    so i'm selling some of my equipment and this what the guy responds with:
    .
    .
    .

    Thanks for the prompt response...I want this item for a fiend as a Birthday Gift, but I am presently in Calgary Canada on a family visit so i wont be able to pick up the item from you anymore, so i will like you to get the item straight to my friend in which i will be responsible for the shipment via USPS Express Mail signed...and payment via PayPal merchant for a secure transaction..so kindly get back to me with your PayPal email address so that i can effect the payment to you ASAP
    Hope this sounds good?
    Get back to me ASAP
    Regards

    I've never used Paypal before, so i'm not sure how safe and secure that is. Once the money is sent, i should be able to withdraw it into my account or will the buyer need to confirm that hes received the equipment before i can deposit it in my account? i'm not sure who this all works.

    BTW the paypal email that he is going to use to send me the money is the one that I use to log in right?

    if you get paid with paypal, only ship to a confirmed address.
