I found the perfect saddle on Tack Trader but the seller lives in another state. Has anyone sucessfully purchased items through Tack Trader via PayPal? Would PayPal offer any protection if I paid with my credit card? Communication with the seller seems to be good. They answered all my questions and took pics/measurements right away but I have never purchased anything outside of eBay or an online store before. It sounds so scary.
I have sold 2 saddles on TackTrader and both were good experiences. You will get protection from Paypal if you are a Verified Member. I, as a seller, never ship to a non-Verified member as you open yourself up to fraud and charge-backs. Besides, Paypal will not give the seller protection either. Chances are if they have given you have asked for and are verified, you are probably okay.
