I want to share a story.

A couple of weeks ago a fellow was looking for a WH part and I had what he needed. We agreed on a price shipped to his postal address.

He sent the money a day before I sent the package. I don't think either one of us were worried about being ripped off.

Well I received the payment and he received the part. After the buyer saw the cost of shipping, he sent me a PM stating he was going to send more money as the cost of shipping was more than that of the item he bought. I said that wasn't necessary, as we had agreed on the price and I was fine with it.

A few days later I received another letter with some more money for the part.

 

I just wanted to say how comfortable it is to deal with folks here (and some other places) because we share a common interest and feel a closeness to one another even if we have never met in person.

I agree, there are people on other forums I go on that I have no problem shipping the part before I receive the money because I know them to be good people and true to there word.

Its cool that the buyer sent you the money....shipping costs, mail in general is getting outrageous these days

I bought some parts off one of our sponsers, asked him for a total so I could send him money, but he never replied. Next thing I know I get parts in the mail with an invoice. I ended up mailing him money to address on invoice, I would have never thought he would just send them, great guy.

 

I have gotten burnt several times shipping parts before being paid. I either get shafted on costs or I never got the money so while there are great guys still out there, unfortunately I have become cautious with my dealings.
