Rolled the bike out to go for ride with wife. Thought it felt 'heavy' but muscled it out anyway. Once out, noticed hugely flat front tire. Might even have done the damage rolling it flat.

I need some advise you all.
I'm selling something in the parts section of the flea market and am wondering what forms of payment there are besides pay-pal. One guy, from San Diego, is interested but asked if I had another form of payment. He doesn't have a pay-pal account. Besides him sending me a check or a money order and me waiting for it to clear what else is there?
I'm new to the selling and shipping over the net. Thanks for any help!

Postal money order or Paypal is all we use. The post office is a PITA.

So, I'm not much help.......

That sucks. I have a flat on the front of the KLX I should fix today.
You should keep a spare. A spare bike that is!


Wanna borrow one?

I thought about a money order but should I wait to get it before I ship the item? I'm pretty confident the guy isn't going to rip me off but would still like to see the money in hand first. I just signed up for a pay-pal account two weeks ago myself.

Have you perused the flea market to see if you can find similar items for sale?

Depends. If it's worth whatever you could stand to lose, whether it's $100 or whatever, you might be more trusting. I don't mind a cashier's check or money order. You don't have to wait for it to clear unless it's drawn on a personal account. But hell yes, wait to get the check before shipping.

Personally I think they should have paypal or wait for another offer. If they squawk about holding the merchandise for the check to arrive and clear, suggest they open a paypal account. If they want it bad enough, it only takes a few minutes to do. I have advertised "paypal only" before. It works.

That's the way I do it. ymmv

I'm a total sucker waiting to get burned. I've been trading on ebay for over 10 years w/out a problem. I take paypal - though you do pay the paypal fee - but I've taken money orders and personal checks. I also often ship before I've received payment. Oh, and I'll ship anywhere, though haven't sold anything to Nigeria yet. But lots to South Amarica, Asia... got a guy right now in Croatia that wants to bid on something. Bring'em on!

Of course if it's big money - i've sold 3 vehicles and bought two on ebay - then it's money in-hand.

Haven't done much on adv fleamarket, but what I have done, has all gone well.

ym*will*v

Thanks for the answers, tips!
Actually he has used pay-pal for a long time. He just hasn't used them in awhile and doesn't want to start again...He also said he has no problems sending a money order. I'll make sure he gets a postal money order.
