I'm kind of new to this, and I've already tried searching, but I can't seem to find the right answer. How do you buy parts from someone from a different state and ensure that they will ship it? And also, how would you sell to someone? Thanks!

PayPal, selling and buying. If the vendor doesn't take PayPal, pay by credit card so you can cancel it if called for. Don't use a debit card.

so do they send you an invoice? and then you pay them and it will be shipped?
Are you just buying from a private party? Just make sure not to send as a Gift to Family/Friends. That's the option you choose if you don't want the seller to incur a PayPal fee for the transaction. In that case, PayPal's coverage is limited (not too sure about the details) if something does go wrong.

my experience..
paypal doesn't cover **** no matter how or who you pay. pay by paypal as it's the easiest but ALWAYS use credit card(never debit) and if you have an issue dispute the charge. if you have proof of return shipment and tracking, cc companies will give you a refund. have done this twice. and remember the old addage.. a picture is worth 10,000 words.....

most recent example was with importshark. paypal didn't do crap, but chase gladfully and quickly reversed the charges and took care of me.

True. I only found out recently that most credit card companies actually provide more benefits that many people do not know about, such as extended manufacturer's warranty and price protection after purchases (Refund difference if you find a lower price after initial purchase), etc.

But as for PayPal, they've always been helpful in my experience.

I was robbed of $950 by a member here for audio equipment that he never sent. Because I paid PayPal Friends & Family, I could not charge back or dispute, my only recourse was to file a fraud case with my local Constable's Office. Never again. Had I paid Goods & Services, I could have filed a dispute and gotten my money back. I've done that before a few times, a couple of small things and one for a car I was buying on eBay that was significantly worse condition than the listing. All those times I had no issue getting my money back. Paying with a credit card is great if you're buying directly from a vendor, but so is PayPal. PayPal will charge them 3% fee, so if they ask to pay F&F, tell them you'll pay the 3% to pay G&S, it's worth the money for the ability to dispute later.

Completely agree. If a shop/vendor insists on doing a Friends & Family transfer, I would save the hassle. It may sound tempting to save a bit of money but it's definitely worth that 3% extra to have PayPal back you fully.

OK, I have a distantly related question, and I can't find a specific thread on the topic -- if buying a used GC, is there any thread detailing what issues should be checked for, particularly at different mileages? I long ago bought a 300zx w/110k miles on it, knowing I was going to have to cough up about 1k for the 120k maintenance. That was a factor in the price we settled on.

Are there common issues that ought to be checked for which a long-time owner would know about, but which might be missed? Feel free to point me to a better thread. I'm also wondering why I seem to be seeing a LOT of GCs for sale in the close vicinity of 60k miles...

Thanks
