I've sold individual games for years on Amazon and eBay, but am getting ready to put a portion of my collection for sale on eBay.  

 

I always list condition conservatively to avoid buyers being unhappy with condition and I would buy insurance if it sells.  However, my concern is shipping hundreds of games and then have the buyer file a bogus claim while I don't have the games and possibly not having access to the funds.  

 

Is there anything additionally I can do to protect myself as a seller from getting a bad buyer on a large lot?

I believe there is an escrow service that is used in conjunction with eBay. I think it is used a lot for eBay motors. Never used it but I remember it being talked about when the 25th ps4s came out. Look into that.

Thanks for the tip, hadn't seen an escrow used on eBay before.  Appreciate it.
