I was perusing the for sale by individuals forum as I'm sure most of us do. I noted a particular knife where the seller stated that their terms of sale were that once they had dropped the knife off at the post office it was the buyer's problem. First let me stipulate that I don't believe that the seller is doing anything ethically or morally wrong. They are very clear with their sales terms. That said, would you buy a knife under those terms? Personally as a seller I never ship without insurance and have every expectation that if something goes awry during shipping that it's MY problem. I issue a refund and then pursue the insurance. Fortunately this is not a common occurrence but that is the way I operate. I can't help thinking about all the things that can go wrong. Packages can disappear into the ether. Packages can arrive without items inside. Packages can be delivered to bad addresses. Porch pirates can make a raid (signature confirmation solves this problem). What say you?
