Easy to be wise after the event and all that, but presumably you knew that he wouldn't accept Paypal before you bid on the item?

What payment options were offered ?

That said ,why then ignore your emails??
I'd send no cash till he answers you,he should do that at least

Stinks a bit,in this day and age,cant be too careful
0 FB
:?
Tell him your not happy paying someone else,and if he cannot set-up his own account -then just to forget it.
Judge him by his reaction to that,if he gets all defensive ->run
