Buying and selling online

Buying and selling online can lead to bargains and big money but it can also lead to disappointment and financial loss. How should young people negotiate the world of online sales online payments? We meet Louis, a business-minded 14-year-old, who spends his spare time going to car boot sales to find bargains to sell on an online auction site, with the help of his mother. We find out what to look out for when buying and selling online, then go behind the scenes with PayPal to see just how safe our money is when paying for items online. Eighteen-year-old Harriet describes how her purchase of a laptop via an online auction site went badly wrong.
