That would allow the buyer to confirm receipt & that goods tied with the description & for the seller to confirm no issues his side.
The thread would then be closed & left as a record for other buyers/sellers down the road.
I've had mixed experiences with buying items on ww. A couple of items I've received had problems that the seller(s) would have known about but seemingly didn't get disclosed to keep the asking price high. In both instances the seller had a 100+ posts & then has since gone silent so it appears as though they knew what they were up to.
Definitely ask for a lot of pics on higher value items b/c its the best way to be certain about what your getting before handing over the £/$.
Also always go for insured postage to avoid any worries once the item has gone (speaking as a seller) just in case it never turns up.

That's a great idea.
I have bought 1 or 2 things from JMT years ago with great success and still in use today!

Always bought from very well established members though.

Yes that is the impression I get too. Why waste other peoples' time?
you know, then they want you to deposite $$ into their account so they they can then deposite thier payment into your acct. etc....etc....
I recently had someone interested in an item I was selling here on WW and before he/she offered his own address or ask for my Paypal address (so he could pay) he started asking "for my address and phone# for his pick-up service"......... (of which they don't really have here in the U.S., at least that I am aware of)
Seemed like a scam, and when I asked (politly, but directly) he/she said they were not interested, anymore, because it seemed like I didn't trust him....
The buyer only had about 20 posts on WW. Seemed like another craigslist.com scam. (I could be wrong, but if I was, he/she could have willing to continue the pushase, but they "jumped-ship" pretty quickley.
Just my recent experince.
The process should be pretty simple, if it's not, I don't proceed.
That's what I'm talking about...

...unfortunately not in English, but as I see it's not the first time he's cheating..or how could we call that..does anyone know if he has some problems?? Bad health, just acting stupid,..?? Please let me know
I simply screwed up, i double sold them, someone bought them through paypal and I transfered the cash to my bank, then someone turned up at the house from a sale on another forum and my partner sold them to them. when i tried to return the funds it wouldnt work as my bank wasnt authorised on paypal and am having trouble sorting it with them..I felt bad for the guy and dont like messing people about like that.
I have sold loads of stuff through these forums with no troubles and I wont make that mistake again and appologies to all involved and time wasted on my screw up.
whilst what has happened is not in the spirit of WW's, at least he was good enough to give an honest recount of what happened from his end.
