I live in eastern Washington. If I wanted to sell on this forum what are acceptable/safe forms of payment if a prospective purchaser happens to be from the Seattle area? Venmo, PayPal? Shipping? After payment is received I assume.

Thanks

I haven't heard of any problems from anyone doing transactions here but use common sense.  It's good practice to take steps to protect yourself and are comfortable with whoever you are buying from or selling to. Don't ignore any red flags or things that give you pause.  If they have a longer posting history here they are more likely to be legit.  That goes for both buyers and sellers. I would be very cautious buying from someone who just showed up. PayPal is generally safe for buyers as long as you don't pay with friend and family method. If you are a seller be sure to retain proof of shipment as you will need that if the buyer disputes never receiving the item or disputing it was something other than was represented.
