Safe Tips for Buying:

Before buying from anyone for the first time be sure to check the sellers feedback (this site, other sites, Ebay,..etc.) and get some opinions from others on the site. I encourage every buyer to promote that insured shipping ($100 or more not $50) be included in the price. If it is negotiated this way then please include it in the agreement. If paying buy paypal always keep your paypal receipt where you can refer back to it if there are issues. I have a folder titled Ebay and Paypal that I put these in and once the deal in completed then I go and delete the e-mails. Also, in the special instructions box in the payment transaction always include your address a second or third time to be sure the seller has your address. If you are paying by money order keep your receipt for the money order. You can refer to the seller of the money order and find out the date, time, and place the money order was cashed. I encourage these acts in your purchasing experiences here on The Cardboard Village.

Safe Tips for Selling:

When selling one should include $100 worth of insured shipping in the price. $100 insured shipping makes the buyer sign for the package and you can take your receipt to the post office and assure the package is in their ( the buyer) hands. As a seller the goods are your responsibility until they reach the buyers hands.. this is plain ol'contract law. If you are paid by paypal then you should keep a receipt of the payment reception notice and save it in the same folder (refer to the above paragraph on buying) and not delete it until you have confirmation the buyer has received their goods. Sometimes you receive payments from unconfirmed buyers and this is your sole discretion to ask them to send payment by money order or you can keep the paypal. If you are paid by money order keep the insurance receipt until you have confirmation that the buyer has received their goods. Check a buyers feedbacks (this site, other sites, Ebay, etc.) before selling to them. When mailing a package ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS mail in a padded bubble envelope. These practices will help you be a great seller.

These are some of the methods that I practice myself when buying and selling on the net. If you have any questions then you are welcome to contact any of our staff via PM here on The Cardboard Village. Thank you for the long read and the best of luck in your experiences on The Carboard Village.
