I’ve sold a couple parts since the pandemic started, and I’ve always just left them on my doorstep and had people leave money under the mat. Is it safer that way? Probably a little (one guy did put two twenties in a ziploc bag). Am I at risk of being ripped off? Definitely. But no one has yet — including people who bought some non-MTB stuff I sold. For items over like 80 bucks, I ask for prepayment via Venmo or PayPal, just to be sure. It’s gone pretty well so far, all considered.
