Retailers, Manufacturers, ePay, AudiogoN, Paypal or whatever. Buying and selling advice.

It is incumbent on the seller to get the item to the buyer.......

in the condition described in the ad. This only makes sense, since the buyer cannot pack the item, only the seller can, and the seller dictates the shipping carrier, insurance, and cost of shipping. Additionally, in the event of an insurance claim the carrier will pay the sender of the package, and that is the seller.

Ebay, Audiogon and US Audiomart are pretty consistent that these are the rules of the road. My suggestion is to require insurance over a certain dollar amount or don't use the above sites if the rules seem unfair to you. Any internet transaction can leave one open to less than savory individuals, again though, if the exposure seems too much it may be best to demur.
