I obviuosly want payment up front before I ship the frame, but the buyer wants to be protected against the fact that I could take his money and then fail to send the frame (which I wouldn't do!).
What do you guys normaly do when you sell/buy things overseas from private buyers/sellers?
If both of you are unwilling to trust the other, perhaps he can paypal half the total then the other half when he gets the frame.
My thought, if after some communication you don't feel like you can trust the other party, you probably shouldn't do business with them.

However I sold a frame last month without anything. the buyer paid for it(bank transfer) then I sent it. Doesnt always happen, but it can.

Luckily, I've had no problems dealing with people on this board and haven't really heard of anyone getting really burned either. Good luck.

sometimes you can wire transfer money from a credit card,wich might make it insured ?
I have bought tyres, a frame, wheels, and sold a fair few items through this board with no problems. All of these people I now count as friends too.
