I've traded a few times, always with established FM-ers with good feedback. I've received offers from FM-ers without much feedback and while they may be good, I don't have a good way of knowing, so I usually politely decline. The latest one I traded was .. I traded my iPad 2 for a Nikon 85mm f/1.8 plus cash to me. The deal worked out fine. Since he had 60+ rating here and I had 72 rating at the time, we cross-shipped. Sometimes, some trades happen in a way where the FM-er with good feedback asks the one with lower feedback to ship first, and then, upon receiving the item and inspecting it, ships the item he's trading.

+1 Anil's reply mirrors my own experience here. GL, gotta love a good trade
Oh, BTW...if there's money due one way or the other, a check in the package keeps PayPal's mitts off your money.

I had a wonderful trade with an established FM'er for my 70-200mm f/2.8 I to his II. The cash balanced was PP's and crossed shipped due to my feedback and a phone conversation.

I've only done one trade online, it was here. With a guy who had very little or no feedback, can't remember. I suggested, in order to trade, he would send me his equipment first, then I would send mine to him once I had his camera in hand. Worked out very well for both.

Bret:
Search a members posts to see if any are in the B&S Forums, click the thread...find his/her name and if they
have feedback there will be a # in green. Click to view. Feedback is only visible on one of the B&S boards.

Mr. T'Monkey,
thanks for the suggestion.
again, hope this is not a stupid
question, but how do i search a
members posts? Do i search by
user name?
This contact was made by PM.
He has supplied images and the
item is as he said it was.
so, how do i search?
and thanks for the patience
w/ a complete computer tanto.
