usually who ever has lowest feedback or person wanting to trade ships first or you can ship same time. Once item is recieved other person ships their item out. If shipped same time usually ship same way to get the items around the same time.

paypal is not involved in anyway with trades, you trade at your own risk thats why you check out the person you are trading with. and if you pay as a gift with paypal then you can't file a dispute because you didnt get the item. always pay reg on paypal that way you can file a dispute.

There is no guarantee on a trade like if you pay thru pay pal. My rule is not to trade with anyone with a very low rating unless the ship it to me first then I will ship to them. The person with the lowest rating should ship first, unless you both have high ratings. I like to talk to them on the phone as well. Just my 2 cents worth. See Ya ! Mike S.

Outback Racer is right about the gift threw Pay Pal as well. No coverage if you pay as a gift. Pay the extra 3% and get coverage.

this is how i do trades.i havent had a person turn it down.
the buyer and seller both send each other payment for there goods for the same amount of money.
the only thing you lose is the paypal fees.

its a small amount of money to let go of, to insure both get what they were intended.

That works if you have some money laying around to play with. I like to trade because I don't have any extra money myself.

This is a good method.

I prefer to treat a trade as 2 seperate transactions; a purchase, and a sale.

We both agree on a fair market value for our items, I send the payment to him as a payment for his item, he sends the same amount to me as payment for my item.

This allows us to cross-ship with confirmation. If one of us is unhappy with the transaction, a PayPal claim can be filed if we can't come to a resolution.

The only hangup appears when people don't have money to blow on a big purchase. The fix for that is to send your payment first, and they can send it right back (plus a small amount to cover what wasn't received in fees for the first transaction).

It's a system that isn't based in trust, is backed by the security of PayPal (or your credit card company), and overall is just a helluvalot less stressful.
