    Default buying from an Amazon vendor ... off Amazon ...

    I sent a message to a vendor. He asks me to email him directly as he has multie items pertaining to what I asked about. The terms to acquire this rather large lot of stuff was discussed through personal emails. Should I be worried?

    If you do a deal outside of a marketplace, there's no protection from the marketplace. I usually pay with credit card (through PayPal) in case something goes wrong. It's not unusual for Amazon/eBay/whatever sellers to want to do a transaction outside whatever marketplace to save on fees and make a little more money, but as the buyer you have to weigh the possibility of getting ripped off.

    Don't expect Amazon to be there for you; not unlike Ebay.
    Surely not everyone was Kung-fu fighting
