A good way to check if ur bought goods are in safe hands is to check a sellers profile and see the coments previous customers of the seller have posted. Then check his/her aprroval rating. But dont stop there if you still have doubts a good way to determine if a seller is trust worthy is to email the person or as the links called ( ask the seller a question ) . Make sure you stress any queries you have about the product your interested in that way the seller can not try to hide any default or scratch the product may have, if the seller has no photos and your unsure, ask for them. If the seller really wants to sell the product he will provide them for you. Another pitfall alot of people fall into is the exchange rate make sure you check and understand what the rate is to your dollar. If u can not figure out what shipping and packing will cost all up in their dollar email the seller and ask for a qoute on the whole item including the product, packaging and shipping cost. Also a good way to save time especially if the product is far away is to ask the seller ( or if you can get intouch with the shipping company ) how long it will take to get the product to you. That way if you find the product at the same price some where closer or with a better pick up arrangement. You can save yourself alot of inconvenience, time and perhaps even alot of money off shipping or freight costs.
