When you see an item for sale, there is usually a description of how the seller wants to be paid. It is a gentleman's agreement. Other than a credit card guarantee, you probably don't have any real recourse if someone stiffs you. Buying from a person with only a short history on the forum may be risky. Buying from someone who has hundreds or thousands of posts and has been a member on the forum for years is a pretty good bet you'll be in good shape and dealing with an honest person. There is a trader's feedback section but this is not always used consistently.

I sold a bunch of stuff to a buyer with a long history on the forum and lived across the country. His payment was sent and didn't get to me after about 10 days. We kept in touch regularly. He said he wasn't going to risk his reputation over a box of reloading supplies. Good point. His payment came and the sale was finished. Win-win. Be patient, keep in touch with the seller and give snail mail its time! Use insurance and/or tracking info when needed.

Good luck.
