    Default I want to start a new craigslist!

    So I have too much time on my hands lately and I want to put it to good use. I wanna partner up and start a website sorta like craigslist, but the difference is you can pay online so people could use their credit cards. I know what you're thinking, "people would pay but never get the item they bought." Well, I'm saying lets say you want a truck for $2000, but you don't have the cash. Well just like craigslist, you contact the seller and meet up, check out the truck, etc, and if you want to buy it, you can just go to the page on your cellphone, enter your credit card information and send him the money instantly. That way nobody is getting ripped of. You should still be able to negotiate and the seller should be able to change the the price to whatever he agrees on. The best part is we can charge a % of every transaction. I'm still working on everything right now and it's copyright but I was wondering if anybody wanted to join and hopefully become millionaires. I'm gonna need a lot of experienced workers.

    OK let me get this right, a buyer meets the seller, then goes back home and buys the product through your site just so he pays you a percentage? Sort of seems a bit flawed to me.

    I would be down to jump on borad and could easily make something like this but... how would you handle charge backs and stuff to easy to scam with credit cards as I have learned from working in the online industry

    Lol. why should I use your site? sorry but you are competing with the big boys here. And these type of sites work only if you let them free for a few years.

    No I'm saying the buyer can buy it on the spot using their cellphone. So the transaction goes through instantly, then he can go home with whatever he bought.

    With charge backs I'm thinking we make it just like craigslist and once you buy, there's no refunds.

    It will be free to post and stuff just like craigslist, I'm saying you can still pay with cash too! But if you can't, the buyer can make an option to pay with a credit card. And when they do that, we will make some $$$ off of that.

    Or he could just hand over money and avoid paying you a percentage.

    Just to humor you, you would need to make an app that both phones could take a picture of and upload on site of the transaction being placed. This will be required for any chargeback type issues that users will have via Paypal as they will want some sort of proof of purchase or proof that it didn't occur.

    But then again, the whole idea is pretty much a waste as if you were to ever build up a following, CL would just revamp their already dominate audience and crush you
