I always pay attention to the shipping conditions. There are a couple of legal terms that people who are buying and selling should be familiar with. Free on board location (fob) means shipping party is responsible for the item until it is with the shipping company at the stated location. Free along side location (fas) the shipper is responsible until the is either tendered to the shipping carrier if location is the shippers address or until it is out of the carrier possession at the location named. I have seen the abbreviations used in some eBay listings and know at least on person who lost the PayPal argument because it was fas LA CA. Buyer was in Florida.
