The woman on Thursday gave evidence that she agreed to purchase a vehicle from Mr Martin for about $1800.
She told the magistrate she paid about $800 in cash upfront and then gave Mr Martin iPads and speakers as a form of payment.

The woman said there was some money outstanding when she obtained the vehicle.
She told the court about 6.30pm on June 23, she was sitting in the living room of the Strathfieldsaye property with her partner when she heard loud banging and yelling.
The woman said Mr Martin forced his way into the house and pointed a firearm at her. She said at some point Mr Martin said to her, "you owe me money, where's my f****** money".
The woman told the court she was in shock during the alleged incident and "it all happened so quickly".
The woman's partner also gave evidence to the court on Thursday.
He told the magistrate he heard Ms Parker say "shoot her in the foot" and "give him the money" during the alleged incident.
The man also told the court he heard what sounded like a gunshot before Mr Martin and Ms Parker allegedly forced their way inside the property.
The committal hearing will continue on Friday, with the magistrate expected to decide whether the two co-accused should stand trial.
Mr Martin was remanded in custody, while Ms Parker's bail was extended.
