[RC] Shipping COD? - carolyn

UPS is the easiest way to ship COD.  There is a COD fee (around $7).  You have to pay to ship the saddle, plus the COD fee. UPS collects the check and then sends it to you.  You can specify that it is certified funds (bank check or money order), but I know from personal experience that UPS doesn't always make sure that they get certified funds. 

She may be asking you to send it COD to get the item faster or that she doesn't have the money now, but will by the time the saddle arrives. I would ask her why she wants you to send it COD, that might help you decide if you want to do it.  But if you are uncomfortable doing a COD transaction, then I wouldn't.  The only benefit to you is that you get the saddle shipped faster, and she can get the same benefit by paying you via PayPal.  However, you would be charged a fee by PayPal for that.

Subject: [RC] Shipping COD?

I contacted someone on Ridecamp Classifieds who was looking for a saddle like one I wanted to sell. She decided to buy it, now wants me to ship it COD. I've never done that. Anyone know how? Is it safer for us both? Any pitfalls?  Thanks. Heidi
