Question selling parts to members???

I got a question
a new member (just signed up) wants to buy my carb, I don't know about Pay Pal. Thats how he wants to pay. What would be the best way to secure the funds before I ship the carb ? There are so many scams out there with checks, postal money orders and such.

I have dealt with long time members and shipped stuff and they paid me later.

what should I do ?

Make a paypal if you plan on continuing to sell online, it's the only form a payment I'll accept besides cash in hand. It's completely secure and not directly linked to your bank account unless you choose to do so.

Yes, the person sends money to you from the "send money" tab. If you send it as a gift there's no fee, if they send it under "goods" or "Services" you get a small fee, I have no idea how much it may be.
The money from the buyer will be in paypal limbo until you choose to send it to an account of your own.

Thanks, I'll have to get my son to do this for me. He's the smart one with this techno stuff

OK, my son suggested that I pass on selling to a newly signed up member. Using PayPal the buyer could use multiple reason as to why he should not pay, PayPal is always on the buyers side.
To the regular members I have no problem with sending them something for their inspection and they pay me later with a check or money order; I have done this several times in the past, never a problem.

I have decided to list my selling price as local Atlanta area sales cash only.

There are so many scams out there with checks, postal money orders and such.

He did tell me I could take a picture of the sale item state sale "as is" and send it registered mail signature required.

F all that, I'll take cash.
If it don't sell, oh well

If the new member came over from one of the other forums, you could check on reliability.

If I were this buyer, I'd understand your reluctance and possibly be willing to mail you a check and allow you to wait till it clears before you ship it. However, it works both ways, what incentive does he have to trust you?
