    Except PayPal from what?

    Of course I accept PalPal. danielwfromm@att.com. Pay early and often.

    And don't rely on a spell checker. They often get homonyms wrong.

    Cheers,

    WTB: Linhof 3000 4x5 camera in excellent condition - $1, seller pays shipping cost

    WTB: Chamonix 8x10 camera in excellent condition - $2, seller pays shipping cost

    I'll take all I can get so multiple sellers are no problem.

    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    A WTB post cannot set price, because the condition of the specific example of that item can't be known when it is posted.

    If I were to say, "I'll pay up to $350 for a pristine Speed Graphic...", and someone shows me one that is not as pristine as I hoped for and I then offer them $150, they will believe (and tell others) that I am baiting and switching.

    You can't set a price for an idea. You can only set a price for a specific, three-dimensional example.

    I do that every day. It's part of my job to develop and promote concepts and ideas. Some actually get realized as a specific 3-D product, but many remain conceptual. Even as concepts they are worth money and people like me set prices on them.

    This piece of non-specific, non-3-D wisdom will cost you 2 cents... that's my best price and I can't go any lower.

    Brian, you're on the deadbeat list. You solicited advise (your spelling, not mine), offered a price, and were sent some.

    Would it help if I said, "The check is in the mail"?

    But at the risk of racking up additional charges... waht's wrong with my spelling? I can spell; Ijust can't type.
