I was just wondering what the best way to do the payments when selling a bow to a person over the internet? Then what’s the best way to send it to the person ?

I wrap foam tightly around with cling wrap then box.
Paypal is the standard that we have been using on forums for many years. Goods snd services.
Cheapest shipper. That is all discussed with the buyer. Extra communication can forego a lot of headache or hurt feelings later.

Face to face, cash transaction. Carried in padded hard case...bring a portable target for testing

Not everyone does pay pal. I do post office (only) money order, Walmart 2 Walmart money transfer or face to face transaction.

If shipping, completely wrap riser and limbs. Then wrap strings and cables. Then wrap the complete bow with bubble wrap. Encase bubble wrapped bow in blue styrofoam. Then put in cardboard box. Ship and insure for cost of replacement using UPS. Package like a gorilla will handle the package. Package like you want to receive it. Take pictures of every step for documentation in case of damage during transit. Take pictures of bow before and after bubble wrap.

I sell in the original box - most manufacturers have a bubble wrap sleeve for the bow, and foam on the top and bottom. I would recommend always hanging on the the original box if you can.
