Buyer's Etiquette: Craigslist

Pay attention to WHERE the item is listed as located in the adIf it says buyer must pick up, don't ask them to meet you.Don't be outraged when the seller doesn't want to drive clear across town for a $10 sale.If they buyer gives you their availability for pick up, don't suggest different times.If the seller says they are at work, do not blow up their phone.Text messages sent at 5:00 a.m. may not get responded to before work. Sorry. If you say you will be in touch, actually do the follow up.Don't suggest payment by check when the ad says cash only.Don't be insulted when the person does allow you to pay by check, but won't arrange for pick up until it clears.Don't insist the seller text you or give you an address before they are ready.
