I personally had a money order lost from an EBay transaction(the post
office really did loose it)a couple years back. So far i have much
success buying stuff from eBay. since you are a seller No payment no
merchandise, nothing is free in this world . also check the feedback
of the buyer,I always check the sellers feedback. I don't like what i
see I don't bid. I can wait until someone else puts it up on EBAy.
And also put on your terms of sale write the statement above in it.
most ebay auctions. this is how my friend words it."merchandise or
item/s will not be shipped until payment is recieved, "no
exceptions"(this little phrase help stamp out the non payers)good
