If your getting most of your stuff from canada computers, you should just go in person to haggle a deal out of them.

It's not about the payment method, it's the reliability.
What if there are problems with the stuff you get from ebay?

yeah, i get VERY little computer stuff of of ebay, cause it's a huge risk of wether or not it works, plus you can't get your money back if it doesn't

If you order all of that off eBay and don't get at least one defective product or ripped off in some way, consider yourself very lucky.
