I have been exchanging e-mails with someone who wants to buy a bass from me. During these e-mails I wrote that I wanted the funds in a money order or check. No problem so far. Then I mention the shipping rate with one carrier. Then he wanted me to go with another because of problems in how products arrive (I had not had problems with them). Ok no big deal, I had the other carrier nearby, as long as they pay shipping. Now I'm getting an e-mail in which he wants us to conduct this transaction through paypal (I don't have an account). I think this person is very nice, we have had good discussions but when it came down to the transaction, I feel that he's making me jump through hoops to make him comfortable (didn't want to wait for check to clear before getting bass--understandable). Granted, he's being very diplomatic about it. I just said I'd think about it. I think I'm being reasonable.
