This is something we are not comfortable with.

Until we can implement a system in which both parties of the transaction can be verified, we do not wish to facilitate any transactions, whether they pass thru CC or not.

We wish to limit the chances of any negative experiences happening as a result of interaction on this site, and without verifying the parties involved we do not feel confident that we can protect our members from unscrupulous people.

In our opinion the "Looking For" section is an open invitation for merchants and scammers to hunt, and something we have little way to control.

We totally understand everyone's desire to have a method for exchanging their surplus tools and pans, but we must refrain from hastily responding to the requests until we can implement a solid solution.

Actually, if you have a paypal account and the person interested in your items has a paypal, you can still use it rather than involving cakecentral in anyway. I sent someone some supplies one time that she bought off me out of conversation and she paid me via paypal. I kept them money there for other expenditures.

Cake Central is involved at the point of providing the point of contact at which the buyer and seller met. This is the step at which we are seeking to be able to verify people prior to this contact taking place. We are not at all concerned about how the actual exchange of money is handled.
