Okay this isn't advertizing anything I"m selling...but if I do sell something on here, or another on-line site would I have them send me my money first? or what?
I have one thing I want to sell, but I don'thave paypal...and I don't think my dad would want to sign up for it.

What do you do about payments? Do you trust whomever buys it or do you wait till you recieve the payment before sending it?

You always, always wait until you receive payment. Paypal functions so that both parties are protected though.

that 's what I thought but just wanted to check

Paypal is free to sign up for, right? How exactly does it protect both sides? I really know nothing about paypal other than it's a payment system that most people on-line (that buys or sells stuff) has

what about them sending the money through the mail...not a check...but cash?
I don't know...maybe it would be less hassle and try to sell the fly mask to someone close to me....maybe the barn owner would take the flymask plus my western saddle and trade it for a saddle that I like of hers (not sure which one though haha)...I dunno though...
my luck is horrible this week

i know for the mail, the sender can get insurance and delivery conformation on it. That way you know where the money is.

But like Tim said, always get the money BEFORE you send the product
