Hey, just got an idea that in fingerboardhq should be "middleman"s. and for those who don't know middlemans are very trusted and active members on the forum. They make your trading more safer. Lets take an example. You are buying 2 yellowoods for 40 euros from member who have 3 posts. You don't want to send money first and he doesn't want to send the things first, so then you can ask middleman to hold your money until you get the decks in the mail and then the middlemans gives the money to the seller.

Just an idea.

if someone comes on, has no posts, and doesn't want to send first, I'd not advise anyone to trade with them. One person sends first - problem solved.

interesting idea but I don't see it taking on.

These may work in real life but probably not worth your while to do through post

It'd take too much time to do so. When you could get it in a few days by sending the money by yourself.

but Kerry would have to take a commission off. So, PayPal would be easier.

Trading on forums always relies on trust. Either you have trust based on people you know in person, people you know online or noted regular traders. For people you don't trust, you can request that they use eBay to sell things and use Paypal to buy things. If you are selling things, you can offer to use these methods too. You can also build trust by starting with small trades or buy from trusted traders on here so that they can give positive feedback about the trade.

common sense not to buy off people with 2 posts or any rep on the forum, only trade with people that seem legit and never trade on youtube it's scam central...

Sounds like a good idea, but it's just kind of a waste of money to ship to one guy to ship to another guy... Just trade people we know are legit and we'll be fine.
