    I'm looking to make my first transaction on NBR's Marketplace, and I want to set up a trade. I've filled out the form, but I'm just wondering what is the procedure for actually trading notebooks?

    Who sends it out first, trader or tradee? Should there be a middleman/collateral? I'd like to hear back from people that have done successful trades and anyone that has any advice. Thanks!

    I trade couple notebooks before and you have to agree with the trader who is going to ship first usually the one with more feedback waits until the other guy ship first but sometimes if the feedback is pretty equal both ship the same time :)

    If both of them are new users or low feedback then have a deposit in paypal and refund once the trade is done.

    When I traded my Studio XPS 16:

    I shipped first and the other guy sent me a PayPal deposit.

    How much was the deposit (in relation to the value/worth of the XPS)? I'm just curious as to how much of a deposit is needed.

    This was about 5 months ago, I think it went like this......

    A guy traded me his M11X plus cash. I just checked PayPal, he sent me the difference amount $150, and he sent a $550 deposit for the M11X.

    I shipped my XPS first, total value I had on it was $700. After the XPS was delivered to him, he sent me the M11X.

    When the M11X arrived I refunded the $550.
