Top Questions

Narrowing your search

Once you arrive at a page with a list of products, you may find that there are too many for you to compare.

To help you out, MrBuyGuy.com allows you to narrow your search.

If you haven't already filtered your product by category, you can do this now, by clicking on one of the categories on the left hand side of the page.

You can also filter by price, by using the slider.

For some products, you may be able to filter your search by a particular specification, such as brand, size, weight, material or energy rating.

By clicking on the Classified tab toward the top of the page, you can find out if you can purchase the product you want directly from another MrBuyGuy.com user.

I've paid for my item but it isn't appearing as paid. What happened?

If you're paying via PayPal, your payment status should update automatically.

However, if you're paying by another method, for example, by cheque or by bank transfer, there will not be an automatic update of your payment status. You can ask your bank to provide proof of payment.

You can manually mark an item as paid for your records and to show the seller that you've paid:

Click Won Auctions under My Account at the top of the page..

Select the item you've won.

Click on the down arrow next to the Pay Now button.

Select Mark Payment as Sent.

As long as the seller agrees that that the item was paid for, everything is fine.

Refer to MrBuyGuy Buyer Protection to find out what to do if you and the seller can't come to an agreement.
