Paypal is the best way to make a purchase because at least you have some protection from them.  I’ve bought and sold on the Classifieds here in the past and all my transactions went wonderfully! 🙂

I bought mason jars off of one person and chair sashes from another. Both worked well. The person with the mason jars wanted me to send a check and I said no, only pay pal- I was scared of getting scammed but everything turned out well!

I have bought quite a few things from bees and have been very happy.  Paypal is the best way to go. 

Make sure to ask for a confirmation/tracking number with shipping.  That will be an added protection for you and seller.  If the bracelet is more than $100, I would request UPS/Fed Ex or USPS Priority Mail for shipping carrier even if it’s a little more expensive.  I’ve never had a problem with an item not arriving through USPS, but sometimes the packaging is banged up if the item went through standard mail.

I just bought my wedding dress off of the classified section.

I had the seller set up an auction on eBay with my username instead of a title (so nobody else will find it and bid on it).

Make sure they put all of the details of the item on the listing, and have a return policy that allows you to return the item if it is “significantly different than described.”

This way I have both eBay and PayPal to fall back on if something bad happens. My dress should be here within a week! I’ll make a post saying how it all went once I get the dress.

I have bought a few things on the classifieds, and never had any problem at all.
