don,
    The PayPal 4% fee cannot be charged for. We have a section on this in the posting guidelines for this area:

    Thanks Don. That was something put in place by PayPal, not us, so all we can do is comply with their regulations.

    No problem. What a lousy business practice though. They raise their rates by 3% in the last year or so and then won't let you adjust costs accordingly! Sheesh.

    Don: I agree with you, that for us non businesses who want to accept credit cards, PayPal has us by the throats. One way around this policy is to figure in the PayPal surcharge and add it to your price. Publish that price as your selling price and then offer a discount(down to your "real" price) for cash, money order and check paymments. It truly is sad that PayPal forces us to play these games, but they give us no other choice.
    Good Luck with your sale! The infocus sure looks like a beauty!

    Maybe I'll checkout Yahoo's service. I think it's free. Or maybe Citibank's... I think they are partnered with First Data.
    John: Thanks for the suggestions. At this point, I would rather PayPal not get my business. I'll stick to checks, money orders, or COD.
