I want to buy something on sale on Craigslist in another city...too far away for me to do a face-to-face transaction. The seller is a private party. Is there a way (assuming he's willing) to keep transaction protections in place....such as seller not shipping the product
I have never used paypal in any sort of similar way - just with known stores, ebay and the like.
thanks in advance for any help you can lend
You need to read up on paypals buyer protection policy so you can risk assess your transactions.
