i only buy on ebay so i am no help at all to a friend of mine that just started selling some bags. she has a buyer - potential buyer i should say - that had contacted her and asked if she could bid on her bag and IF she did in fact win it would it be ok if paid for it next friday. she said she wanted to contact her beforehand to see how she felt about this so that there would not be any problems for either of them. we looked at her feedback and it is very good. i don't know if she needs to check anything else before making a decision on this.
