    In my experience selling and buying on ebay, I realized that the ability to talk to the buyer/seller would greatly improve my negotiation as well as boost my confidence in conducting the transaction.
    While searching for a service that enables such communication that lasts for the life of the transaction, I stumbed across http://www.talktrust.com.

    TalkTrust.com is a FREE service that offer the ability for eBay/Yahoo/Craigslist seller to communicate with their buyer and as the transaction completes, delete the phone number to avoid potential buyer’s remorse. I think it a win-winn situation for both the buyers and the sellers.

    No strings attached, TalkTrust.com is worth a try.
