Here are some guidelines to keep in mind when you buy or sell shipped items on Marketplace.
Tips for Sellers
  • Make sure that your item follows our Commerce Policies before listing anything for sale.
  • Never ship an item before you receive full payment.
  • Clearly communicate the shipping timeline, carrier (example: FedEx), delivery status and tracking information to your buyer.
  • Consider using a payment option that provides purchase protection, and check their terms of use to see if your transaction is covered.
Tips for Buyers
  • Get to know the person you're buying from by visiting their Marketplace profile.
  • To make sure you fully understand the condition of the item you're buying, message the seller to ask for more images and information if needed.
  • Research the cost of the item for sale. If it seems the seller is offering the item for too little money, there's most likely a good reason.
  • Message the seller about your payment preferences and suggest a payment provider that offers purchase protection. Check their terms of use to see if your transaction is covered.
