Take steps to protect your online purchase or sale!

We strongly recommend using a service like PayPal as they provide a degree of buyer/seller protection and will assist with dispute resolution.

When shipping an item, be sure to always use some sort of delivery confirmation as you’ll need it if the buyer says your package never arrived.

Beyond these two basics, there is also a wealth of information for used kites to be found with some basic Google searching.
