    As said in the title, i am researching into the types of transactions people do online. More specifically i want to know which transactions you do between 2 or more persons, which require abit of trust ie article writing either you send the money first, so the receiver could run with your money and not give the articles, or they give you the articles first, the payer can then run without paying for the articles. Theres also quality assurance, when you pay for articles, and the quality is not upto scratch after you have already paid for it.
    Please let me know which transactions require that bit of trust, whether thats sending logo designs, articles etc. whatever. I havent done a poll as i want people to spout out a range of transactions.

    Thanks beforehand.

    Pretty much every transaction online involved this process of trust. Whether it's SEO, Web Design, article creation or something else. Whenever you make a purchase online their is always going to be some leap of faith.

    This! But people typically are trustworthy is what I have found. I can't say I've ever been stiffed really hard online. I do $3,000+/mo in transactions with various people from all over the world I have working for me and have never had a problem.

    I do ALOT of SEO work for clients and typically what I do is front a little money up front to build trust (maybe between $50-$100) and to test out the SEO provider and check out quality of work to make sure it is up to par ( I have high standards). After that I work on a weekly pay basis. Once trust is built both parties will want a good working relationship so its never really a problem.

    And a good failsafe is always hiring on places like Odesk or elance as well. Also when you send the money on paypal as a payment for service's you have the possiblity to dispute it so you can work to get your money back if you got stiffed.

    All in all I have no problem fronting a little money in the beginning to build trust with someone I am going to be working with.
