I am trying to sell something on ebay. Asking 230. A buyer contacted me offering 200. I guess I would do it if I could avoid the paypal fees. Is it "dangerous" for me to sell it outside of ebay using paypal? Can he dispute it easily?

The easiest disputes for a buyer to win are those made through paypal. If you do a bank deposit or another method of payment, the worst the buyer can do to you is leave negative feedback or report you to ebay (which i dont think is so effective)
The very fact your making the sale off ebay makes it almost impossible to dispute it either way.

If you're selling off eBay, neither of you have any recourse if the sale goes wrong. Make sure he's paying you with a payment method that is foolproof. Personally I wouldn't give a stranger off eBay my bank account number.

Why can't the buyer file a dispute with his CC?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Assuming he pays with his CC, hence my suggestion that:

whats a legitimate reason why would a buyer want to do it off of ebay? so that you'll give it to him for cheaper since there are no fees?

Yes, especially if you (or the OP) are not selling it with a best offer option.

Other things to consider would be the feedback and account history of the person making the offer, their location, how many facebook friends they have, etc. etc.
