No! You should wait for the payment to be COMPLETELY taken care of before you mail your item. You gotta protect yourself, you know! I would recommend taking money orders only until you get your paypal account.

When I was first buying, I preferred using money orders, because I didn't want to give my credit card number out. (You have to protect your identity.) That's why I love paypal. I can use my debit card, credit card and bank account through paypal, and I get the assurance of paypal protecting my account numbers.

Also, if you never receive the item, paypal will refund your money!

Sandy -

What happens if you ship the item - it gets lost - does paypal take the money back from you to refund the buyer?

Exactly. You lose if it gets lost.

So, it pays to do the "Delivery Confirmation" thing.

Ahhhhh..... I did not know that.

I sold my pink boots (I'm going to miss them) but my shoes did not sell.

Some buyers don't know how to use the paypal refund thing, though. It all depends on the customer.

My shipment went out to the buyer a couple days after she paid, and now she has received her package and left positive feedback.
"great yarn, excellent ebayer"
