    The honors system, basically. Although, most prefer to use Paypal to provide some layer of protection.

    At MacRumors, the Marketplace is heavily moderated, with a 100-post limit in place to create a thread. Also, there is a exhaustive list of Marketplace Rules. These measures are in place to protect both the buyer and seller, and provide a good experience for both.

    Of course, that's not to say there haven't been problems before, and all transactions are made at your own risk.

    Yep, it's all trust I'm afraid.

    The sheer fact that you made this thread would lead me to advise you maybe not to use the market place. Of course I mean no disrespect to you, and I hope you can see where I'm coming from.
