shipping?

Postby jo83ben » Mon Dec 10, 2012 10:37 pm

Hey everyone! How do you ship items/pay for them when you sell on here? I have some gear I'm looking to sell, but I don't know how you arrange payment and shipping (so that both parties feel secure in their transaction)??

I've always used Paypal and had it marked as a "gift". I've always shipped promptly with USPS and have never had an issue (knock on wood!). There is always a certain amount of trust that goes on in these transactions.

Getting ripped off is rare. Sell with confidence.

I used to insist on "gift" payment (feeless- some "gift" payments still aren't feeless) also, but discovered that Paypal will not support gift exchanges, but WILL totally go to bat for you if you have a problem with someone via fee transaction... so now I look at the 3.5% fee as insurance, and pay it.
where am i going... and why am i in this handbasket?
