@rds What you propose sounds perfectly fair to me. This will be my first time doing a transaction like this. I don't even use Paypal that much, honestly. I appreciate that another forum member has vouched for you. For my own protection, if I'm paying first (and that is fine with me), I'd still like to do a couple of exchanges in the 20 USD range first to test the waters. Alternatively, if you're willing to pay first with a large amount approaching the 250 USD range, I am willing to give you a 5% premium over the exchange rate for that transaction time for your trust and my convenience. Either way is all right. I suppose you need my burst account information? How do you communicate Paypal information? On the forum or some sort of private message?
Sorry; very new to this! Have a nice day.
